Spin Training by JJ Sinclair
Bill Dean, The tone of the spin discussion has taken a rather harsh turn, lately. I may be responsible for some of it, because I allowad myself to be sucked into a discussion of gun control, socialized medicine, slavery and Oh yes, spins. The harsh tone was not my intention and my posts have been...

Super Dimona Motorglider in Soaring magazine feb 2004 by Mark James Boyd
Interesting article. Too bad (for US pilots) it uses the "despised in the US" rotax engine. But this is a real favorite in Europe, I'm told. CFR 61.69(a)(1) requires tow pilots to "Holds at least a private pilot certificate with a category rating for powered aircraft." Perhaps the last 7 words...

1-34 Rudder by DGRTEK
Serious question. I've spoken to several pilots regarding the handling characteristics of the 1-34, and the general comment was that the Rudder could have been a bit more effective. My question is, Has anyone tried to modify the rudder to be more effective? What would be the result of adding a...

Minden's filling up! by JJ Sinclair
We got 20 contestants signed up with a maximum of 40, due to limited parking on the east side. Preferential cut off date, 7 April. BTW, Parowan is full (50) with 19 that won't get in. Come on over to Minden, but do it before we fill up also. No sports class, therefore NO reverse seeding at Minden....

Puchaz spin - now wearing 'chutes by Bill Daniels
The discussion of wearing parachutes is an interesting one. Parachutes are cheap insurance and, when one is needed, nothing else will quite do the job. So, why aren't they universally worn? In a word, weight. The available two seaters, for the most part, have weight limitations that almost...

90 Degree turn while slipping by ISoar
I can't find anything in my books about how to make a 90 degree turn (e.g., downwind to base) while in a full slip, but maybe that's because it's so obvious. (Given my limited # hours, just because something seems obvious to me doesn't mean I'm not going to check it out.) I figure I'll turn with...
