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.

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.
