The gliders are on their way!

It was a bit of a drudgery until Sunday, September 12th, when all the gliders had found their place in one of the seven containers for the transport to Bitterwasser.

Whole teams were always asked to lift the wings into the roof brackets, and later on the slim ones for the lashing work. With up to six gliders in one container, things were already tight. Now it goes by road to Antwerp and from there with the Golden Karoo of the shipping company MACS to Walvis Bay. The Golden Karoo is expected in Walvis Bay on October 19th. So the course is set for a punctual start to the season in Bitterwasser.

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.
