Update: Segelflug and Zink Calendars from Knauff and Grove by Steve
Just got off the phone with Tom. He and Doris have been on the road delivering sailplanes. Anyway, for those that are wondering (maybe he has a list that keeps most informed?) he is about to go crazy over the Zink calendars. He tells me they have been held in US Customs since about 1 December. ...

Lighthawk Progress? by [email protected]
Does anyone know what the current status of the lighthawk ultralight glider project is? I know the initial flight test in 2002 went well. But I haven't heard anything since.

Does Vno change with weight? by Mark James Boyd
I know that stall speed, and min sink and best L/D and\ Va, all change with weight. But what about Vno? I have never heard of Vno changing with weight. I know it is predicated on a vertical gust of some amount (anywhere from 20-45 ft/sec depending on certifying rules). For now let's assume it's...

Segelflug and Zink 2004 Calendars from Knauff and Grove by Steve
Anyone out there gotten theirs yet? If so, about how long ago? I am worried that the delivery service (did he send them Postal, or UPS?) might have eaten them. Steve Leonard

weight by David Smith
I am lucky having a dry barn to keep the trailer in winter, even so I use a heater for 3 or 4 weeks around this time of year. Is it true that many new trailers are double skinned and sealed to keep the inside dry ?. This is the opposite of conventional ventilated trailer thinking, does it...

iPaq screen reflections - anyone really happy with their solution? by Jim Kelly
Greetings! Summer has begun down under, and my first flight with an iPaq reminded me just how bad the reflections are in bright light . . . sooo hard to read, especially when wearing sunglasses. Were there any solutions that worked well for you Northerners this season?? I have noted a film from...

weight by David Smith
A boatbuilding friend set me on the right lines when he came to repair a glass fibre dinghy. Apparently the resin reinforced glass is porous and only the gellcoat is impervious, so if the gellcoat is cracked or damaged it will absorb moisture. He recommended thorough drying before refinishing. When...

Did commercial glider pilots used to give instruction? by Mark James Boyd
I read recently that in 1996, the regulations were changed so that commercial balloon pilots (who used to be able to give instruction) could no longer do so. They were instead required to become balloon CFIs. As far as I know the only current reference to instruction given by non-CFI or ATPs is...

An Historical Perspective on the Wright Accomplishment by Gary Osoba
With all the attention and analysis currently being accorded the Wright Brothers’ accomplishments a century ago, a question comes to mind: Is 100 years a long enough time to develop a balanced historical perspective of this achievement? I would suggest not, if the reviewer attempts a perspective

the buzz by John Shelton
The buzz is that SpaceShipOne shoots tomorrow. I'm going to be freezing my ass off out there with my binoculars. I missed the Wright Bros. I missed Jimmy Doolittle doing the outside loop. I missed Yeager breaking Mach One. I missed Armstrong walking on the moon. I missed the Voyager flying around...
