JS-1C vs EB 29 ASH31 by [email protected]
Why is it that the JS-1C seem to be the open class ship? One would think the 3 choices of wing span for the EB-29 and the extra wing span would make this the best hands down open ship. I noticed that the JS-1C-18 is equal to the ASG-29-18. One would think the ASH-31 with the same outer tips as...

Thinking the same thing. Hidden Valley is a few miles east of Middletown so hopefully they will be OK.

Looking for a set of ASK-21 ballast weights by kirk.stant
Our club (SLSA) has an ASK-21 that did not come with any front cockpit ballast weights (the lead triangles, and the 2 "bolts" that hold them in place under the pilot's knees). If anyone knows of a set lying around unused, please let me know. Thanks in advance, Kirk 66

PW6 front seat spoiler guiding rod by Segelflieger
Has anyone in the soaring world experienced a PW6 spoiler's guiding rod detaching from the fuselage wall in the front seat? Is anyone still representing these gliders in the US? Do they manufacture them still? There are some ADs on PW5/6 rod attachments, what else? Why can't I find any recent...

Opposite Direction Landing Operations - Efficiency? Geography? by LBC
A question for all of you who fly various places around the US and world- My question is regarding tow operations where launching/landing gliders use one runway end (likely, the end heading into the wind), and the landing towplane uses the opposing runway direction (likely, landing downwind.) If...

How do we inspire pilots to truly take up cross country soaring ? by Sean Fidler
From another thread recently, thought it might be a good topic to paw around with everyone... For me, soaring is great fun. I've been doing it consistently for about 5 years now. I've met a bunch of amazing, great, kind people and have learned a tremendous amount about the sport (light years...

Alfonso Jurado by Echo
Good Morning, I am entering my 4th year as the 3rd owner of ASW20 #20463, better known as Alfonso's 20. I grew up soaring in New Castle, VA, and saw Alfonso a few times but never really knew him. It is my understanding that he has bad dementia now. I know the former Miami gliderport was his...

C-182 towplane by [email protected]
Good used Pawnee tugs are getting rare. Actually, very rare. What else is there that isn't 50+ years old? There is a C-182 at Nephi hauling skydivers which has Wing-X wing-tip extensions which increase its load capacity, rate-of-climb and ceiling. It is said this also makes a C-182 into a good...
