Another FLARM thread by Andy[_1_]
The FLARM in US thread has taken so may twist and turns I decided to start a new one. I was prompted by a discussion on u.r.a.s to read the SGU FLARM trial report again. I had read it when it was first published but since FLARM was not available in US at that time I quicky forgot about it. It's...

Flarm in the US by Steve Freeman
Curious about the use of Flarm in the US. Was told by another pilot that the frequency used by Flarm is not approved for that category of use in the US. Is that true? If it is, do they make units that use a US approved frequency?

Landing Frequency (USA Pilots) by noel.wade
All - How many of you in the USA use the same frequency when flying cross- country as in the traffic-pattern? (i.e. you _don't_ switch frequencies when you're returning to the airport and preparing to land) As an alternate way to ask the same question: How many soaring sites have you been to,...
