850 FREE – Free Flight Articles – PFFT

In late 2015, the Pensacola Free Flight Team (a club – known as PFFT) decided to disband.  This was due to the loss of their flying site and member attrition and other considerations.  Clubs come and go, but this had an impact on many modelers as their newsletter editor, George White, maintained a large library of Free flight hints and tips that appeared in their newsletter over the many years.  Many were reprints from other newsletters, but the value was the consolidated collection; modelers could count on going to the PFFT web site and researching the problem du jour.  With the closing of the club came the closing of the website.  I volunteered to be one of the websites that would replicate their library so the information would not be lost (I believe the NFFS site also maintains the library).  So, below are the contents – through 2015 – of the PFFT Library – over 850 articles.  (If you find any broken links,let me know.)  First, the intro as it was seen on the PFFT site:

Index of Thermalier Articles

For those of our readers, who like your friendly editor, can’t recall where that article we wanted to look up later got filed, here’s a list of the articles published during the past several years. The list will be updated in January of each year to add the articles from the previous year. The date of the issue in which the article was published is shown in the other column. Each issue covers two months, hence the hyphenated month numbers.
Should you wish to download any specific article, simply click on the name of the article and it will be delivered to your desktop in .PDF format, which you will be able to view and/or print using Adobe Acrobat Reader.

We owe a special thanks to the editors of a lot of newsletters, together with their contributing authors, as well as the contributors to the Thermalier, for these articles. In every article for which we could find the author and/or the publisher, they are recognized.
