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.

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.
