The Flight Office Team

The flight office in Bitterwasser is now staffed according to gender. Dirk Skura, who has already taken on the task for the past two years, is now supported by Alex Hörmann. During the Christmas holidays 2019 - when she was still a student pilot - Alex gathered her first Namibia experience.

When you arrive at Bitterwasser you have to go to the two first. The flight office controls the paper and explains the airspace situation in Namibia and the special features of the gliding center. And it provides professional flight control at takeoff and especially when the day is drawing to a close. The “one hour before sun set call” is used to check where the pilots and teams are and that they can safely get into Bitterwasser in daylight. In the middle of the Kalahari this is anything but trivial, this semi-desert can very quickly become hostile to life.

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.
