Just married in Bitterwasser

“No, that's not our honeymoon,” said the so obviously enamoured Christopher and Marie Rogos 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.

Gerhard Marzinzik ist von uns gegangen

Die Bitterwasser PTY mit allen Freunden weltweit trauert um Gerhard Marzinzik und seinen jungen Copiloten, die am 12. April 2022 bei einem Flugunfall in den Alpen im Pustertal ums Leben kamen.

Nach langer Reise....

Die Hängerreihe hatte ihre Mäuler schon lange weit aufgesperrt am Mittwoch, um endlich die Flugzeuge aus Bitterwasser aufzunehmen. Aber erst einmal musste der Zoll in die Container schauen.
