I have perused your site. However OSM's premise is that mapping should be open source and free and not contolled by coporate entities such such as Goggle.

In flight harness issue

I apologize if I offended anyone if I violated some protocall by posting this. I didn't realize it came from HG.org (or where ever). I got the link from a posting elsewhere(local club website) and found it interesting and pilots might learn something from it so I past it along. Hang checks are not i...
