JS-1C vs EB 29 ASH31 by [email protected]
Why is it that the JS-1C seem to be the open class ship? One would think the 3 choices of wing span for the EB-29 and the extra wing span would make this the best hands down open ship. I noticed that the JS-1C-18 is equal to the ASG-29-18. One would think the ASH-31 with the same outer tips as...

Looking for a set of ASK-21 ballast weights by kirk.stant
Our club (SLSA) has an ASK-21 that did not come with any front cockpit ballast weights (the lead triangles, and the 2 "bolts" that hold them in place under the pilot's knees). If anyone knows of a set lying around unused, please let me know. Thanks in advance, Kirk 66

Has anyone in the soaring world experienced a PW6 spoiler's guiding rod detaching from the fuselage wall in the front seat? Is anyone still representing these gliders in the US? Do they manufacture them still? There are some ADs on PW5/6 rod attachments, what else? Why can't I find any recent...

C-182 towplane by [email protected]
Good used Pawnee tugs are getting rare. Actually, very rare. What else is there that isn't 50+ years old? There is a C-182 at Nephi hauling skydivers which has Wing-X wing-tip extensions which increase its load capacity, rate-of-climb and ceiling. It is said this also makes a C-182 into a good...
