Just married in Bitterwasser

“No, that's not our honeymoon,” said the so obviously enamoured Christopher and Marie when they arrived at Bitterwasser. But just six weeks before their joint gliding vacation in Namibia they got married.

"We planned our vacation here a year in advance," said Christopher as an explanation. However, the two of them did not marry spontaneously after all. They got to know each other during their shared hobby at Akaflieg Frankfurt at the Ring Ziegenhein site. Christopher is also a flight instructor there, but he has not trained Marie, who started gliding four years before. “But he let me go for the first solo flight,” says Marie. In the meantime they have covered big distances together in the Duo Discus. With two LS4s they also covered distances  up to 600 km. Sometimes the tasks were distributed differently: At the German championship of the 18m class in Stendal Marie was Christoph's helper. In Bitterwasser they now share an Arcus cockpit. Almost a 1000 k flight is already in the flight log.
After two weeks of gliding, they will go with a camper with a roof tent on a discovery tour through Namibia.

Wir trauern um Dieter Schwenk

Dieter hat sich als Mitglied des Bitterwasser Board of Directors und CFI der Soaring Societey of Namibia um den Segelflug in Namibia besonders verdient gemacht.

An seinem Lieblingsplatz in Bitterwasser sitzend hat er uns für immer verlassen.

Wir werden ihn nicht vergessen.
