The Flight Office Team

The flight office in Bitterwasser is now staffed according to gender. Dirk Skura, who has already taken on the task for the past two years, is now supported by Alex Hörmann. During the Christmas holidays 2019 - when she was still a student pilot - Alex gathered her first Namibia experience.

When you arrive at Bitterwasser you have to go to the two first. The flight office controls the paper and explains the airspace situation in Namibia and the special features of the gliding center. And it provides professional flight control at takeoff and especially when the day is drawing to a close. The “one hour before sun set call” is used to check where the pilots and teams are and that they can safely get into Bitterwasser in daylight. In the middle of the Kalahari this is anything but trivial, this semi-desert can very quickly become hostile to life.

Just married in Bitterwasser

“No, that's not our honeymoon,” said the so obviously enamoured Christopher and Marie Rogos when they arrived at Bitterwasser. But just six weeks before their joint gliding vacation in Namibia they got married.

Willi is not that wild at all

Oops, a gazelle. At first glance, the new Bitterwasser guests are surprised when they see Willi in the lodge. Willi is a little springbok.
