Parowan Practice day Speeds by TomnKeyLargo
Practice day speeds ran from high 70's for standard, with MM winning the day. I don't recall the winner for sports, but it was in the mid 70's. The high 80"s was the winning speed for 15 Meter, and you only get one guess as to who. Remember this was just the practice day. Fly safe, Soar high,...

Duo Discus canopy problems by David Starer
I recently had the alarming experience of the canopy coming nearly fully open on a Duo Discus shortly after take-off on aerotow. Both my student (who was flying the glider at the time) and I grabbed the handles when the canopy was about 45 degrees open and managed to close it. However all efforts...

Learning to soar web site by Roger Worden
There used to be a wonderful web site which described the experiences of a student learning to soar at Aboyne in the U.K. It had a great diagram of a typical flight, with a couple of dozen links to pages explaining each phase of the learning process. The URL was http://www.miskin.demon.co.uk/ ...

wanna do a good thing? by MikeYankee
That one was spammed across just about every newsgroup in existence, including the news.admin.net-abuse.* groups. Not too clever. Mike Yankee (Address is munged to thwart spammers. To reply, delete everything after "com".)

Region 4 S: ELT Mandatory by Chris OCallaghan
I just received a note from Lanier Frantz stating that all competitors at R4S must have an ELT. I understand the reason for this decision, but I question whether it will have the intended effect. I have long been against mandatory ELT use in soaring comopetitions for one reason only: they do not...

ELT Mandatory ? by Jim Culp
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of gliding, Please consider carefully. What is our nature? Individual; or care from cradle to the grave? Equipment should be pilot's choice, with pilot weighing risks and outcome potentials. Further, if pilot does not return from a gliding flight let the contest...

New Castle ELT Requirement by Ed Byars
I'm glad to see the healthy discussion on ELTs. It's long overdue. New Castle. I conferred at length with Lanier (my long time friend and confidant) and urged him to make the ELT rule. I hope I was influential. I urged him to act dictatorially as owner of the airport. He has no authority to...

Marske Pioneer, 15 meter or Standard Class? by mat Redsell
On the Marske wing the elevator is on the trailing edge of the main wing but now that we have a moveable CG ( it acts like a trim) the elevator is now acting like a flap. With the weight all the way forward I can use up elevator to have negative flaps and take advantage of the drag bucket moving...

Club Class WGC online display by [email protected]
The VPOS system on the http://www.wgc2004.no/ site seems very disappointing compared with those used in previous WGCs, or am I missing something? I would expect 'Visual Position' to show a map but all I get is a list, if there are transmitters in selected gliders surely this is relatively...

Soaring advice by Marc
Having always been fascinated by flight and thermals from an early age(R/C soarers/flight sims user), I had the opportunity 7 years ago to do a 5-day gliding course at the beautiful Long Mynd Gliding club; needless to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. As luck would have it, on the...

Cambridge Instruments by Ian McPhee
People do not come much better than Gary K at Cambridge. Just talk to him on the phone and quietly he goes thru things with you. Regretfully the quality control of Martinsville Cambridge left a bit to be desired but it was real basic stuff which took 5 min to fix. Do not blame Gary for Martinsville...
