Need G-103 Acro Master Cylinder by Ray Lovinggood
Our club's G-103 Acro needs a new brake master cylinder. We can probably get one from Grob in Ohio within several weeks, but we would like to get one sooner. Does anyone, anywhere, have a master cylinder they would sell us? Then, we would pay overnight freight to our club's location in North...

Solo in a 2-32 by M B
Hollister Gliding Club in northern california solos students and uses the 2-32 as a primary trainer. I think their reasoning is that it is useful for sightseeing and for training, and for those who are 'big boned.' If I owned a glider operation I'd personally have students solo an $8000 2-33...

For Lennie - soaring on Mars by Mike Borgelt
The pressure difference across a thin vertical slice in a fluid is dP = rho x g x dh where rho is density, g = acceleration due to gravity, dh is the vertical thickness of the slice. So by rearrangement we get dP/dh = rho x g dP/dh is the vertical pressure gradient(rate of change of pressure

SSA Soaring Magazine by Mel Eastburn
I am attempting to dispose of a very large collection of gliding books and mags acquired over many years by a friend who died very suddenly recently. Any proceeds will go to charity. Amongst this is a complete (I believe) set of the US SSA Magazine 'Soaring' from mid 1966 with some earlier issues....

Pullups, I stand corrected! by Derrick Steed
Lars, I think you may be forgetting something else. For the same speed of travel, the light glider is using energy faster than the heavy glider. It seems paradoxical, but it is true - look at the loaded and unloaded polars to see that the heavy glider is either: a) travelling faster for the same...

Cobra Trailer by
My PW5 came with a very nice Cobra trailer that originally was for a Discus. It's all metal (no Fiberglas). Needless to say it's way to big for the PW5-5 although it has been converted very nicely. I'm sure it would be very easy to convert it back for a 15 meter ship. If anyone would like to...

Tow plane airspeed vs. glider being towed airspeed? by MHende6388
Asked a question I could not answer yesterday..... Why does the towplane indicated airspeed always indicate so much higher than the glider behind? As much as 10 knots. Consistent with the Pipers, Cessnas and Grummans. And yes, compensated for kts. vs. mph. Thanks, Michael
