Typical glider service lives? by [email protected]
I noticed the SZD-55 has a service life of only 3,000 hrs with a possible 1,500 hr extension. Is this typical of other modern ships like the Discus, Ventus, LS, DG series etc??

Contest Wait list by [email protected]

My club just got word that a solar farm is being proposed to be built about 1 mile directly off the west end of our runway 9-27. The zoning board meeting is tomorrow which I plan on attending. Aside from this re-use of good farm land (and a close land out spot) is there a downside to having a...

What is the best point to jack up a Cobra Trailer ? by [email protected]
I changed a wheel in my Cobra trailer with the glider inside. I located the Jack just under the corner between the bottom and side wall, next to the fender. Looked flimsy, but held fine, no bending of wall or edge. Was I lucky or is this the right place to do it ? Dan

2019 XC & Jr Development Camps by [email protected]
Looking at the SSA on-line calendar I do not see any XC or Jr development camps scheduled for 2019. To grow our XC ranks and our Jr's we really need to have these type of events more often - like twice a year (East & West). I'm thinking of organizing a camp for 2019 that would be geared to...

Sage vario repair - Williams Soaring Unable by [email protected]
My club is trying to get a Sage vario repaired. We sent it to Williams Soaring last winter but they do not have a tech right now so it is just sitting there. They have not been able to give an answer of when they might be able to start fixing it. Any other places in the world that do repairs?
