- The Non-Drinking Pilot: Understanding Thirst and Flying. An article in Hang Gliding Magazine, March, 2002.
- Thirst and the Drinking Pilot: The text of an article published in Soaring Magazine Volume 65 No 11, November, 2001.
- How to Crash Confidently: Illusions and Spatial Disorientation. SDO in VFR conditions causes 24% of Canadian Air Force accidents. After careful study, I believe SDO events are an important cause of incidents and accidents in both gliders and other types of sport flying. These slides are posted from a talk given in 2000 to soaring pilots.
- Auto-tow Ground Launching
This is an essay written from my experience from 1995-2000 ground launching a Blanik L-13 using auto tow. I will add illustrations as time permits; I would appreciate suggestions for additional material; if you send me email with good stories or additional material including illustrations or better explanations, I will include them with attribution. (I may edit them severely.)
- Pilot Physiology:Clues You Can Use to Stay Competent.
This is a long essay written to teach pilots that we can, if we pay attention to the changes in our bodies, detect ahead of time impending "impairment" that, undetected, can cause us to something even more stupid than we planned.
