PW-5 and NHRA Pro Stock Trucks........ by Scott Correa
The lack of respect for the PW-5 has little to do with looks or performance. It shares the same fate as NHRA Pro Stock Trucks do. A great cost saving idea that was abandoned by the promoter after they changed their minds on how good an idea it was. So when the FAI didn't put World Class in...

Serusly, maybe Dr. Jack can log in with his forecast of when he thinks real-time moving map cockpit displays of current thermals, or (let's not be unreasonable here) 1-hr old thermals will be available.

121.5 & Airliners by Nolaminar
The only time that 121.5 is monitored is over the ocean or very remote areas. While I can't speak for ALL Carriers, I am pretty sure that none listen in on 121.5 while over the continental US. Bob Gaines Retired Delta

What determines LNAV "circling mode"? by Jack
I have been trying to figure out what is happening with my Cambridge LNAV since in several flights "speed-to-fly" bars have never appeared, even in a long continuous glide straight at the goal indicated by the connected Cambridge GPS.

Gliders for the larger pilot by Steve Hopkins
Do any American gliders cater for the larger glider pilot? Over on this side of the pond European 'standards' have seen the death of diversity and now our gliders only cater for the 'euro-standard-pilot'. Looking for something big and comfortable with reasonable performance.
