fcst24 alternative to XCSoar? by son_of_flubber
Win Pilot is overlaying fcst24 data in their moving map app. fcst24 looks interesting even without Win Pilot. Modest subscription fee. Is anyone in the USA using fcst24 for soaring? www.fcst24.com

Air space file for India - Oudie by Thomas Van de Velde
Out of curiosity: Where would you be flying in India? While I've noticed great conditions for soaring, I haven't seen much private aviation activity, let alone glider flying. Thanks, Thomas

After a time, Bernie Carris decided he was ready for a single seat glider and put him in the then new 1-26. He was the first "kid" to fly a 1-26. Recently I found out...
