45th Women’s Soaring Seminar
Uebersberg, Pfullingen, Germany
July 3rd through 7th, 2023
About our glider port Uebersberg:
The Uebersberg is located on 048°27’33” North, 009°17’55” East, in an exposed position on the ridge of the Schwäbische Alb, close to the towns Reutlingen, the population of 116, 000 and Pfullingen, 20, 000, about 30 miles south of Stuttgart, 635, 000 inhabitants. Stuttgart with its international Airport is the capital of our southwestern German state Baden Württemberg. Delta offers direct flights from Atlanta to Stuttgart. From Stuttgart Airport it takes only a one hour drive to the Uebersberg. A special feature of our glider port is the Winch launch. This is a very fast and cheap (€ 8,-) way to get up into the air. Within 30 seconds, pilots sometimes are released directly into the house thermals.
Soaring Conditions in our region
The Swabian Alb is a limestone – mountain range that spreads out about 140 miles between black forest and the upper Neckar in the northeast and the Danube in the southeast. The ridge mountains range from 400 to 1100 m in elevation and provide excellent thermaling conditions. Cross country flights from here to the black forest (quite frequently!), along the Danube-Valley to the east, or sometimes even to the Alps are possible.
Uebersberg has two landing fields on grass and is only licensed for gliders, motor-gliders, and ultralight aircrafts.
