Mandatory Radios by JJ Sinclair
The majority of clubs and FBO's in Region 11 have gone to a mandatory radio policy after the recent midair where the tow plane and glider collided turning final. The tow plane was not radio equipped and therefore didn't know (hear) that the glider was turning final from the other direction. That...

Remove layer of cloth/Gelcoat by glider[_2_]
I know it can be done. On an ASW-15, the first layer of cloth was pulled off the wings and a fresh layer of cloth was applied. It worked out well. The naked surface is rough enough to allow good bond of new layer. GA

Typical glider & trailer total weight? by Roger Worden[_2_]
What would you say is a typical or average glider trailer weight? I know, "it depends"... but what is typical? I'm shopping for a new vehicle and will buy one that I could use if I crew for someone or to move our club gliders around. Gliders that I have moved around range from 450 to 850 pounds. I...

boulder mid=air by None[_2_]
"Having the "right of way" only works if the other pilot see's you. He can't "yield" to what he does not see." Of course! My comment was directed, through the readers, to those who would say that having gliders in the air is the problem. Having the right-of-way didn't help the tow pilot, maybe...

Cirrus collides with Glider/Towplane by Jody
This doesn't look good for our sport. It seems that the Cirrus hit the towline and the towplane and Cirrus went down despite the ballistic chute on the Cirrus. The glider released and landed safely. But guess where the blame will...

thermal detector? by Robin
I've imagined that birds detect thermals in part with superior vision. They can see the little bits of stuff in the air that show motion. Now it looks like America's Cup sailors will be lighting up the little bits with lasers. http://www.catchthewindinc.com/
