Air Tour Safety Standards NPRM by Vaughn
The FAA is now conducting a "public meeting" via Internet on the sightseeing NPRM. I have not seen any comments there (other than my own) from glider people. I really suggest that you take another look at that NPRM, read the comments, read the responses from the FAA, and say your piece. Interest...

More on transponder petition by Ian Cant
I apologize for my loose terminology in last message. Gliders are exempted within the FAR section 215 from transponder requirements, not by a separate 'exemption letter'. And I was not clear about why I distinguished the 'all airspace above 10,000 ft' from the 'more than 40 / 20 miles'...

Transponders and Radios - USA by Ray Lovinggood
While I would like to have a transponder installed, I don't have two necessary items: 1. Money 2. Panel Space My panel isn't overly large and doesn't have room for a B-50 (two holes) AND room for a 'back-up' variometer. So, when I 'splurge' for another instrument, it will be for a B-50 and not a...

Registered BLIP-MAP users, fill out survey by Stewart Kissel
I received it and filled it out, some changes which will no doubt get discussed here in the works. Give yourself a few minutes to fill it out, it is an indepth survey. And for what it's worth, I would like to see SSA sponsor this product.

World Records by Nick Gilbert
Can anyone think of a reason why there are separate mens & womens world records? The ease of 'relief' is the only disadvantage I can think of for women. I'm not saying that I think there shouldn't be! Nick.

Zen and the Art of Landouts by Doug Hoffman
Stefan wrote: Jack wrote: When a combat pilot Why oh why do "the" Americans (apologies to those who don't) have such high esteem for fighter pilots, killing and war? Isn't soaring about peace and understanding nature? And how dare you to change the subject line to "Zen" when you...

Good Lift at Marfa February 22 by Snead1
Today, Sunday February 22, soaring conditions were very good in Marfa Texas. Cloud base was about 13,500. Thermals varied in strength, but I make a few turns at over 7 knots. Wind was about 15 mph out of the south. I did not find any wave. Bill Snead 6W

Landout Laws by Charles Petersen
We had two landouts at Seminole yesterday, both in the same field, - a pasture with cattle and a locked gate. One of the pilots visited a nearby farmhouse, and spoke with the wife of the property owner asking permission to enter and a key. She was very nice and called her son. He agreed to call...

LS-4 Transponder antenna location? by Matt Herron
I'm installing a class C transponder in my LS-4, and I'd like to hear from anyone who's done a similar installation with regard to a few questions about antenna location. Since the fusilage is not carbon fiber I intend to locate the antenna internally, and the easiest placement seems to be way...

Glider transport costs? by Jeremy Zawodny
I've been shopping around for used gliders and one of the factors I need to consider is how far away it is. Obviously, if it's far away, I'll need to get someone I don't know to do the pre-buy inspection and will pay more to get the glider to me. My local FBO says that $1/mile is a good figure to...
