Centrair Pegase in the US by Hans Bodde
Hi, I've read a couple of scary messages about the Centrair Pegase having a max limit of 3000h because of a glitch in translations of manuals. Does this still hold true, and if yes... (here comes...) are these going to be just fine when they get back to an EASA certification? Kind...

iGlide by John Foster
I just recently downloaded the "lite" version to play around with, and so far it is OK. However, I'm curious if some of the features I would like in it are just things that are in the higher level version like the "advanced" or "pro" version. For instance, when I look at the flight log, it...

Check these 2 Czech pilots flying an EB 29R and the other a JS1C, with identical start and finish time. I can't compaere their traces. Did the long wing glider sacrifice to help the shorter wing glider ? Dan

Emailing contest flight log to scorer by [email protected]
From the cockpit, I want to transfer my flight log to my phone and email it to the contest scorer. If your IGC approved logger is Bluetooth equipped and it is paired to your phone, is it just a simple matter of downloading log to phone and emailing the file? Are there any "security" issues or 3rd...

Rescue Aid by Graham Drinkell[_2_]
I am working on a fluorescent pouch, comprising a helio-graph, hi intensity LED lamp with SOS function, thermal blankets and an EPIRB/mob phone pocket. Smoke flares cannot be used. This is a low profit safety product. I will produce some decent photos and costs in due course.

US Standard Class Nationals by Retting
Good lord, who invented this torturous sport. The only fun part was the line finish. So, here we go. A 300 mile assigned task that took us across Bush Ranch twice. The first leg 100 miles SW into a quarter headwind that took the mortal pilots a couple of hours followed by a right turn for a 60...
