Sunny and beautiful in the Greifenburg area again! Decided to launch from Emeberger alm, discussing the route during our morning briefing at Gasthof post. Follow us with the livetracking today: Low cloudbase didn’t allow most of us to follow the task towards the higher ridge. Nevertheless, the flying was very beautiful, playing with the clouds led to some impressive gopro shots, the group was flying together and that was fun!

Training Day – Russian Course

with No Comments

  The course starts only tomorrow but all our pilots are already here at the Emeberger launch, getting ready to fly! For some of them it will be their first ever flight in Greifenburg! The conditions aren’t great: even though the winds are light SE, the overcast skies make everyone’s staying up quite difficult. Artur goes first on the red Gecko. Everyone follows right away! Only Edward isn’t flying today, having rest between the two courses he is taking part in.
