About the Governance of the Soaring Society of America by [email protected]

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...

Portable PowerFLARM real-time clock? by [email protected]
I have a Portable PowerFLARM, and it creates IGC flight log files with the right dates (from the GPS data), but files that it writes to the SD card are all dated 1/1/2010. Has an internal battery for the real-time date died, or does it not have one?
