KA6E and Foka 4 comparable metal ships - Laister Nugget LP15 by Matthieu
Dear expert soaring pilots, What would be a nice metal equivalent of the KA6E or Foka 4? I am asking because those ships are 40+ years old now and I am concerned about the aging wood... Should I be concerned? Is there any relevant metal alternative to those ships? I would also be interested in...

JAR-22 should be accepted as Special Light Sport Aircraft standard by M B
I've been watching the Sport Pilot aircraft certification scene quite closely now, and as it fleshes out, I have some observations. The SLSA standards for airplane, weight shift, etc. which are published are hampering the development of SLSA for these categories due mostly to lack of familiarity.

Altimeter settings: QNH versus QFE by [email protected]
I have a question for you CFIG's out the I recently moved to a "flat" state from a "mountainous" state and noticed that every glider pilot I have met and flown with in the "flat" state sets his altimeter to zero (a QFE setting) instead of field elevation. Back in my old stomping grounds, all...

Since I reported the US dollar's drop against the Euro a few months ago, I am delighted to report a reversal. The US dollar is currently at 1.23 to the Euro and improving daily. A currency specialist tells me he expects a rate of 1.15 by year's end. Where it goes from there is anyone's guess,...
