Flying with the Youngsters

In the coming season, the motto in Bitterwasser is once again: Don't learn from the old, but from the young! In the program "Flying with the Youngsters", the juniors who have gone through the school of Wilfried Großkinsky's 1000-km training camps will pass on their knowledge on double-seater flights.

If you want to get to know Namibia in the first place, you can now hire one of these young experts who have already acquired great Namibia and long-haul experience. Their coaching offer is also aimed at experienced cross-country pilots who still need the fine tuning for the big routes, the icing on the cake for great success. The offer is also aimed at those who are looking for flying fun over the Kalahari without great performance ambitions. For them, "Flying with the Youngsters" offers supervised flying for stress-free flight enjoyment. And for all those who are only flying with LAPL-Medical or do not want to take an English language test anymore, Namibia becomes possible again with "Flying with the Youngsters".

The professional coaching is about getting to know the landscape, refining technical flying skills and the right tactics for fast and long flights with optimal time management for final approaches. The focus of meteorological navigation is cloud observation, finding supporting lines and convergences, in general permanent weather observation and analysis of the development. At the end the 1000 can be in solo flight.

For the program one or two Arcus M are available in Bitterwasser. Interested? Rainer Hog (hog@bitterwasser.com) will make reservations and arrange the junior trainers.

A dedicated website at fwty.de also promotes the program..

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.
