Women's power!

For several days now, the strong womens team in Bitterwasser has been competing with the male pilots.

The four ladies Andrea Abt, Margherita Acquaderni, Petra Zimmermann-Lauer and Ilka Elster-Back have covered a long distance of kilometers in recent days.

Especially on 5. 11 they were far ahead of the men.

At the front: Ilka Elster-Back with 834 km.

Petra, Andrea and Margherita flew over 700 km. And this with averages of up to 130 km/h. This means that Bitterwasser has strong female pilots and we expect many more!

We mourn the loss of Dieter Schwenk

As a member of the Bitterwasser Board of Directors and CFI of the Soaring Society of Namibia, Dieter has rendered outstanding services to gliding in Namibia.

Sitting at his favorite spot in Bitterwasser, he has left us forever.

We will not forget him.

Season final

The season in Bitterwasser is slowly drawing to a close.
One by one, the gliders are being loaded into the containers. And still some teams fly over 1000 kilometers every day.
