  1. Hi Ritz.
    Maybe you don`t know, but Petr Svoboda is “cheating” as he has been a tuggie at Eddies Sportaviation some years ago.
    Ib and I met him there, and he also had some gliding around besides tugging.
    I met him last time in Hungary past summer, where he beat me in the Europeans in the Duo.
    He now flies for Ryanair.
    Best regards and safe journey home.
