MIRRORGLAZE by John Firth[_4_]
For year, I used to use mirrorglaze for my canopy, almost every preflight. Then it disappeared from local plastics supply. Bought some online a year or two ago, used with good results. Yesterday, I squirted some on the PIK canopy and immediately started polishing. To my dismay some patches seemed...

Oxygen Mount Question by YourNameHere
I have a Schempp-Hirth Oxygen mount that appears to use an "M" size cylinder. 5.25 inches in diameter. Question: Steel or Aluminum? The front bracket that holds the cylinder neck, appears that it might fit steel cylinders only because of neck length, as it appears that aluminum cylinders have...

European Glider Classifieds by Kevin Neave[_2_]
Hi All on this side of the Atlantic. I tend to monitor the classified ads on segelflug.de, but the volume of items for sale seems to be less than it was a few years ago. For example I only think I've seen a single Discus bT, and no D2cT for sale since autumn 2014. Have people in Europe found...

Lets say you are deploying a retractible gear glider in a club with members who some might suspect of landing the thing gear-up someday. (Of course, you private owners never land gear-up...) Is there a way to minimize the damage when the inevitable day arrives? Maybe. One of my favorite...

Use of OGN to track club aircraft by [email protected]
It's been admittedly a lousy spring for soaring in Houston this year so we have had much time to do maintenance and upgrades on the fleet (if this weather keeps up, snorkels will be next). I have been installing FLARM in our club aircraft this winter, purely for the anti-collision features. It...
