A normal Namibia flying day

Yesterday (15.11.) it was already clear at the briefing that we could fly four digits today. And that's what 23 crews did, in Bitterwasser 9, and they flew distances over 1000 km.

The balance:
5x > 1000 km (1x FAI), 3x > 1100 km and 1x > 1200 km.
The speeds were accordingly high ( up to146 km/h)
The season has now really taken off.  With almost 50 guests Bitterwasser is very well visited already at the beginning.
The participants of "Flying with the Youngsters" already got their money's worth on the second day and were all able to record flights over 1000 km.

Aircraft back home

On Saturday we were able to unload six containers with the aircraft. On Friday, after extensive inspections at customs in Rotterdam(X-ray) and Bruchsal(gas examination), they arrived safely and without damage in Waghäusel.

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.
