Meinaako nuo onnistua VFR:nä Pietariin täältä lentämisessä siis? :)


Moiseen voisi jopa yrittää muiluttautua mukaan tms jos toteuttavat. Se ei kai ole ihan triviaalia vieläkään mun käsityksen mukaan.

Jeanilla lienee suhteet kunnossa, vei yhden puljan läpi Venäjän Kirgisiaan tms. ja takaisin muutama vuosi sitten.

HG memorialiin on voinut aiemmin hypätä mukaan \ poistua vaikkapa kesken matkan.

Vakavasti kiinnostuneet laittakaa yv:tä ja yhteystiedot niin voin ylihuomenna välittää ne Jeanille.

PF + ANR Training Weekend

Friday, 5 – Sunday, 7 May 2017


1. General information

Preliminary remark:

This text in all its aspects applies to both sexes, even if not stated explicitly.

An experienced team will be in charge of organising, preparing and conducting the 2016 weekend training


• Camp Director

Ms. Esther Rimensberger

• PF (Precision Flying):

Ms. Esther Rimensberger

(ground instruction and practice flights)

• Back office (PF):

Ms. Christine Zahno

Bernhard Streckeisen

Hanspeter Keller

Werner Unold

• ANR (Air Navigation Race):

Maurice Ducret

(ground instructions and practice flights)

• Back office (ANR):

Lorenz Egli

The PFA weekend training camp particularly aims to introduce newcomers to the fascinating world of Precision

Flying and Air Navigation Racing. In addition, experienced PF and ANR pilots and navigators are given the

opportunity to refresh or deepen their knowledge and skills and to prepare themselves for the competitions in


Two PF navigation routes (Friday/Saturday) as well as ANR practice routes (Saturday/Sunday) will be

prepared for each participant.

Prior to the official start of the training weekend, an introduction to precision flying in the form of a basic

ground school lesson will be given to all first-time (and repeat) participants in Donaueschingen on Friday.

Introduction to ANR will take place immediately before the first ANR practice flight on Saturday.

Our programme for the weekend is tailored to give participants not only opportunities for flying, but also for

socialising with fellow aviators.

If a sufficient number of volunteers are available, canvas targets will be placed along the PF tracks.

Please bring your family and friends. They will help us to not only make the social aspect, but also our

flying activities even more attractive!

Once again, AFLOS loggers will be used for all time checks. All flights will be analysed (PrecisWin) and

visualised on Google Earth. Loggers will be provided by the organisers. Of course, you may also use your own

AFLOS logger.

We are convinced that we can provide excellent training conditions at an unrivalled price, namely FREE OF

CHARGE, and all this in a relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful region, provided that the weather gods are

smiling upon us ☺

We are particularly grateful to "Schweizerischer Motorflugverband" and "Bundeskommission Motorflug im

Deutschen Aero Club" for their support and sponsorship!

As always, pilots, navigators and volunteers from Germany, Luxembourg and Austria, etc. are very welcome.

2. What is it all about?

Precision Flying (PF)

Precision flying in light aircraft is the "aerial equivalent of the sport of orientation race". It is not the speed that

counts, but precision. The aim of precision flying is to improve airmanship and flying skills in basic VFR

navigation and accurate landing. PF also helps the pilot to improve his/her skills in coordinating various tasks

during flight. It is interesting to see how the stress which occurs when performing various tasks can be reduced

through continuous training. When precision flying is performed as a two-crew operation, efficient distribution of

tasks between pilot and navigator is another valuable aspect which makes this sport an extraordinary team

experience. In addition to enjoying team spirit and new challenges, aviators involved in precision flying can

enhance their flying and navigational skills considerably. Thus, precision flying is making an active contribution

to improving flight safety!

It is recommended – especially for nowcomers – to fly PF as a team (pilot/navigator).

Air Navigation Race (ANR)

Air Navigation Racing is a relatively new air sport which was launched by the FAI's General Aviation

Commission. Within a given time, the aircraft have to fly along predetermined corridors without leaving it or

touching the "virtual walls". It's good fun - try it out for yourself!

ANR is exclusively flown in teams (pilot/navigator).

Just like Aerobatics and Rally Flying, Precision Flying and Air Navigation Racing are FAI recognised air sports


Further details on Precision Flying and the Air Navigation Race, including applicable rules and regulations, are

available at → Dokumente

3. Conditions of participation

Although a solo discipline, we recommend that first-time PF entrants fly with a navigator. ANR, however, is a

two-crew operation, so all routes must be flown with a pilot and a navigator. In both disciplines, the navigator

need not necessarily hold a pilot's licence.

All participants (pilots, navigators and volunteers) are kindly requested to schedule their arrival time to

coordinate with the 11.15 a.m. opening briefing to be held at Donaueschingen Airfield on Friday, 5 Mai 2017,

or with the 08.15 a.m. Precision Flying ground school lesson.

In case of delays, participants are kindly requested to contact the organisers immediately!

(cf. Item 8)

It goes without saying that timely registration is required either

a) by using the attached entry form or

b) by registering online (via → News & Events)

Ensimmäinen laatuaan, muodostelmataitolennon kisa (jonka kiinalaiset sitten muuttivat tapahtumaksi, mutta kisataan silti - ilman FAIn mitaleja) jonka FAI tunnustaa 2.kategorian kisaksi, on parin viikon päästä Kiinasta. Kolmen hengen delegaatiolla Suomesta, allekirjoittanut tuomariavustajana. Mukana kokeneita taitolentoryhmiä Euroopasta, Etelä-Afrikasta, Australiasta ja Venäjältä.


Jännä nähdä millainen tapahtuma ja miten järjestelyt sujuvat. 


World Games on sitten heinäkuussa 20.-30.7. Puolassa ja mukana ilmailun puolelta ovat purjetaitolento, paragliding ja canopy piloting (kertokoot ne lisää jotka lajit paremmin tuntevat). Kutsukilpailu, eikä Suomesta ole edustajia ainakaan taitolennossa. Tietääkö joku onko varjoliidon tai hyppääjien puolelta?

Trans-Atlantic Flying Expedition, 20-30 June 2017


Prepare2go will be taking a group of small planes (and microlights) across the Pond from the UK to Canada (and USA) this June.  Leaving Wick, Scotland on the 20th June, we'll arrive in Montreal on the 30th - plenty of time to then enter the US and continue to OshKosh for those who wish.


Our route is completely inefficient!  We use our unparalleled local contacts in Iceland, Greenland and Canada to use strips that are normally not permitted.  This allows us both to limit the maximum distance to just 350nm, as well as to visit the more beautiful and undiscovered locations. In Greenland, we plan to make an additional flight out to (and landing at for those who wish) Bluie East Two - closed at the end of World War II.  BE2 is a fascinating place, still displaying enormous quantities of debris left behind when the ferrying of bombers to Europe ended.


Our route in Canada takes us way into the arctic circle where the sun never sets (in itself an experience) and to tiny Eskimo villages where nobody ever goes.  We'll be using tiny dirt strips and overflying icebergs and plane wrecks from the 1950s. Our expedition terminates in Montreal - but we'll help with all the paperwork and procedures for the US for anyone wanting to go further.  We will also help for the return - either independently with remote support or as a group again with our group leader.


There is much more at:


The adventure of a lifetime?  Very possibly. Fly the Atlantic with Prepare2go - it's going to be awesome!


PS Whilst most people are bringing their own plane, we have some owners looking for a co-pilot to share costs - so even if you don't have a plane it may be possible.
