Waiting for the overflight permits

So far, we have almost always received the overflight permits for the gliders on time at the beginning of the season, without which we cannot take off. This applies equally to all gliding centers. But...

Here we go!

The construction team arrived and immediately got to work. (See photo)

On 28.10 hopefully our airplanes will arrive. Until then there is a lot to do on the ground.

Here are our experiences during the emmigration.

The gliders are on their way!

It was a bit of a drudgery until Sunday, September 12th, when all the gliders had found their place in one of the seven containers for the transport to Bitterwasser.
