Changing the way we fly

Hang gliders are most visible to other traffic when a wing is pitched up. In addition to vigilence, perhaps we could form the habit of pitching a wing up to say 45 degrees at the exit of a thermal, or when leaving one way point for the next.

Nose cone problem

Inquiring Newbies want to know! Was it partially detached, fully detached, flapping in the wind above the glider, playing poker, out shopping with the wife and kids, what? My Falcon 3 has a nose cone as well, so any information you can share is relevant and appreciated. Note to F3 owners; if you fai...

the 2 days are mandatory for sign off

I just spoke to Hungary Joe. You must complete ground school and the 3 flights to get signed off. This will take both days. In case of inclement weather, the clinic will go next week end.

I made the SHGA News Blast!

Such an honor bestowed on such a newbie pilot.

I was able to pick up my iPod from Surfer Bob the very night that I discoverd the post. Thanks very much to Bob for picking it up, and for being such a decent person. It's nice to know that we fly with such good people in our midst.

Nano found! thanks to Surfer Bob

I thought I lost the Nano in flight, so never thought to search the lost and found. Then this evening, some four months later... what do you know? And to top it off, Surfer Bob is my neighbor out here in Manhattan Beach!

Is it possible to get snubbed by a doll?

Very strange, but at the same time, its interesting to observe an aspect of the human psyche that I had never considered.

C'mon, the Haiku are nice

But who doesnt like a limmerick? There once was a man from Rangoon....etc. I'm new to hang gliding and this forum. Looking forward to the banter. Personally, I'm just glad Janyce is OK. Who else is going to challeng you guys on the mountain? By the way, the Haiku were good, but Flamejob gets my vote...
