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.

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.
