Vereinigung Aktiver Piloten e.V.

On March 9th, 1980, we joined forces to form the Association of Active Pilots, a not-for-profit association. The VAP pilots and flight instructors are attached to aviation by passion. Many have their own historical aircraft, which are tirelessly self-maintained, restored and flown. This makes the VAP so unique and leads to the trainee pilot not only learning how to fly properly – i.e. in a thorough, well-founded and correct manner – but also to understand what "proper flying" means.

Luftsportring Grenzland e.V. Nordhorn

We are a gliding club at Nordhorn-Lingen (EDWN) with about 60 active members. Of these, nine are volunteer flight instructors who teach our flying students to fly. We meet every weekend and on holidays at the aerodrome and we’re building up our start-up. The flight season begins in March and ends in October. But we meet also meet regularly in winter to repair the craft, to maintain the club or to carry out other work. Gliding is a team sport, because only by working together do you get the craft in the air.
