Thanks, David. You’re a mensch.April 19, 2021 at 11:59 AM in reply to: Who’s in favor of having a launch and landing clinic? #12010
Yes. Like that. When I got back into flying, I went to the Santa Barbara training hill and had Willy video my launches and landings. He said I let the nose come up in my first two steps then brought it down. I couldn’t sense the nose going up. Had to see it on video to correct it. Lately, there’s been a number of sloppy launches at Crestline that could have ended badly. Some pilots are known for mushing off. Seeing themselves on video could help them correct the problem. Others have inconsistent landings. An instructor may be able to spot something very simple that they’re doing wrong.
I’d forget to unlock it.
The wheel and bearings used. Two bearings per wheel.

David, congratulations on winning Website of the Year.

Sunrise/sunset and gusts are great additions. Aesthetically, not liking the bottom of the graph. Too dark. To my eye, the background should be consistent above and below the graph lines, the way it is with the temperature. The dark shade adds an extra element that doesn’t serve a function.
Could be a good idea to add KEEP NOSE DOWN to the HOOK IN signs we see at launches.
Yes, I think that drawing stands out, too. It would be great to convert it or one like it into a large mural on a wall of the new shade structure … if there is a large wall on the shade structure.
What kind of railing would be required on the observation deck? How high?
I opt for the trailer, though the punji sticks in the foreground have to go.
The Parthenon is nice but it screams turbulence.
I’m against external speakers. You always have the option of listening to the chatter with earbuds. With external speakers, you’re forcing other pilots to listen to it whether they want to or not.
Since winds often turn west at the end of the afternoon, a roof height and design that creates the least turbulence should be the priority.
Time for Mario to drag out his brother’s old glider.

Synthetic grass, artificial turf is used on high school, college, municipal and professional athletic fields. Also in city parks and commercial installations. There’s a lot of it out there. At some point the stuff has to be replaced. I’m sure the used material would work for AJX. The entire LZ wouldn’t have to be covered. There’d be some work and expense involved putting it down. But the club could stop paying … what is it, $1800 a month for water. And no more pesky gophers and their mounds and divots.
