Funds raised go directly to support GLIDEs
programs, which help people overcome hunger, poverty and homelessness.
Perhaps we should cut right to the life-saving takeaway: If you're engine-out in a typical single and gliding into a headwind of 15 knots or more, pitching down to at least 10 knots over published best glide
speed will probably extend your glide
Tickets for the Historic Oakwood Segway tour are $55 per person and are available through the Triangle Glides
This may lead to a choice of longer glides

But during a glide
, the flyer splays out its ribs and sucks in its belly.
The FAA's Airplane Flying Handbook FAA-H-8083-3A, recommends practicing glides
with the propeller in flat pitch/high rpm.
Dr Roeland de Kat, research fellow in the aerodynamics and flight mechanics research group, says: "What interests me is that aerodynamic efficiency is not the dominant factor in determining glide
Once done, attach the glides
, reassemble the rocker box, and give the scope a test drive.
We'll also give you some tips for installing the drawer glides
without a lot of head scratching.
As the dynamic glide
begins, the weight shifts back onto the support leg heel and the center of gravity is raised and replaced in the direction of the throw.
Extending the landing gear created enough additional drag at glide
speed to increase the already-steep rate of descent by another 600 feet per minute.
According to Lyle Knudson (1990), the dominant qualities of glide
shot-putting are speed and power.
