One Man Rigger for Standard Cirrus with Eberle Trailer? by [email protected]
Because of the way the trailer opens, you have to walk the wingtip out so low that a standard one-man rigger doesn't work. Does anyone know of a one-man rigger that'll work for a Standard Cirrus and Eberle trailer? Thanks in advance! Chuck

Centrair - Pegase by [email protected]
There was a group for Pegase owners which unfortunately I can no longer find. Does anyone have a link to a parts list and an email for Centrair? I have managed to lose the emails from them when I replaced the trim spring. :(

Why are side sticks unpopular in sailplanes by J. Nieuwenhuize
Side sticks seem pretty popular in powered aircraft. Personally like them. In sailplanes they have the additional advantage of allowing either a smaller cockpit (less drag) or more room. Diana, HP18 and several older designs have them. Yet, they seem highly unpopular. Why would a well-designed...

Flight following for sailplane XC flights? by Paul Villinski
Does anyone ever request flight following during long cross-country flights, in order to have ATC provide separation and keep an eye out? Or is this a ridiculous idea, especially given that you'd have to keep listening all afternoon? Would controllers provide radar service, or just have a good...
