Alternative loggers and IGC rule changes by tango4
There is another thread on RAS proposing a change to the "once only" rule. Other threads have discussed the use of COTS loggers. I'd like to see a subdivision of loggers available that do not support barometric pressure sensors. This could be implemented quite simply by having a clause that...

Matt-Take a marketing class please by Stewart Kissel
The ships you are promoting may very well be something the soaring community needs. The tone and style in your posts do not contribute to there acceptance IMHO. If they do everything as well as you say, they will be accepted without the brow-beating.

IFR in motorglider, or any glider by Jim Culp
First, read the Glider aircraft Airworthiness Certificate, and its Operating Limitations. Do all USA airworthiness certificated gliders have operating limitation of Day VFR ?

"10km / only once" amendment by K.P. Termaat
Thanks to people like Ian, Robert, Herbert, Jack, Ruud, Janos and other respectable guys, I am very much convinced now that it cannot be that an excellent 1000 km performance is japordized by an FAI rule of which the true intention has been fulfilled in a very convincing way. I am talking again...

'New' Issue of 'SOARING' by Ray Lovinggood
I just received my 'new' issue of 'SOARING'. Today is 29 JUN 04. The issue I received is the April, 2004 issue. Did anyone else get the April issue instead of the July issue? Just wondering. I've e-mailed the SSA and requested a July issue.

Cobra jack warning by Andy Durbin
If you have a new Cobra trailer you may wish to inspect your tongue jack. The handle is fixed to the worm stem by means of a roll pin. If the roll pin comes out the handle falls off and the inside of the jack, including the wheel, will fall out of the outer casing and contact the road. I...

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 competitions for one reason only: they do not...

ELT or EPIRB by Mal
The reason I carry a EPIRB in my parachute strap is I have cleaned up a mid air of two gliders. Fact not much was left of the fuslage after the wings came off any ELB would have been dust like the 3/4 of the front part of the fuselage we could not find, we found fibers. The most recognised part...

Who Discovered Thermals? by Robert de León
I'm prepping for a presentation and was wondering: who was the first to actually thermal. I assume that early glider pilots noted soaring birds and thought "there must be rising air where they're turning and climbing." I've read a few references as to WHEN it was achieved by glider pilots (but not...

Parowan Hotels by BPattonsoa
Looks like the Sports next year is going to be sold out. So for those of us who haven't been, how about some rating on the Hotels in the area. Karl put up a list on the website, but some of those looked "interesting". Bruce Patton

Parowan Hotels / Soaring info by Milton Hare
To future Parowan visitors, I stayed at the Cedar Breaks Lodge in Brian Head for three nights last week (I flew a day with Karl during the Region 9 contest and toured Bryce/Zion on the ground). It's a 20 minute drive up a wide two-lane highway from the field and is at 9,500 feet - stays cool...
