Sounds like something for an adventurous volunteer to do!

There is a partial index.  Look at the section just above the plans.

Quite the trove of info and even plans, albeit of rudimentary form and print quality.
 Still... a whole winters worth of informative  reading in that archive.
Shame that  the index goes to issue 281 but the archive only goes to ~ 250

I'm not sure when they started this, but it's not too new.  I can remember having a blast trying to look through all of these probably two maybe three years ago.  It's great stuff.

Some of the issues aren't on yet, and it appears that the one I might need is not on yet.  Does anyone have a copy of the issue that contained the plan for an Oeffag Albatros D-III about 18' span?  I believe that it was from the early 80's?  Let me know if you have it.  Thanks in advance.

They have every issue from 1967 up through 2010.  If you click on one and it won't open and/or takes you to a 404 pages it is a broken link.  Email the FAC webmaster and he can reset.  Its Dave Mitchell still I think.

This might help a bit for searching through the newsletters: Use Google by entering your search criteria but also add this: site:flyingacesclub.com to it.  It doesn't actually search through the PDFs because those are scans but FAC does provide a bit of indexing information along with each newsletter and Google scans it into their system.  To test it I was looking at #227 and noted that Amelia Erheart's Kinner Crackerbox was in there so I googled the following:

Quote
site:flyingacesclub.com crackerbox

The response I got was:

[PDF]227 - Flying Aces Club
www.flyingacesclub.com/issue227.pdf
The plans for this one came from; Al Backstrom (Amelia Earhart's Kinner "Crackerboxā€¯ Airster), John Blair. (DeHavilland DH-6), and another of John Blair's Pseudo Dime Scale plans (Fairchild 22). We have a new squadron just formed, this one up in Montreal, Canada. If any of our members in Canada, or elsewhere, wish to ...

Hopefully that helps a bit in researching the FAC Newsletters.

Happy New Year

Haven't got any further back than 1985 yet. If you can discover what issue it's in, I may have a paper copy. Let me know if you discover the issue and can't find it in the scans. You might want to check with me in a few months, as the index may get as far as that model by then.

BTW, if you can wind an 18'  model, you're stronger than I am. ;-p

I haven't found what issue it was in yet, but I will try some of the above suggestions to search for it.  Sorry, I meant an 18" model.  That would have been a big issue of FAC newsletter to have an 18' Albatros plan in it.
