Waiting for the overflight permits

So far, we have almost always received the overflight permits for the gliders on time at the beginning of the season, without which we cannot take off. This applies equally to all gliding centers. But...

For reasons that are incomprehensible to us, we all do not have these permits. Together with the operators of the other gliding centers, we are making intensive efforts, and in the meantime also at the highest political level, to obtain this permit.

We are expecting a positive decision every hour.

But the mood is good in spite of everything.

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.
