Namibia from above

A flight over Namibia is always a spectacle.

The view from the glider is anything but one-sided. The landscape is constantly changing.
Around Bitterwasser, the Kalahri shows itself from its most beautiful side. The endless expanse in all its glory.

Flying westwards, a mountain range separating the Namib and the Kalahari extends beyond the desert. Both deserts extend into the south of Namibia. And the Namib Desert also has a lot to offer. In some parts there are sand dunes - some of the largest dunes in the world.

The landscape in the north is somewhat different. The climate becomes more humid, making the landscape a little greener.

If you look closely over Namibia, you can see not only the fantastic landscapes, but also the wildlife. Herds are on the move and can be observed from above.

Namibia has a lot to offer and is an absolute dream for flying enthusiasts.

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.
