Closest airfield to NYC to fly gliders or to keep a SLMG by albs
I live in Europe and will be relocating to New York City next spring. Which would be the closest airfield where I could keep a SLMG (doesn't necessarily need to be a glider club) or the closets airfield where gliders are operated (which and/or tow)? Any that you'd recommend in particular? thank you

Does anyone have experience with this device? If so please comment. http://www.uavionix.com/products/pingbuddy/ Also has anyone been successful with getting XC Soar to accept a GDL 90 protocol so that one can use such a device whilst running XC Soar? This would eliminate the need to run a EFB and...

Johnny Byrd (was: 30 Gone) by [email protected]
I thoughtlessly posted my earlier message (below) a few minutes ago with a somewhat obscure subject, not realizing that "30"--a contest number that for many of us evoked only one pilot's name--had been reassigned. Apologies to anyone who was inadvertently...

New Zealand soaring movie by [email protected]
Long time ago I saw a neat movie about a father and daughter(?) learning to soar in New Zealand. Great scenery. Remind me the name of the movie? Also, if my 14 YO son gets instruction and solos in New Zealand does the flight time and solo endorsement from a Kiwi certified flight instructor count...

ASW 19 tail wheel by [email protected]
I have now destroyed two of those silly rubber tail skid/wheel things on my ASW-19. It's a black rubber skid shaped device that has a roller blade wheel molded into it. It looks cool. But if you push it sideways too many times the wheel gets ripped out of the skid. Or if you fly out of a...

Displaying ADS-B UAT Traffic on PowerFlarm by WaltWX[_2_]
I agree with Darryl Ramm's assessment that a PowerFlarm and Mode S transponder (Trig T22 in my case) in my glider is the best solution for collision awareness and "good aviation citizenship" with other powered traffic. That's what I have in my glider. However, monitoring ADS-B UAT (978Mhz)...

30 Gone by [email protected]
I've been waiting for an "official" note. But absent that, I'm saddened to pass long the news that we lost another one a week or so back: Johnny Byrd, "30", left us after a long illness. I wish I could recount the contest wins, the stories, the good times so many of us shared around the country...

Grob 103 ASI Very Sensitive in Yaw? by Papa3[_2_]
I was checking someone out yesterday in a Grob 103 and we were experimenting with various things including yaw sensitivity. We noticed that the ASI is completely useless with anything more than about 10 degrees of yaw. Like, it goes to almost zero and flutters around. Given how poor Grob...
