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/

Does any country run competitions in the IGC Club Class? USA does not. We have the Sports Class, which allows any glider to enter, and another Sports Class (called, locally, the Club Class) which uses a restricted list of gliders that is different from the IGC Club Class list. In another thread,...

International Shipping (trailer axle) by T8
Trying to figure out a semi-economical way to get a Knott axle from Germany to NE USA. Convenient, fast, very expensive way has already been identified :-). No containers carrying gliders or trailers are known to be coming in next several months, so I think that option is out. UPS appears to...
