Diameter of thermals by Waveguru
Some days the thermals are big, and some days they are very small in diameter and it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with their strength or height. Do any of you know what determines their size? It seems that on the days they are small, they stay small all day, and vise versa. Boggs

Rolladen- Schneider LS3A flap seals- Do they really make any difference? by [email protected]

Round out and flare with fully open spoilers in a PW-6? Other gliders? by son_of_flubber
The PW-6 has very effective spoilers, and some other gliders have even more effective spoilers. Assuming C.G. is within limits and runway is level, is it possible to round out and flare with the spoilers fully open? Does one need extra airspeed? How much extra? (Yep. I know it is advisable to...

Oxygen - Rent a system? by CWJr
I need an O2 system for one week, and really don't want to have to purchase if one could be rented. Anyone know of such? I've seen medical supply houses that rent O2 bottle-reg-cannula system for a week. But from what I've seen, the regulator is only rated to 10,000 MSL, so no good for flying.
