Bitterwasser is also a place for youngsters. With the Europe-wide Bitterwasser Cup and a success at German Gliding Championships juniors have the chance to be invited to the gliding center. Two winners have already been determined: Lukas Blattmann (4th) from the Flugsportclub Charlottenburg Berlin and Mike Bauer (5th) from the Eichstätt Flying. These two club class pilots won the ticket to the 1000 kilometer camp of Wilfried Großkinsky in Zwickau as the best juniors. Simon Briel from LSV Homberg Ohm, this year's best junior in the standard class and second in the Junior World Championships in Szeged, was already at the camp last season,will receive a special invitation by Wilfried Großkinsky and Rainer Hog with Bitterwasser AG.

The Bitterwasser Cup is still running, and the winners of the OLC Junior Challenge have not been decided yet. The award ceremony will take place on October 5 at the OLC Symposium in the Rhön.

Maximilian Dorsch already learned to appreciate the Bitterwasser Flying Center. He trained to fly big distances in Namibias in one of Wilfried Großkinsky`s 1000 km training camps. This year, on the 10th of July, Maximilian used this experience to fly a 1008-kilometer distance with a LS4 WL from his home field Bamberg. With this flight he conquered the top in the Bitterwasser Junior Cup 2019. At the „OLC-final“, the prize giving ceremony of the online contest 2019 in Poppenhausen / Rhön this October weekend, he got the reward: Rainer Hog congratulated on behalf of the Bitterwasser AG and presented the invitation for a week cross country flying in the Flying Center Bitterwasser. The junior from AC Bamberg won by a clear margin over Markus Uhlig from FC Großrückerwalde. Henrik Theiss of FLG Grabenstetten took 3rd place.

Bitterwasser on the Top PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

That was a season! The performance of Bitterwasser is outstanding. In the statistics of the Online Contest 2019 the gliding center is almost alone at the top with 605344 points.

Compared to all countries in the southern hemisphere Namibia has proven to be the one with the best conditions for cross country flying. The top places in the ranking of the best performing airfields belong without exception to Namibia.

With 134 pilots and 782 flights over a total of 604570 kilometers Bitterwasser has clearly set itself apart from the neighboring gliding centers Veronica, Kiripotib and Pokweni.

Behind Namibia, Australia and South Africa share the places in the OLC statistics of best airfields. It remains to be seen how Puimoisson, southern France, will perform in the rest season of the northern hemisphere.

210 flights over 1000 kilometers contributed to the leading position of Bitterwasser, including 5 flilghts over 1300, 19 over 1200 and 54 over 1100 kilometers.

The first gliders are already in the containers for the journey to Bitterwasser. For almost 30 self launchers loadmaster Sascha Costabel had created space in one of the large steel boxes. On the first weekend in September they were packed with sophisticated suspension systems. Just six 18-meter single-seaters fit into a container thanks to good planning. The big solos, an Antares and an ASW 22, have to share their travel cabin with one of the double-seaters, which meanwhile make the single-seaters a marginal phenomenon in the Flying Center Bitterwasser.

Via Hamburg and  Antwerp the journey of the seven containers starts now with the Bright Horizon to Walvis Bay. The freighter is expected there at the beginning of October - in time for the new flying season.
