In 1811, a man in Germany, more precisely in Ulm, dared to do what seemed to be unimaginable at that time: He tried to fly. Not with a Balloon, but with wings like a bird. Albrecht Ludwig Berblinger was known as the “Tailor of Ulm”. Berblinger has been smiled and mocked for his project but the German King wanted to know what it was about with this strange inventor and his even stranger flying object. One Day Berblinger, observed by a lot of spectators, stood on the bank of the Danube with his hang glider trying to fly over the river. Unfortunately the try wasn’t crowned with great success ending up in the river. After all, a start was made.
Today – 250 Years later – we are flying for one thousand and more kilometers a day in our modern Sailplanes. Whether your Ambitions are long distance flights, competitions or just beautiful flying Holidays, we at glider charter provide you with such a modern Sailplane.
