SOARING

European championships in Hammelburg, Bavaria -82

I started flying in 1973, in Blekinge Aeroclub. From -82 my homeclub has been Jönköpings Soaringclub. Participated in my first competition -76, and became a member of the national team -80 to -91. Here are some results:

1:st place, Swedish Championships. -80.
1:st place, Swedish Junior Championships. -80.
5:th place, Open Italian Championships -81.
1:st place, Swedish Championships. -82.
9:th place, European Championships in Germany. -82.
1:st place, Swedish Championships. -83.
1:st place, Swedish Championships. -87.
5:th place, European Championships in France. -87.
6:th place, European Championships in Finland. -88.
6:th place, Baltic cup in Lithuania -89.
 
3:d place in Swedish Championships -06, small comeback for fun.

From 1991-92 I have reduced the activity, and now I only fly occasionaly. Other activities has taken over instead (see sailing).


The cirrus Charlie Three was bought -78, and gave me many nice moments in the air. Furthermore it gave me one of my victories in the swedish championships and a 5:th place in the european championships.


During the years -88 to -92 I flew Hotel Foxtrot, a Mininimbus with a little better performance. Lovely to fly! Here it is seen in front of Charlie 3, who stayed in the club for a while.
