Here you can share my "Soaring adventures" with me. I fly gliders since 1979 and 10 years ago I found my passion for long distance flights. The main reason for my flights is discovering our nice landmarks in reachable distances without loosing completely the sportiv aspect. Most of my rides I do with my "Old lady" an LS 1d Club class 15m glider build in 1973. From spring 2014 I fly a self-launching 17.6m Ventus cM in shared ownership...
BER - Fly in 2014
Landing for free at BER International
The opportunity is extremely rare, and for sure the last time: The airport Berlin-Schoenefeld on August 30 and 31 offers a fly-in for GA aircraft. And the best part: landing and parking for free including a sightseeing tour on the construction site.

Formation flight training 20.04.2013
To be prepared for the next ultralight roundtrip to Poland, Slovakia and Czech Rpublik we met with 7 aircraft for formation flight training. After briefing with Siegmar and handout of funny nicknames "Rita 1 to 7" we practised mass take-off, formation, release of formation and mass landing.
