The last ones are now leaving Bitterwasser

Now the time has come. The Joschko's also end their Namiba stay. Now it will be very, very empty. But the next season will come for sure.

In Bitterwasser it is as green as seldom. Who of the glider pilots can imagine that glider operation on the 09 would no longer be possible because of too high grass. On the picture Christa is standing on the 11 (Hoskia) in knee-high grass.

Soon Jeremias and his team will cut and collect the grass as fodder for the animals in worse times.

It was only a small season 2020/21 but it was very nice. There has already been a blog entry about the results.

The 2021/22 season is already casting its shadow. The booking requests are enormous. Therefore book as soon as possible at hog@bitterwasser.com

See you in the new season!

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.
