Lubricant for spar pins by Jonathan St. Cloud
Did a search of RAS and all the threads were quite old, so I thought I would ask what lubricant do you use when assembling your glider? I have noticed that the lube that comes with Schleicher gliders seems to have more friction and lube. Of course there is the old standby of white lithium, but...

1000km flights by [email protected]
On 30 December 2017, there were 34 flights of over 1000km posted onto the OLC. These were all in Namibia and South Africa. What is the record number of +1000km flights done in a single day? I would imagine there could have been more flights done because not everyone posts their flights on OLC.

Cessna Citation N238JP Runway Incursion at KUDD by [email protected]
A snotty Citation driver tries to blame me for HIS runway incursion during my takeoff. Unfortunately, I turned on the cam just after making my call and crossing the runway hold line to take the active (you can see my fingers on the cam in the opening frames). He claims that I never made a call, but...

I have been on the search for Dick Johnson's flight test PDFs of the HP304CZ, Discus 2 and the Duo Discus but unable to find them so far. Would anyone from the states be willing to share them? They are not easy to find when you live in Europe :(

Books? by Entelin
It's winter here and I figure I should spend some of the time furthering my book knowledge of soaring. I fly XC and compete, but in hanggliders not sailplanes. I assume there are well regarded books from the sailplane perspective out there. I'm looking specifically for anything that gives me better...

Spot tracker renewal by glidergreg
I have had a Spot tracker since 2009 and have never had to use it in an emergency thankfully. Was considering on switching to In-Reach which can be activated for only when I do trips out west once each year. My basic spot charges had increased from around $165 with tracking option in 2009 to close...

Debunking Glider Spoiler Turns Causing Spin Thinking by [email protected]
Either a large majority of us are unaware that we are on the verge of death every time we adjust our spoilers while landing, or some people are being taught this and causing them to unnecessarily fear spoilers and using them to their full degree of helpfulness and effectiveness. Here's a video I...

Seminole Lake Gliderport had another accident. From what the pictures look like, the left wing of their Blanik L-23 was demolished from mid wing where it bent the leading edge all the way back to the spar. Not sure what to make of this, if it will be covered up, or will there be an NTSB report. ...
