There is definitely an anti power attitude among some glider pilots towards “us lot” that we don’t look where we’re going, can’t fly accurately enough, are not as safety conscious as we should be etc.
I have witnessed it. It is a rather childish attitude. “Steam gives way to sail” seems to be taken extremely seriously in their favour. In spite of the fact that modern gliders are far more maneuverable and safer without having to rely on the continued function of the Otto cycle.
I wish I knew why.
It would, I’m sure, cause friction if the two sections were to merge.
