Field fires, unfortunately every year

Again this year there are many field fires. But our team is prepared.

In January and February there has been good rain. Because of that a lot of grass has grown. Now the grass is "straw dry" and burns very easily and yeasty.

Our employees are prepared for this and as part of the neighborhood assistance, every fire in a 30km radius is extinguished by all farmers together. On the car there is a pump with a small water barrel and in the second vehicle more water is brought in.

At night you can see especially well how fierce the fires are.

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.
