What canopy adhesive to use? by LongJourney
I've done a search in both RAS and on the web but I'm not finding the information I'm looking for. I'm restoring a 1963 S Austria and one of the previous owners used what I think is Sikaflex to bond the canopy glass to the metal canopy frame. It's now separating badly. What should I use to bond the...

Cobra Trailer Wiring Presentation Available for Download by OHM Ω http://aviation.derosaweb.net
I finally purchased a glider that came with a Cobra trailer last year (remember the old adage?). The trailer came with a cobbled together vehicle connection and the original incandescent lighting. So I set about "correcting" this. I really can't help myself to not try to "improve" everything...

ASW27B prices falling by [email protected]
There are 3 nice ASW27's for sale, all at reduced prices in the Wings and Wheels website. We 3 owners are mystified at the seeming lack of interest in this ship. Two of us are no longer flying thanks to Father Time and we're throwing in lots of soaring related "goodies" with your...

Jantar Standard Canopy by jmarc
Is that possible to buy somewhere only the plastic part of the Jantar canopy? I should probably take a look at the "ceebaileys" like the previous post said for the Blanik. But I think it will not be available that way. So I post here to know if anybody have very good condition Jantar canopy...

New House Thermal by [email protected]
The Treasure Coast Soaring Club will soon have a new house thermal. Florida Power And Light is in the process of building a 400 acre solar power plant within 3/4 mile from our airport. Heat from this type of farm should make for a great house thermal. Anyone out there with experience flying over...

Flying during a Solar Eclipse by AS
Ok - here is a question for the FAR experts: On August 21, there will be a total solar eclipse occurring - among other places - over South Carolina. The duration of the total eclipse is around 2min 35 seconds. Is this considered night time? Can I fly a glider under VFR-daytime rules during this...
