Need glider towed from Boulder, CO to Richmond, VA by Chris Snyder
Is anyone looking for a tow "job" heading East? If no takers, any contacts/suggestions/lessons learned would also be appreciated - soaringvirginia at gmail dot com. I'm considering making this into a road trip, but would rather spend the time flying in CO, than driving through KY. Thanks, Chris

Tape the pitot/static system during storage? by [email protected]
Hi all. From advice from another soaring pilot, I've been taping my pitot/static inlets with red electrical tape when I store my glider. This is done to keep bugs out during storage. I started wondering if changes in air pressure could cause the airspeed and/or altimeter and/or vario...

Rigger who will pack a 20 year old chute? by [email protected]
OK, I understand the various interpretations of the "20 year life limit," but we don't have a rigger locally that will touch a 20 year old chute. So, apparently there are riggers that WILL offer this service. Can you lucky folks who know who they are provide some contact information? I would be...

ADSB out in tow planes by Charles Longley
One of our Pawnees has an ADSB out transponder now. (Evergreen Soaring) We’ve had glider pilots we’re towing that have FLARM ask us to turn off our transponder. We’ve told the glider pilots to turn their FLARM down or off. My recommendation is to either have a switch for your FLARM or know...

Oxygen refilling hazards by [email protected]
Another thread mentioned hazards while refilling O2 systems, and I think the subject is serious enough to warrant its own independent thread. A few years ago, a visiting pilot came into my shop, saying his Oxygen transfill line was leaking. (He carries his own cylinder for refills.) I inspected...

Digital altimeters by [email protected]
Tried of the 57mm Winter altimeter being too inaccurate even after being re-calibrated. Being EXPERIMENTAL, going to look into digital. Going to look at MGL Vega ASV-1 first as it displays altitude and airspeed. http://www.mglavionics.com/html/vega_color_singles.html Anyone had experience with...

1202 Transponder Squawk Code - In a Tow Plane? by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
Just wondering about something. Those of us with transponders in our gliders squawk 1202. Hurrah for our unique code. As I understand it other VFR aircraft with transponders typically squawk 1200. I would assume that at many gliderports few of the gliders have a transponder due to the cost...

Pawnee by Charles Longley
I am not sure who is the SGC ship captain on the Pawnee. I flew it the other day to help out Duane. Is that a FLARM on top of the instrument panel? If so how does it work? Scott was asking me about a good source for Pawnee parts. My first choice is Univair then Johnston Aircraft in California.

Grob G103 canopy transparencies made in the USA by Bob Kuykendall
I'm considering tooling up to make replacement canopy transparencies for existing sailplanes, or at least to have them made for me. I've seen a few requests for G103 canopies, so I thought I'd start there. What I am thinking of is precision stretch-formed transparencies made over internal mandrels...
