Mount Diablo Closed to Vehicular Traffic

Diablo isn’t technically closed, but pilots will need to hike in from the bottom.

Re: NorCal Falcon League?

Eric,
Sure, any single surface flexwing would be welcome. So far there is still plenty of room for more participants. I'm not on FB and would likely communicate by email and phone.

Who else is interested?

ATOS B Rigid Glider with Upgrades - $2500

This glider is being sold by the family of a pilot who passed after a long illness. It's been inspected and is in good overall shape with all structural components in very good condition. The sail still had much life in it and the trailing edge velcro is still good. This glider comes with a v-tail a...

NorCal Falcon League?

Over the past year, I've been occasionally flying a Falcon 225 at various sites. My goal has been to fly locations not necessarily well-suited to my main glider, a rigid wing. I've taken to visiting some modest hike-and-fly PG sites, and it has enhanced my airtime capacity as well as opened up my mi...

Re: Recommendation for custom front rack for a mercedes

There are likely good attachment points for front rack receivers that can be bolted onto your car. I recently bought a Honda Pilot, and wanted the same type of receivers you're talking about. I had no idea where such receivers could be attached, but I figured out how to find out. I Googled "fro...

Re: Come Join MLSR-Lake McClure

"MLSR closest thermal soaring to the Bay." Ted, It's great that McClure is upgrading, and I wish MLSR's well, but your one comment is completely inaccurate. WOR's Mount Diablo is a dynamic thermal soaring site, with many thousands of XC miles logged - and it's right here in our back yard....

Anyone Want to Sell a Falcon 220 or 225? - I got one!

[EDIT] I found a used one at a good price - Thanks, Roy!

I'm looking to increase my glider portfolio, and would love to get a big SS floater. I'm willing to pay the market rate.

Indian Valley Flying

Despite the closing of Tweeten's bailout LZ, there's been plenty of flying in IV this summer. Last weekend, five of us flew, including two pilots on Sport 2's. We all had fun soaring flights, getting over 10k' and soaring over both the ridge and valley. IV is not, and never has been, a site for newb...
