Letter to the FAA by Walt Connelly
Before I send my letter to the FAA I'd like to ask if anyone has ever attempted to get them to see the light and end the use of Schweizer hooks on tow planes here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. It is a well known fact and clearly stated in the SSA/SSF and FAA circulars and...

FES vs Gas Engine – Finding a Thermal? by V1[_4_]
While reading the FES article in June Soaring (yes, I’m behind in my reading), I noticed the author’s comment about searching for a thermal while FES was running, then shutting down FES as he started to climb. This is a topic I don’t recall seeing discussed in any FES vs gas comparisons. In...

Hydraulic Jumps? by Dave Nadler
Bernard Eckey was a great article in June/July S&G on hydraulic jump. I've never had the experience of flying in this - anybody here done so? All the wave flying I've done has been classic wave (primarily ground induced, but also lots of thermal wave)... It seems the conditions for this might...

What canopy adhesive to use? by LongJourney
I've done a search in both RAS and on the web but I'm not finding the information I'm looking for. I'm restoring a 1963 S Austria and one of the previous owners used what I think is Sikaflex to bond the canopy glass to the metal canopy frame. It's now separating badly. What should I use to bond the...

Cobra Trailer Wiring Presentation Available for Download by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
I finally purchased a glider that came with a Cobra trailer last year (remember the old adage?). The trailer came with a cobbled together vehicle connection and the original incandescent lighting. So I set about "correcting" this. I really can't help myself to not try to "improve" everything...

ASW27B prices falling by [email protected]
There are 3 nice ASW27's for sale, all at reduced prices in the Wings and Wheels website. We 3 owners are mystified at the seeming lack of interest in this ship. Two of us are no longer flying thanks to Father Time and we're throwing in lots of soaring related "goodies" with your...

Jantar Standard Canopy by jmarc
Is that possible to buy somewhere only the plastic part of the Jantar canopy? I should probably take a look at the "ceebaileys" like the previous post said for the Blanik. But I think it will not be available that way. So I post here to know if anybody have very good condition Jantar canopy...
