The computer it's on is not one purchased at a retail store front outlet. It was purpose built and flew/flies X-plane just dandy with no problems whatsoever. Two bridged...

Scoring when abandoning a contest turnpoint by [email protected]
Hey all. I somehow got the idea that there was strategy involved to maximize score on contest flights where one decides not to continue to a turnpoint. But I don't see anything in the rules other than incomplete tasks essentially being scored as a landout. Am I missing something? Good to make it...

Why have the costs risen so high? I was a loyal customer for over 10 years to a particular insurance company, whom informed me I was not allowed to allow young pilots to fly my glider. They have now declined me from their insurance cover. I have tried another broker, but their charges are...

Are areas of sink modeled well in Condor2? by Charles Ethridge
Question for those of you who fly with Oudie and Condor2: While sink near thermals seem to be modeled well in Condor2, some people in our club do not think that Condor models areas of sink outside of thermals (between clouds) very well. In other words, when they fly cross-country in real life...

Tropics Are Heating Up. by Bob Youngblood
As we get closer to August the tropics are showing those typical late summer cyclone development possibilities. There is one on the horizon for early Sunday, so I guess it is time to put the gliders in the box and store on a secure location. Our club will be securing all gliders and I will take the...
