About us

Our airfield is located in the East of the famous Swabian Alb. This landscape is almost flatland with some plateaus. For glider pilots, the quickly drying plateau of the Swabian Alb, in contrast to shady forests and valleys, is an optimal thermal area for extended flights from Czech Republic to the Blackforest and even further to the Swiss Jura.
