Long Term Motorglider Launch costs by Nick Kennedy[_3_]
Several years ago I was helping Wilf Krueger K2 strap into his DG 800B motorglider. He looks up at me and says "here goes the most expensive tow I'll ever buy" He smiles and takes off. I'm curious from those in the know, how much did that launch really cost him? Over say 25 flights a year over 10...

Shifting CG In-Flight by Duster[_2_]
A friend has installed a system in his home-built glider that enables shifting the CG position forward during higher cruise speeds (e.g., between lift, final glide, etc.). It uses two water reservoirs whose content can be transferred using a 12v pump. This is done, ostensibly, to reduce...

1981 Cobra trailer gas struts by David Cleveland
I have a 1981 Cobra trailer designed for a single seat glider. The trailer design is of the type that has the struts located on the outside of the trailer, with an aluminum top.

Time for a new US Schempp-Hirth Rep? by [email protected]
Unfair to do this on a forum perhaps but I think it's that bad. Wondering if anyone else with an older SH model is feeling the same. I have not been able to get parts for my glider. I will not go into exactly what I have and have not done to make it happen because I think I've done more than what...

15 Hour Wonders by Bob Youngblood
The FAA has made it possible for glider plots with very limited time to acquire a CFIG rating with only 15 hours of total glider time. This is truly an accident waiting to happen, what could a glider pilot actually know with such limited time? What do you think?
