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...

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...

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...

Auto Towing a 1-26 by [email protected]
I'm a new glider pilot looking at purchasing a 1-26. I'm looking at gaining the flights and experience to get the Commercial Glider and adding the CFI-G to my existing CFI-A. I envision doing auto tows at my local 3200ft airport. I'll hopefully be getting to 600AGL to just do laps around the...

New House Thermal by [email protected]
The Treasure Coast Soaring Club will soon have a new house thermal. Florida Power And Light is in the process of building a 400 acre solar power plant within 3/4 mile from our airport. Heat from this type of farm should make for a great house thermal. Anyone out there with experience flying over...

Ok - here is a question for the FAR experts: On August 21, there will be a total solar eclipse occurring - among other places - over South Carolina. The duration of the total eclipse is around 2min 35 seconds. Is this considered night time? Can I fly a glider under VFR-daytime rules during this...

Standards for competition reporting by acehu11
As a low-time SEL private pilot with interest in soaring and obtaining a glider rating, I often follow the news of soaring competitions on the SSA website, Facebook, rec.aviation.soaring, the FAI site, and others.

Temporarily operating a German registered glider in the US by [email protected]
Dear US-gliding community, it seems likely that I am going to spend about 2 year in the US (NJ area) starting next spring and I would like to bring my German registered glider along. Given it is for 2 years only, I would like to keep the ship under its German flag and keep any changes to glider...

Cobra hydraulic bottle jacks - where to buy? by [email protected]
I am looking for a source for a replacement bottle jack for a cobra trailer ramp (yes, I know I should switch to the mechanical jack and all problems will go away, but I don't want to go down that route yet). The Torin 2-ton jack that Walmart and Autozone sell is extremely poorly built, in addition...

The Cobra "Ramp Grind" - a fix by bumper[_4_]
New "bumper" product announcement: The ramp sliders on my 2002 Cobra trailer were metal on metal, bolt threads gouged the extruded aluminum floor rails and there was metal on metal wear.. Some later trailers have plastic washers, but those don't last or work well either. I made plastic sliders for...
