"Delta-Wisky, ready for takeoff in two minutes"

When this radio message reaches Bitterwasser, it goes straight to Stefan and Dominik Senger in the flight office.

The two of them ensure that everything runs smoothly on the ground by coordinating all takeoffs. Runway, takeoff direction, takeoff time - everything is neatly documented and executed.

Avgas and oxygen are always ready here for the extra long flight experience!

Before taking to the air, the team passes on its knowledge to the pilots at the morning briefing. Weather, thermals and winds - the airspace over Namibia is checked.

And even after all the takeoffs, they organize harmonious and regulated flight operations from the ground. The weather parameters and the glider tracker are always in view, the radio always in hand.

So the two of them are an absolute all-round team!

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.
