Data Plate Exemption Letter by Steve Bralla
SSA faxed me a copy of the Data Plate Exemption Letter. (The pdf file shows as damaged when I tried to download it off the SSA web site.) When I read the letter, it expired last year (October 30, 2002). Where can I get a current copy? Thanks, Steve

Racing Survey and 500 foot rule by Tom Seim
I just submitted my survey (hey, I've got a couple of days to spare). I recommended that the 500 foot finish rule (the question regarding this rule just asked whether you or not you supported it) be modified to a less Draconian version. My version is a penalty of a point per foot (come in at 400...

1 Hz NMEA-logfiles wanted from real soaring flights by Andrea Schlapbach
I am looking for NMEA-logfiles from real soaring flights with original 1 Hz NMEA output, being interested in the coordinates, track and ground speed. IGC-files are not sufficient because calculating track / speed as well interpolating track / speed / coordinates out from a 0.25 Hz IGC-file results...

Sad News by JohnD
I sadly report that Hans Langer, the leader of the Southern California Safari Group, died yesterday in a glider accident in Lone Pine. God rest his soul. ALWAYS remember to prepare properly (positive control checks EVERY flight), always know your emergency procedures, and fly safely.

Tost springs by Lord Struthers
they're tough, the line snaped at the ring about 600 AGL, I nursed it to the ridge and was able to work the disorganized thermals from there. Later, when I landed I got out, pulled the release on the 103, pulled out the ring and told the wrench, here's a present for ya. Rich

Am I insured? by JJ Sinclair
Just checked my policy and it said a number of things about my pilot license, but nothing specifically about not breaking FAR's. It said my pilot license must not be suspended or revoked and that I must be current. This would include a biannual and those 3 takeoffs and landings within the last 90...

Here's One for KS by Chris OCallaghan
Karl, Playing verbal tennis with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Hamlet says: "I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw." Most Shakespeare scholars get hung up on "handsaw," finding the hardware reference a non-sequitor. But later in the play,...

P-124 Aviator Emergency Parachute--Comments wanted by Ian Spence
The P-124 Aviator Emergency Parachute seems appealing because of its low descent rate and rapid opening time. Since its design is more like a sport canopy than a regular round emergency canopy I wonder if anyone can speak authoritatively to its use by glider pilots who have never jumped any kind of...
