About the Governance of the Soaring Society of America by [email protected]
It's been brought to my attention that some members have asked where they might find documentation relating to the governance of the SSA (on its website). I hope this sheds some light and puts to rest any notion the SSA is not transparent. As the Director of Region 6 it is my opinion that the SSA...

LSA weight limit increase, good for gliding? by [email protected]
It appears that the FAA might be upping the weight limit on LSA aircraft. One of the main limits holding back marketable gliders from being LSA eligible was the low Vne. If they are opening up the LSA rules for more change, and changing to more of a risk-based rulemaking we should be able to argue...

04' Cobra metal top leaks by [email protected]
How does the water sealing system on a Cobra normally work? On the inside lower edge of each side there is a small trough. (A great place to store the TE probe, etc.) If I look closely, there are small high water marks in there. Also drain holes at the front and rear ends. (One of which was...

Are air filters necessary on Pitot, static or TE lines? by Pete[_9_]
Hey all, I have noticed some gliders have what look like small fuel filters spliced into the tubing prior to avionics. I imagine this is a safeguard to dust, etc entering the avionics. Seems to make sense eventually what's outside is going to get inside.... However, is this necessary? I see a lot...
