(USA) FS: Cambrideg 302 by Tuno
Less than two years old, serial number 4HA, software version 2.63, calibration date 1/24/2008, offered at $2000. I've been using this as a backup logger but I'd like to switch to a lower cost flight recorder that uses its own power supply. Also available for an additional $200 are an iPAQ hx4705...

airparks with gliders? by tienshanman
Does anyone know of nice, residential airparks in good soaring areas that would be accommodating of gliders? Western US, Northeast US, whatever.....I need to come back to the US and find a soarable place to live, without having to commute to an airfield.

See and Avoid - Birds by Andy[_1_]
The thing that is perhaps most interesting to me about the A320 Hudson incident is the report that the first officer, who was pilot flying, saw the canada geese and "made note of it". Why didn't he take immediate evasive action? It will be very interesting to see the CVR transcript. I wonder how...

Older Cobra trailer brake oscillation by Brian Bange[_2_]
I just towed my new (to me) Cobra for the first time and when I brake even moderately, the tires lock up on the trailer, then let go, then lock up in a repetitive cycle of about 3Hz. What do I do? Brian

AR3201 Harness? by noel.wade
Hi All, I have an old Becker AR3201 that's working fine; but I managed to slice a few of the wires in the harness while re-wiring my glider this month (I decided it was time to get the rat's nest of PVC wire and old tube-type fuses out of the cockpit). A blade-type fuse on the battery, Anderson...

Pik-27 towplane by Brad[_2_]
http://www.windcraft.fi/pik27/welcome.htm The website indicates this could be built from a kit. While maybe not viable for a commercial operation, it sure could appeal to a club. Brad

(USA) WTB: backup logger by Tuno
I'm looking for a blind backup logger, IGC approved, that uses its own power source (EW or similar). If you have a gently used one you're willing to part with at a reasonable price please contact me via e- mail. (If I find one I'll have a one year old 302 FS.) ~ted/2NO

What's the best way to install a new tire tube ? by [email protected]
I have an ASW-15B. Anyone have any good advice to make sure I safely and securely install a new "tube" inside my tire? The tire tread looks good, it just needs air everytime I show up to fly it. I would hate to blow a flat on takeoff then have to reject or worse end up in a ground loop due to a...
