A new face in Bitterwasser.

Florian Stoyke is this year's support in the flight office. Together with Dirk Skura and Michael Stoltze he forms the team for the flight season 2022/23.

"Hello everyone, I'm Florian, a flight student at my home club in Detmold. When I finished high school this summer, I wanted to explore Namibia and not leave gliding at home. Where, if not in Bitterwasser? In the meantime, I have been on site for four weeks. Well integrated in the flight office, I am mainly concerned with the pilot and aircraft documents, the writing of start lists and the setup of the GPS-SPOTS. I like to help with the take-offs in the morning and with putting the airplanes away in the evening. This together and the beautiful environment here, make life and flying special for me. Gliding in Namibia inspires me every day anew. It is nice that I can be part of it. Until the End of January I will be working in Bitterwasser. I am looking forward to meeting you all.
See you soon in Bitterwasser".

1400 Kilometres for Christmas

Flying 1000 kilometres on Christmas is a great gift for any pilot. Four pilots fulfilled this wish with over 1100 kilometres on a day with unexpected possibilities. Simon Schröder and Max Schäfer flew a whole 1400 kilometres with the EB28 on Christmas Eve. In the following, they report on their flight.

The Line-Boys of the 2022/23 Season

Our Line-Boys are doing a valuable job again this year.
During the season, when there is always a lot of activity, the experienced Line-
Boys (easily recognisable by their red clothing) contribute to smooth flight
operations.
