Maxim Magazine soaring article by [email protected]
The March issue of Maxim magazine has a multi page illustrated article on gliders. Haven't seen it yet, but it is apparently pretty well done. YMMV

Soaring the Andes by Maurits Hebels
Hi everyone, Next January (or the one after that) I would love to spend a few weeks gliding in Chile. I tried contacting Vitacura near Santiago, but they are not responding. Are there people here who have experience flying in that area? Thanks

We need an ASW-19 rebirth for $25,000 by [email protected]
What we need in soaring is a new glider built for a reasonable price. $150,000 for a new glider is just not even a consideration for most people. Let's face it, you can get a low mileage Ferrari for half that price! The PW-5 was a terrible failure. The engineers made the wingspan too short,...

Colditz Glider on NOVA PBS - USA by Charlie M. (UH & 002 owner/pilot)
I just saw another version, also on NOVA. It was done in 2011 and they actually built the glider and launched it off the roof as originally planned. They flew it via radio control, made it out of the prison and could have done a landing but were getting close to houses. Looked like they had people...

Make Sailplane Racing Great Again by [email protected]
You will only improve if you are honest with yourself and admit your weaknesses. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. A tow rope looses 50% of its strength with a knot it in. For those who have tasted flight, their eyes will be forever turned skyward.. And for those who have tasted...
