Mobile SeeYou & Winpilot by Ian Molesworth
I find it quite surprising that quite a few people posting to the MCU forum are passing comments about dropping WinPilot in favour of MCU. From what I gather these people already own a very capable moving map and final glide calculation package in WinPilot and most will have laid out...

HELP. I need a TRUE story for television by Monday by John Shelton
Fellow soarists, I did not make myself clear. My apologies. The production company is not making a slasher flick. It is trying to find EXPEDITIONS with an element of danger that might include a survival segment. In soaring, we have plenty of possible danger. These guys are seeking expeditions....

New ASK-21 movie by Tlewis95
Hi My dad/CFIG, Curt Lewis, took some video as I was flying Windy City Soaring Association's ASK-21 at Hinckley, IL. I edited it and added some Cheap Trick music on to it and it turned out quite nice in my opinion. http://www.windycitysoaring.com/ASK21%20Flight%20Lesson1.wmv Trace Lewis

Soaring poster in movie by John H. Campbell
Saw the interesting flick "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind' yesterday. In one scene, I think in the offices of the mind-eraser company Lacuna, there is a soaring poster in the background. Looked like an overhead shot of an ASK-21.

First Arrival at Marfa Wave Camp by Burt Compton
First Arrival at the Marfa Wave Camp. A car with a glider trailer slowly approached my "Marfa Gliders" hangar, thankfully creating very little dust. I thought "here is someone who knows how to drive on an airport!" Noticing the New York vehicle tags, I greeted the driver and lady passenger with...

Winching-Cable danger by Andy Davey
When I drove winches for the air cadets, we often had problems with bits of cable flying about in the cab. On the old Eagle winches there are 2 drums, one of which is directly in front of the driver. If the cable 'threw a loop' then it would rattle against the totally inadequate metal grille that...

Help- was aktywni polscy szybownicy. by Stanislaw Kochanowski
Hi Dave (Martin), My compliments to Jan Szladowski (whom I know) and your very good self. 'Kwadrat', in Polish, is a 'square' - as in the geometrical figure with four, equal, sides. In the gliding context, it refers to the launch point.
