MacCready in the Mountains by JJ Sinclair
I fly a lot in the mountains and find MacCready speed-to-fly information, completely worthless. Let me explain; Before crossing a ridge, I will fly slower (below MC), so that I'm assured of making the next ridge. After crossing the ridge, I may fly faster than MacCready. If I set the proper MC...

Cleaning TE probe - is this a good idea ? by JJ Sinclair
Good luck on getting high enough, this time of year, to generate enough pressure to dislodge the pesky little critters. Seriously, I have used an air bottle with about 50 psi in it to blow out the TE probe hole. Give it very short bursts, like sssttt, then wait and hit her...

1-26 chase 1-26 movie.... where can I get it? by The Stick and Rudder
Hello fellow glider/sailplane pilots... many years ago I had the opportunity to see a movie that featured two 1-26's chasing each other around the sky, down a mountain-side, thermalling, etc. I have looked for a copy of this movie a few times but have never been able to find it, save one time and...

perfect thermals by Mike Stramba
.... don't exist in the real world.. most (all) of the time, ya I know. But I'm trying to get a "picture" in my mind of what is happening in the sky. So, a hypothetical situation : Pretend you are designing an "ideal thermal generation field" that's 100 square miles in size. The terrain is...

Up, up and away ... by Bill Gribble
Since July, when I cashed in a "trial lesson" voucher at a gliding club in the Black Mountains of Wales and had my first experience of gliding, I've been lurking here but otherwise stranded on the ground staring wistfully at the sky. I'd warned my wife continually of what she was in danger of...

Sailplane Rides in northern NH? by Rich Carreiro
Hello. I was wondering if there are any good places to take a paid sailplane ride in the White Mountains region. This is for a birthday present. I've done some googling and have discovered there is a glider field in Franconia, NH and another one in Gorham, NH. I've also run...

Cobratrailer&brakes by Greg Arnold
I think the brakes are designed so they don't work when the wheels are turning backwards. So be careful about parking the trailer when the tongue is aiming uphill. "Udo Rumpf" wrote in message ... What is the mechanism to prevent the breaks...

High Speed Passes & the FAA by JJ Sinclair
Isn't there an FAR that says aviators will not fly below 500 feet, if over people, places or things, unless they are in the act of landing? This question was asked by a pilots wife/crew at a nationals. Her motorhome was located on a permanently closed runway about 500 feet from the active runway....

Newbie WinPilot Question by Waduino
I have a portable GPS and am wondering about getting an iPaq to run WinPilot, driven by the GPS. I'm wondering how complete the WinPilot database of strips and airspace would be for Canada, and in particular Southern Ontario. Can anyone help?

Alternative to 500-foot/1-mile rule by Andy Blackburn
So here's a different idea: What if, in instances where we are using a 1 mile cylinder for the finish, instead of putting in a hard deck of 500', we make it so the scoring program can calculate TOTAL ENERGY for each glider at the one mile point (this should be relatively easy to do). The idea...

Contest Numbers/Letters by Ken Kochanski
I can remember how enjoyable it was to paint my wing numbers on my first 15 ship. It was kind of a right of passage. Taking them off and repainting again was not so much fun ... for as we all know, the letters have to be right side up when you viewed from the ground as you approach the gate i.e....
