A 1000k to start with!

It was a test of patience until finally the overflight permit for Namibia was available on Thursday, November 4th 16:00 lok. Numerous guests already gathered their feet in Bitterwasser, excited about the first flights over Namibia.

Reinhard Schramme and Bernd Goretzki then went straight to the limit: at the end of the day, 1034 kilometers were on the counter of their EB28. Their flight took them first in blue thermals then under well-developed cloudy skies far to the northeast. And it went up high. Those who followed the first flights on the glidernet saw Bruno Gantenbrink in the late afternoon with his NimEta at 5700 meters MSL! Ten pilots and Arcus teams used this first opportunity in Bitterwasser for the excursion over the Kalahari.

Ein neues Gesicht in Bitterwasser.

Florian Stoyke ist die diesjährige Unterstützung im Flight Office. Gemeinsam mit Dirk Skura und Michael Stoltze bildet er das Team der Flugsaison 2022/23.

Ein ganz normaler Namibia Flugtag

Gestern (15.11.) war schon beim Briefing klar dass man heute vierstellig fliegen kann. Und das haben dann auch insgesamt 23 Besatzungen, in Bitterwasser 9, gemacht und Strecken über 1000 km hingelegt.
