Color Platforms for Top Hat/XCSoar by [email protected]
What color devices are pilots using for Top Hat/XCSoar? I'm running Top Hat on a Kobo Glo (large eink gray scale--great readability) and a Dell Streak 5 (smaller screen, color, acceptable readability). If the Dell were a little brighter and larger, it would be perfect. Options seem to range from...

Laister LP-49 TE and polar info by Jim Meade
I have a Laister LP-49 and am looking for a polar graph for it. I would also like to talk to anyone who has added a total energy probe to the vario on this glider. It has metal flight surfaces and a plastic body with solid bulkheads. Might be a trick to plumb the line from the vertical stab.

Club Procedures for Late Day XC Flights by Roy B.

Average time to solo a student by [email protected]
I'm a very experienced power pilot CFI & have soloed hundreds of airplane student pilots over the years. That said, I'm not as experienced as a CFIG. I soloed a new student this weekend. He flew three solo flights & did a spectacular job. He has no former flying experience so he wasn't the...

LXNAV Experience by Del Jensen
One week ago today I sent in a variometer to get a pressure sensor repaired. Today got notification of delivery two days from now. Soaring season saved. You can't beat that kind of service. Uros and his crew are stand up guys. No, I don't own stock in LXNAV, nor does any relation of mine work...

Need glider towed from Boulder, CO to Richmond, VA by Chris Snyder
Is anyone looking for a tow "job" heading East? If no takers, any contacts/suggestions/lessons learned would also be appreciated - soaringvirginia at gmail dot com. I'm considering making this into a road trip, but would rather spend the time flying in CO, than driving through KY. Thanks, Chris

Tape the pitot/static system during storage? by [email protected]
Hi all. From advice from another soaring pilot, I've been taping my pitot/static inlets with red electrical tape when I store my glider. This is done to keep bugs out during storage. I started wondering if changes in air pressure could cause the airspeed and/or altimeter and/or vario...

Rigger who will pack a 20 year old chute? by [email protected]
OK, I understand the various interpretations of the "20 year life limit," but we don't have a rigger locally that will touch a 20 year old chute. So, apparently there are riggers that WILL offer this service. Can you lucky folks who know who they are provide some contact information? I would be...

ADSB out in tow planes by Charles Longley
One of our Pawnees has an ADSB out transponder now. (Evergreen Soaring) We’ve had glider pilots we’re towing that have FLARM ask us to turn off our transponder. We’ve told the glider pilots to turn their FLARM down or off. My recommendation is to either have a switch for your FLARM or know...

Oxygen refilling hazards by [email protected]
Another thread mentioned hazards while refilling O2 systems, and I think the subject is serious enough to warrant its own independent thread. A few years ago, a visiting pilot came into my shop, saying his Oxygen transfill line was leaking. (He carries his own cylinder for refills.) I inspected...
