Lunch at the Wolf Hirth Hangar
Thursday, 26. May 2022 - 12:37

Dear spectators of the International Hahnweide Competition.

As already written in advance, not all classes will take-off today. It is expected that only 53 of a total of 105 gliders will be able to fly a competition day. The reason for this is that, according to the forecast, the flying conditions for today will not improve until the afternoon. This means that the usable time window will not be sufficient for all competition classes. The pilots of the 18m class and the two-seater class, which already have one more day of scoring, may take a break today for Father's Day.

At the moment we are dealing with cloudy skies, which severely limit thermal activities. Therefore, the first start will be delayed by quite some time.

Lunch in the Wolf Hirth Hangar

There will be plenty of time to enjoy the culinary delights provided by the members of the Wolf Hirth Flying Group in our hangar.


We have something for everyone, from creamy mushroom ragout with napkin dumplings to steak, various sausages, homemade salads, buttered pretzels and freshly baked cake.

Come along and enjoy it! Besides, you can get in the mood with impressions of the last flying days on our monitor in the hangar.

Gridding for Open, 15m and Standard Class
Thursday, 26. May 2022 - 09:58


In the meantime, there is hardly anything left of the blue sky. As meteorologist Jupp had already correctly recognised this morning, our weather is affected by shielding, accompanied by strong winds. Only in the afternoon should conditions improve for our pilots. See his forecast for yourself:


The 18m class and the double seater class have been cancelled for today due to the weather window which is expected to be usable late.

For the other three classes, the start set-up has now begun. Today's starting order: Open class in front, followed by 15m class and standard class.

Next information expected around 12:30 pm.

Gridding after briefing
Thursday, 26. May 2022 - 07:27


Even if it doesn't look like this morning: our day will probably be dominated by an occluding front. We expect a short weather window in the late afternoon. Gridding after the briefing. 

Enjoy the wonderful morning with bright blue sunshine! Happy Father's Day!!

All gliders in the air
Wednesday, 25. May 2022 - 12:14

Super performance by the launch team, the tow pilots and the entire ground staff. All 105 gliders were in the air in less than 1:30 hours.

The last aircraft to take off was the Eta, flown by Uli Schwenk and Matthew Scutter. It has a fabulous wingspan of 31 metres, making it the largest glider in the world. Only a few examples were built worldwide, two of them are flying here at the Hahnweide competition.


We wish all pilots a good flight!
