Migratory bird from the Teutoburger Wald in Bitterwasser

Where can you not find the gliders of the Segelflugschule Oerlinghausen, resident at the Teutoburger Wald? After Caiolo in Italy and La Motte in the French Alps, now also in southern Africa.

The new Arcus M, the D-KQMA, of the Segelflugschule Oerlinghausen is part of the grid in Bitterwasser – currently supervised by school principal Carsten Kopsieker.
In the grid the gliders stand next to each other on the pan – it simply offers a lot of space. This means that no one else gets dusty during the take-off run, and the flights can begin with perfectly clean glider. Placed next to each other, you can also prepare calmly without being pushed from behind.

1400 Kilometres for Christmas

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.
