Excessive friction in the aiteron circuit in SZD-55 by Paul B
Hi I have recently acquired SZD-55. The glider was manufactured in 1996 and has some 450 hrs. As far as I can tell the glider was maintained very well by German workshop. Whilst I was aware that the 55 has quite a heavy stick, I have only flown one other, this one seems to require quite a...

Pressure breathing O2 regulator these days? by Bob Kuykendall
Back in the old days (you know, like the 1980s?), the standard pressure breathing O2 regulator for wave flying was the A14. They were (relatively) cheap and common, and pretty much all of the players like Bikle and Harris used them. Does anybody have a sense of what is being used these days? I...

US Rules change needed for devaluation of contest day by Tim Taylor
After the day at Moriarty earlier this year and Nephi yesterday for the 15M/Std Combined class the rules for how a day is devalued needs to be addressed.
