Sailplane Rides in northern NH? by Rich Carreiro

Cobratrailer&brakes by Greg Arnold
I think the brakes are designed so they don't work when the wheels are turning backwards. So be careful about parking the trailer when the tongue is aiming uphill. "Udo Rumpf" wrote in message ... What is the mechanism to prevent the breaks...

High Speed Passes & the FAA by JJ Sinclair
Isn't there an FAR that says aviators will not fly below 500 feet, if over people, places or things, unless they are in the act of landing? This question was asked by a pilots wife/crew at a nationals. Her motorhome was located on a permanently closed runway about 500 feet from the active runway....

Newbie WinPilot Question by Waduino
I have a portable GPS and am wondering about getting an iPaq to run WinPilot, driven by the GPS. I'm wondering how complete the WinPilot database of strips and airspace would be for Canada, and in particular Southern Ontario. Can anyone help?

Alternative to 500-foot/1-mile rule by Andy Blackburn
So here's a different idea: What if, in instances where we are using a 1 mile cylinder for the finish, instead of putting in a hard deck of 500', we make it so the scoring program can calculate TOTAL ENERGY for each glider at the one mile point (this should be relatively easy to do). The idea...

Contest Numbers/Letters by Ken Kochanski
I can remember how enjoyable it was to paint my wing numbers on my first 15 ship. It was kind of a right of passage. Taking them off and repainting again was not so much fun ... for as we all know, the letters have to be right side up when you viewed from the ground as you approach the gate i.e....
