Pawnee PA25 Lead (Pb) contamination by [email protected]
Has anyone ever dealt with lead (Pb) issues in the cockpit of a Pawnee? I recently did a 3M lead test on the surfaces in the cockpit and found high lead readings. I suspect it is related to 100LL fumes coming into the cockpit around the floor in fore of the rudder pedals.

Gliding made the Drudge Report both yesterday and today! by [email protected]
Airbus's Perlan 2 project is getting a lot of notice right now with Drudge picking up the story. I am not sure we have ever seen a glider story on one of the largest news sites like this before. Cool! http://screencast.com/t/eUKQQlhNxr29 Bruno - B4

FAA proposes AD on Schempp-Hirth Discus 2 and Ventus 2 by Mark628CA
Proposed AD addresses an issue with the airbrakes on S-H Discus 2a, 2b, 2c, 2ctx and Ventus 2a, 2b. Doesn't look unreasonable- an inspection and possible parts upgrade to address a possible problem with airbrake retraction. Comment period is still...

PEWE Remote Switch Box for Cambridge L-Nav and Gps-Nav by John Carlyle
My "new" 1999 LS8 glider came equipped with a remote stick having 7 push buttons, that control a Cambridge L-Nav and Gps-Nav. The stick buttons go through a PEWE Remote Switch Box, using the typical Cambridge telephone connectors, then outputs go to the L-Nav and Gps-Nav. Unfortunately no manual...

XC Skies out of business? by Mike the Strike
I have received several reports from soaring pilots that XC Skies is not renewing subscriptions, even after payments have been made. Attempts to contact the company by e-mail have been fruitless. The web site appears to be up and functioning, but has not been updated since 2010. Is Xc SKies...

Eric June's accident by [email protected]
I just thought I'd let everyone know in this thread, that Eric passed away in January 2016. I've been trying to find friends, as information has been rather sparce. I'm not precisely sure of the events of his passing, but it appears related to his fight against bipolar and depression. He was a...

Is there a trick for making the life tracker on the SSA website work? I tried to follow the Perry contest but was only able to get it to work on my iPhone but not on my laptop. Only got a blank screen there. I am using Chrome as a browser and Windoze 7 Professional. Uli

cold weather flying by ND
Hi all, My thread is either 8 months too late, or three months too early depending on how you look at it. I'm looking for opinions on gear for cold weather flying, and high altitude flying, particularly as it relates to footwear. I'm trying to find a pair of boots which are warm and insulated,...

Glide ratio with full brakes and side slip by [email protected]
I was wondering if anyone had an idea of what sort of glide ratio you get with full brakes and slide slip? An instructor used this to correct a very high approach but I was curious what the side slip adds to the descent rate.
