Hello all, I thought I would use this opportunity to introduce myself (and to see how this yahoo group thing works).
My name is Allen Strong and live in the Beautiful Northwest of the United States.
To make things clear, I am not a glider pilot, but have been enthralled by sailplanes since seeing my first at Torrey Pines in 1964. I cannot offer a knowledgeable opinion that has anything to do with piloting so I won’t be going there. And I may be asking some pretty dumb questions
What I can offer to this group is my 20 plus years experience as an electrical engineer. I have extensive experience in prime movers, and their control, be they be gas, diesel, electric or turbine. I also have good contacts with some excellent engineers in other disciplines (e.g. materials, mechanical, safety, and instrumentation, to name a few).
I’m pretty good at developing engineering estimates from sketchy designs, and have a good sense for practical solutions.
Be advised that I do have opinions about how things should be done, but I am flexible and don’t have temper tantrums.
Again, thank you for this opportunity to share what little I know and to offer any assistance I can.
