Scholarship/Work-Study Type Opportunity by John[_27_]
We are exploring the notion of exchanging "work-time" for instruction/ flying time at our club. The idea is to offer this to younger folks who show an interest in soaring/aviation, and would be a good worker. Part of the goal is to assist with coverage on the field - especially the wing-running...

Blanik L-13 elevator cable replacement by Brad[_5_]
Greetings, group! Our local club has a pair of L-13s. In one of them, we recently discovered a badly-corroded elevator cable. The corrosion area was located was approx. 15" aft of the bellcrank attachment, under the port-side, aft cockpit flooring -- *very* difficult to get to. It would appear...

How long for thermals to start working after rain? by Bruno[_2_]
I am looking out the window of my office in Salt Lake City, Utah right now to rain falling. Tomorrow is expected to be in the mid to upper 60's and sunny with fairly low humidity. Might be a decent soaring day. How long does it take the ground to dry up enough after rain for thermal soaring...

I appreciate the responses. But just to keep these posts from wandering off into "buying your first glider" territory: 1) I've already owned 2 gliders. 2) The DG has a mid-80's metal-top Cobra trailer. The LS has a late-80's/early-90's fiberglass Komet trailer. Slight nod goes to the Komet,...

Bmapper Map Capture by Dave White
I've tried several times to capture a map of north Texas from SeeYou by carefully following the directions contained in Bmapper. However, all I get is a blank screen in Bmapper when I select what appears to be a successfully selected area map. I think the instructions in Bmapper may be...

Nice flying day in New England Tuesday by Dave Nadler
Attempted 750km. Possibly could have done it if I continued south past Mansfield towards Plymouth for the last turnpoint... See ya, Dave "YO electric" Well, it wasn't quite as good a day as we hoped. As I thought, the early high cloud presaged overdevelopment. Launched first, shut motor down at...

If you fly near a Part 93 Special Air Traffic Rules area that is on your sectional but not in your digital airspace file(s), please let...
