Glider Aviation

Prior to taking off, pilots must provide their name as well as the tail code to the  departures manager (at the "start bus"), preferably not over their aircraft radio!

Transportation of gliders to the take-off point using private vehicles is only possible in consultation with the operations director!

  • Water hook-ups are located on the west side of the main building as well as next to the hangar.
  • Taxiing to take-off point 04 exclusively via the north taxyway. Exercise caution when crossing the runway!
  • The responsible pilot must insure that no equipment is left in the starting area (dollies, support wheels, ...).
  • The glider area is north of the runway.
  • The standard take-off point is 04 (except if otherwise directed by the flight operations manager and in a strong westerly wind).
  • Pilot must activate the hook release independently! The tow altitude is announced by the towing pilot in increments of 100.
  • Gliders below an altitude of 300 m may only fly north of the airfield. Pilots wishing to cross the airfield from south to north with an altitude less than 600 m must provide radio notification!
  • Gradually reduce altitude within the indicated position by circling in a clockwise direction.

Runway Information

Glider Runway
Lining Up  04
  • Save space by lining up gliders on taxiways!
  • Move forward to the designated holding point.
  • If your start is delayed, allow fellow aviators who are ready for take-off to pass.
  • Notify the take-off coordinator that you are "ready for take-off".

  • Leave plenty of space between gliders for towing aircraft.

Take-Off and Landing Times
  • At the close of business of every flight day, copies of the take-off and landing manifest will be placed in a brown folder outside the office of the flight department on the 1st floor.
  • Information cannot be provided by radio since this would result in too much traffic!
Approach Procedures
  • Report your position with complete tail code no later than 200 m in altitude!
  • Landings are principally on the glider landing field (grass); landings on asphalt only in consultation with the operations director (You must report your position in this case no later than 500 m in altitude)
  • If you are making a cross-approach, do not over-turn (LOOK OUT for motorized aircraft!)
  • Immediately vacate the landing area.
Off-Field Landings
  • Off-field landings must be reported to the airfield.
  • Off-field landings at the Aigen / Ennstal military airfield (tower: 118.00 MHz | Aigen glider control: 130.00 MHz). If the tower isn't manned, you must notify Aigen Glider Control!
