Preparations are underway

Last week Ralph and I (Rainer) were in Bitterwasser for a working visit. Of course by plane, as befits our status.

Preparations are underway

The flight with Eurowings and the entry were completely problem-free. A PCR test, not older than 72 hours, the completed entry form from the Internet and proof of health insurance abroad were all we needed. For the return trip, we only had to fill out the online entry form and show proof of vaccination once.
Full Covid19 vaccination or proof of recovery (2G) is mandatory for our guests this year. Our staff at the lodge will also all be vaccinated twice by the season.
On 06.09. the first two containers will be loaded. 4 more on 11.and 12.September. Then 30 airplanes with the Golden Karoo go on a big trip. Arrival in Walvis Bay on 19.10.
We are looking forward to a hopefully normal gliding season in Bitterwasser.

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.

The Line-Boys of the 2022/23 Season

Our Line-Boys are doing a valuable job again this year.
During the season, when there is always a lot of activity, the experienced Line-
Boys (easily recognisable by their red clothing) contribute to smooth flight
operations.
