Lots of hands make for fast work. Wax on Wax off DanielSan!Archive shot of a primary glider at the RheinbeckAerodrome living museum. They still fly original andreplica early aviation aircraft every weekend.FLARMUlrike WustnerFLARM is an anti collosionsystem which was inventedin Switzerland mainlybecause of the manyelectrical wires andobstacles you can see verylate while flying in the Alpes.A lot of gliders in Austria andGermany have it installednowadays, in my club everyglider (the club gliders andthe private ones) have it installed. But it only works, if bothapproaching planes have it installed and switched on. It showsyou if there is another glider near you (direction and if higheror lower or same height) and, what is very important, it showsyou, if another glider is approaching you in a way that mightresult in a collision. We use the FLARM also as a datalogger,you can use the recorded data for the OLC . There is also aFLARM version, that shows you not only that there are othergliders near you but also if this gliders are in a thermal andgetting higher or if they lose height.For more information see also www.flarm.comA dolly was started by making the fiberglass boot. The I only can recommend to install FLARM, it makes flying safer,wheel still needs to be mounted and the boot finished but especially in our area in Germany, where there are sometimeswe have a dolly!really a lot of gliders flying in the same area.
