Segelfliegen magazin/soaring international 01-2024 – We start the New Year!

Established in German-speaking countries for over 20 years, the specialist gliding magazine has also offered an international audience unlimited reading pleasure in an English digital version for the past three issues! From the March/April issue onwards, the bi-monthly magazine will also address the gliding community worldwide in terms of content as soaring international. Therefore we are looking for authors in English-speaking countries who have the time and desire to report on their flights, their local flying areas, their clubs and so on. If you feel addressed, send us an e-mail to:
We look forward to seeing you!

240204In the current issue January-February you can read these topics:
We start with a background report on the portal. And then we are already sitting in the cockpit, working on our personal goals, experiencing a year with the ASH 31 Mi, flying at Porta Westfalica and being carried by the Morning Glory in faraway Australia – fascinating pictures accompany us. Our meteo topic highlights the special features of the 2023 Klippeneck competition and an interesting interview sheds light on a partnership for the future. This is also where an ambitious project for a hydrofoil is heading, while others are dreaming of the past and gather every year at the Vintage Glider Club for a colorful classic car get-together. Even more historic is our look at the famous Vampyr, which came to an inglorious end in 1923. The safety topics bring us back to the present, focusing on pilot-induced oscillations in F-tow and flight safety. Finally, make yourself comfortable in your plane and pack it in a pair of pyjamas from China (junk or bargain?) and then enjoy stories from the cockpit and our, as always, witty column (or read it first, as many readers do).
Whatever you decide: we wish you lots of fun reading and a brilliant start to the gliding year 2024.  
And if you still need to get a copy: it's waiting for a new reader here!
