Richard-Schütze-Wettfahrt 2024

Dear Gas Balloonists, dear Club!

This year we are again inviting you to the Richard-Schütze-Wettfahrt. We would like all participants to have the opportunity for a longer flight again. However, we do not want to tempt anyone with a scoring landing, for example, to land in unfavourable conditions. Therefore, the scoring will be done with the help of the GPS data recording and the scoring for the race can also be finished in the air and the ride can be continued afterwards as the pilot pleases. If the flight starts on Saturday evening as planned, we will set the task in such a way that it is possible to land before the start of the thermal on the other day, but not necessary.

With the participation in the race, as well as with individual starts from Bitterfeld, there is the possibility of the possibility of receiving a medal from the „Bitterfeld Chain“ as an award. And of course, the flight can also be scored for the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Jungius-Cup for gas balloons if desired.
