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..

Bitterwasser orders PV plant and reduces its carbon footprint

Namibia obtains most of its electricity from South Africa. There, mainly hard coal power plants are in operation, because South Africa can extract hard coal in opencast mining.
Now the exhaust gases of the South African hard coal power plants are not as well cleaned as in Germany. Therefore it is important to do without this electricity.

The first gliders are loaded and on their way.

This year the gliders will be brought to Bitterwasser in two groups. At the moment no forwarder can guarantee when the containers will arrive. Therefore we have decided to send four containers a little earlier so that they will actually be in Bitterwasser on November 01 for the start of the season.
