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!

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.
