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".

We mourn the loss of Dieter Schwenk

As a member of the Bitterwasser Board of Directors and CFI of the Soaring Society of Namibia, Dieter has rendered outstanding services to gliding in Namibia.

Sitting at his favorite spot in Bitterwasser, he has left us forever.

We will not forget him.

Season final

The season in Bitterwasser is slowly drawing to a close.
One by one, the gliders are being loaded into the containers. And still some teams fly over 1000 kilometers every day.
