The very first Chinese-owned-ARCUS from Qing  and Andrew “Peng” Du, who is the Schempp-Hirth dealer for China as well.

Just to let you know ;
Just got the latest news on Chinese glider pilots. Some of them, flew here already for a few years. Now they are ready for the next step; organizing “things”  by their selves. Not much happening this year , it’s all “work in progress”, at this stage.
Soaring China is a company promoting soaring for Chinese people.They have an agreement with OUTBACK SOARING Tocumwal, to organize the operations from the Tocumwal Aerodrome.
They welcomed the new ARCUS M , the very first owned by Chinese people, over Christmas with good food and nice wines, as you can see on the pictures.
Will keep you informed how they go.
In China this group is setting up a glider center at the edge of the GOBI DESERT, according to Andrew a great place to fly. The hangar there is already built.

Andrew will give us soon, some more info about soaring in China as well. Most interesting as I don’t know a lot about it. It’s all probably new for you as well.



The ladies at the AINTIQUE shop, last week with Zita and Jean.


And with Liz in het scoot mobile.


Also a picture from my visit to the Menhennit’s with Libby, “old”  Mary [88] and Mary Anne and me.I managed with some help to upload these pictures from my mobile.



CHRISTMAS day was, as usual, not a very busy day on the OLC.
Only 28 pilots choose to put a flight on it.
One 1000 k. from Carlos Rocca from Munivitacura.

Still a bit off , but getting there.

Cheers Ritz
