Again! by [email protected]
The FAA has just informed us that northern NJ will once again be blessed with the weekend golfing presence of President Trump. Lucky us. This means that for the last eight weekends, we have had ONE weekend when we were allowed to fly. Last year Trump's favored golf club in Florida opened for the...

Libelle Canopy question for Gram Drinkell by [email protected]
Kinda weird no reply? What's going on? I'd like to have the contact for this transparencies manufacturer. Maybe you're holding back in hopes that I'll take on the project of forming one on my own?

SSA "Where to Fly" Map by Giaco
Is the SSA's "Where to fly" map updated regularly? There seem to be a number of clubs that are shown on the site with old and bad links and no recent history on google, at least in the last few years.... Specifically, i was trying to figure out if Iroquois soaring Association or Saratoga Soaring...

Discus 2 Winglets by Ross[_3_]
I am on the hunt for a set of winglets that look like this: http://www.rcawsey.co.uk/n114tw.jpg I know Heinz made them, and I know there aren’t many about so if anyone would part with them I would be really happy I would also consider paying to have them scanned to make a mold Cheers

Looking for a Schweizer ballast box by [email protected]
Our club bought a 1-26 and it came without the ballast arrangement for lightweight pilots. So we are looking for such, at least the box that holds the ballast (we have the "brick" itself available in our 2-33, presumably the same). Anybody got that part sitting around from a wrecked 1-26 or 2-33?

Cobra trailer brake heating up by Eric Greenwell[_4_]
I adjusted the brakes on my Cobra trailer according to the directions from Cobra. On the first test drive, the right brake drum got very hot in a few miles (about 240 deg F); the left brake drum got up to about 125 deg F. Neither drum seems to be dragging when I jack up the wheel and spin it. I...

FREE CHECKRIDES at Marfa, Texas 2017-2018 by Burt Compton - Marfa Gliders, west Texas
Another "Rusty Pilot" has polished up their skills with me at Marfa. Like polishing the tarnish off of your mother's silverware, the renewed shine is worth the effort. Because it was there all along.
