The Open Class is in the air - task cancelled
Sunday, 22. May 2022 - 14:03

The Open Class pilots are now fully airborne, while the 18m Class is still waiting. The weather conditions are quite weak.

The day has just been cancelled for the Open Class. The 18m class remains in waiting position.


Perfect for our spectators, who also want to see the 18m class take off, to comfortably enjoy an ice cream on the terrace of the airfield restaurant. Or they can drop by the aircraft hangar of the Wolf Hirth flying group and let the pilots provide them with culinary food and cold drinks.

Weather sniffers in the air
Sunday, 22. May 2022 - 11:54

While the two competition classes are still on the ground, some weather sniffers are just starting to explore the thermal conditions.

Until then, here are a few impressions from yesterday's starting field.

Only two classes in competition today
Sunday, 22. May 2022 - 09:51

About today: Meteorologist Jupp has described the weather in detail and looked at it from all sides. Unfortunately, due to the stable high-pressure weather situation and the increasing shielding by high cloud fields, there is only a very small weather window. 


Therefore, only the Open Class and the 18m Class will receive a daily task today. The other pilots have a day off today and may enjoy the beautiful pedestrian weather.

The first start is not expected before 12.30pm. The Open Class will be in the front. Take-off direction is the same as yesterday. The field of competitors will be set up on the east side of the airfield. So a perfect location for the spectators to witness the start up close.

Team iP3 is the day's winner in the Open Class
Saturday, 21. May 2022 - 22:50

We have new results in the Open Class!
Pierre and Arnaud de Broqueville win the Open Class daily classification.


The team with the starting number "iP3" has not only been an integral part of the Open Class for many years, but also a long-standing sponsor of the Hahnweidew competition.

This year, the prize for the fastest driver will be offered again. The winner will receive a case of exclusive organic wine with the beautiful hand-painted design. It is worth taking a look at the lovingly designed homepage of 'WIGNAC' with its delicious fruit varieties!


A challenging day
Saturday, 21. May 2022 - 18:58

As already announced, many participants were not able to complete the challenging task for the weather today.

In the standard class, 6 pilots managed to complete the task. The fastest was Valentin Leleu-Lambour (ZT) from France on LS8 with almost 93 km/h.

In the 15m class, 7 pilots received a time score. The day's winner was Timothy Scott (Z3) from Great Britain with 80.5 km/h, flown with a 15m variant of the ASG29. (left picture)

In the 18m class, 4 of the 37 participants managed to complete the task. Third place went to Christian Maex from LSC Burg Feuerstein. He flew the almost 300km with 80.5 km/h on an "AS 33 Es" with matching competition registration "MÄX". (Photo right) The winner was probably Wolfgang Janowitsch from Austria, second one Bert Schmelzer from Belgium.

The open class is still being evaluated. According to the current status, none of the pilots managed to fly the task. Currently, the English are in the lead in the kilometre ranking.

The two-seater class also had to cancel completely due to the weather. The longest distance was flown by Team Norbert Sommer on Arcus M with 253km.


The ranking is still provisional, as not all flight data could be read out yet. Changes are possible.

Unfortunately, most of those who flew pure gliders without auxiliary engines had to land outside. We wish the pilots and their crews a quick and successful recovery.
