I am wondering how often a truck for towing a glider trailer might be an advantage? I have yet to buy my first glider, but of course and thinking that the next vehicle I purchase should be a good one to tow with (Incidentally, thinking of the GMC/Chevy Canyon/Colorado, with the 2.8L inline 4...

Promoting Soaring (Among Women) | Kudos MASA! by [email protected]
Many of us were deeply disappointed with a recent post on RAS with respect to women. I felt it was very counterproductive to the goals and desires of many people to promote soaring. Instead of engaging in that sad discussion, I reflected on some of my experiences surveying clubs in my region and...

I have a 1918 German barograph, photos are at the URL below. It appears complete but I do not know how to make it work. Apparently it has to be wound-up. I also have a photo of the underside of the metal tray, if you need to see that. https://www.aeroconservancy.com/flugzeug

Version 8 by Andrzej Kobus
How much flying have guys done with version 8? Any issues, is it safe to upgrade? Most of the time LXNav releases are of good quality, but I do remember one that gave me problems. There are some great features in this version, I just don't want to get surprised with problems in the early spring.

I got an older Anschau Komet trailer that needs some care and decided to repaint the entire top side, which is white painted fiberglass. What paint would you recommend for doing this?
