The containers are on their way

Best cross-country weather in Namibia, but now the 21/22 season in Bitterwasser is definitely over. The Grid Boys' packer team has once again grappled hard.

Five Arcus were the last to find their place in the containers. The total of seven containers, some with up to six gliders, are now being shipped to Walvis Bay by truck. The freighter Green Mountain will take them to Rotterdam. They are expected there in early March. The gliders should then be ready to fly again in Europe in mid-March, just in time for the new cross-country flight season.

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.
