    Jets over Norway 2016

    For now the 7th time the biggest Scandinavian Flight Event "Jets over Norway" took place in early June. Perfect flying weather conditions with - for this time of the year unusual 22 -25 degrees- summer welcomed us on the fantastic airfield in Fyresdal. 65 pilots with over 100 jets had joined in the four days of the event. Because of the brief nocturnal darkness flying started early in the morning at 8am and ended late evening at 11pm - more than 1,600 liters of kerosene have been converted into flying fun. As an highlight this year Robert and Sebastian Fuchs and Tim Stadler with their 3 AIRWORLD F 104 "Starfighters" and their Red Bull Ultimates presented their perfect formation program first time to the public - actively supported by their announcer Bernd Kneidl.
    Many thanks to our Norwegian friends for the warm welcome, the relaxed atmosphere at the airfield and in the short remaining night hours. Special thanks to Trond Hammerstad who oversees as chief organizer this event with impressive power and energy. Thanks to his initiative even national TV with an OB van and lots of cameras transferred one hour LIVE from the airfield.
    For all of us it was a unique experience - again :)
    We look forward to 2017 - when the slogan is again: Start your engines and fly like hell!

    3rd radial engine meeting in Untermünkheim 2013

    Hello radial engine friends!
    After we had already experienced a great MFC Untermünkheim event in 2011, it was clear that we would visit the radial engine meeting in 2013 as well. Although the number of participants was a little smaller this time due to the weather, all pilots had a lot of fun demonstrating their model and engines.
    As always well organized, we were able to experience an interesting weekend under the leadership of Elke and Andreas Heilemann and enjoy the incomparable engine sound of the radial engines.
    Thanks again to all pilots and the MFC team for this great event !!
    See you next year!
    Your AIRWORLD team Hans-Dieter and Armin.

    IGG meeting 2012

    On January 4th the annual IGG meeting took place in Sprendlingen near Frankfurt (IGG stands for interest group tall sailplane). In the middle of winter, the IGG community met for a relaxed get-together and to talk shop about new projects and events for the coming season. After a delicious lunch, Bernd Straßburger and Günther Kiewel gave a review of the meetings they attended and the activities planned for 2012.
    We were there to present our two new projects ASW 15 on a scale of 1: 2.2 and DG 600 on a scale of 1: 2 to the expert audience and to capture initial reactions. It was fun to see old friends of the scene again and meet new people!
    Special thanks to Matthias Kerstan, Gerhard Birkl and Stefan Eyssen, who supported us with their cooperation in the scale expansion of the two hulls.
    Your AIRWORLD Team Hans-Dieter Reisert, Thomas Gleißner & Armin Schäfer

    Jets of Norway 2012

    In the second week of June it was that time again: After the first two great events Jets of Norway in 2010 and 2011 (see reports below under News), Tommy and I were again at our Norwegian friends.
    Once again, the event took place at the man-carrying airfield in Fyresdal in Telemark. With 35 pilots and 42 models, almost the entire Norwegian jet scene met again, only the B-gang from Bergen unfortunately canceled this year due to the bad weather forecast.
    Fortunately, the weather developed a lot better and so on three days jet flying was announced from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. It was only on Friday evening and Saturday morning that rain showers came over and over again, but the Norwegian jet pilots are tough guys. Obviously the same applies here: There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing - and so the flight continued without any problems even in the pouring rain!
    The flying level is extremely high - the guys here really have it. No wonder, because each of the pilots had at least 15 flights on it over the three days, the record was 29 flights (that's right - that's what the one who also flew in the rain!)
    Our thanks go once again to our Norwegian jet friends for the nice and always lovable way of practicing this great hobby together! Our special thanks go to the organizer, Trond Hammerstad: He always manages in his inimitable way to motivate jet friends and organize a great event. Incidentally, he also manages to fly his models himself, but also uses the student-teacher system to convey a share of his joy in jet flying to colleagues.Thank you for great days in Norway.
    Until Jetpower 2012 - there we meet our Norwegian friends again!
    Hans-Dieter & Tommy

    Horizon Airmeet 2012

    A great event with the top pilots of the European model flight scene was celebrated by Jörg Schamuhn's Horizon team on August 18th and 19th. Here are a few impressions from the Airmeet 2012 in Donauwörth.
    Many thanks from the AIRWORLD team especially to the MOKI pilots Andreas Gietz (P47), Franz Obenauf (P47 Razorback), Marc Hauss (Corsair) and Thomas Gleissner (Sea Fury), whose 250 MOKI engines provided the sound in their great warbirds. Franz Obenauf has installed a MOKI 400 in his large P47, which also harmonizes perfectly with this impressive model thanks to its engine sound.
    The demonstrations by Otto Widlroither with his Gee Bee R3, which he was able to stage more than impressively with the MOKI 400, were also spectacular! Special mention should also be made of Thomas Gleißner for the "fastest" landing with his Gee Bee R3! Many a viewer caught their breath here!
    Thanks also to Robert & Sebastian Fuchs from the Red Bull Team with their Aermacchis and Steven and Matt Bishop from the British Red Arrows Team with their BAe Hawks! Both teams showed perfect synchronous aerobatics with their AIRWORLD machines - it is always exciting what these pilots are able to do with their models!
    Many thanks also to Stefan Wurm and Jürgen Gollnow (get well soon !!!), who organized and supervised this event. We are happy that we could be there!
    Hans-Dieter Reisert and Thomas Gleißner


    JetPower fair 2012

    The JetPower trade fair in Bad Neuenahr had its 10th anniversary this year. As one of the few exhibitors who were there from the start, it was a very special honor for us to support Winfried Ohlgart and his JetPower team and to celebrate this anniversary appropriately with all pilots and spectators - it was just great !!
    I would particularly like to thank the pilots who have put our AIRWORLD models in the limelight and, also through their demonstrations, have made this trade fair one of the most interesting and worth visiting events for jet models worldwide.
    Many thanks to Robert and Sebastian Fuchs with their MB 339 in Red Bull Design, the RED's duo Steve and Matt Bishop from England with their Hawks, Trond Hammerstad from Norway with his English Electric Lightning and his inimitable smoke and fireworks show with the Hawk, Christian Lohwasser with his Hawk and Thomas Gleißner with the F-100, Albatros-L39 and our new product, the Skyrunner 300+.
    A big thank you also to all customers for visiting our booth!

    Jets of Norway 2011

    In the first week of June it was that time again:
    After the great first Jets of Norway in 2010, Tommy and I visited our Norwegian friends again. This time the event took place at a man-carrying airfield in Fyresdal in Telemark. With 39 pilots and 56 models, almost the entire Norwegian jet scene met for a great event in perfect weather. More than 1000 liters of kerosene were flown out on four days from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.! Yes - that's how long it has been light here in early summer - accordingly the short nights were used extensively for relaxation.
    We would like to thank all Norwegian jet friends, especially the B-gang, who had made the long way out of Bergen. Our special thanks go to the main organizer, Trond Hammerstad: He always manages in an inimitable way to motivate jet fans and organize a great event. Incidentally, he also manages to fly his own model, but also to convey to colleagues a share of his joy in jet flying through the student-teacher system.
    Thank you for great days in Norway. Until Jetpower 2011 - there we meet our Norwegian friends again!
    Your Hans-Dieter Reisert


    JET World Cup 2011 in Dayton

    Day 1:
    We received the boxes with the models on Monday without any damage and we have already had the first training flights behind us. Yesterday the first ones were in the construction evaluation and in the next hour the flight evaluation should also start. The weather means well to us, we have around 35 ° C outside temperature and a lot of wind that changes direction every hour.
    Day 2:
    We still have nice weather and have to sweat a lot every day at 35 ° C. We finished the construction appraisal last night and today only Roy and I have to fly. Then there are the first results of construction and 1st round. Gestures tomorrow when I got my plane out of the hangar, an important scale detail on my side oar had broken off. Through the field of participants, I ask myself whether someone has some material with them so that I can build a new pitot tube. When Vitaly Robertus from Team Russia arrived, he said to me Tommy don't worry me and my boys will quickly build a new one for you. It took about 2 hours and I had a new pitot tube in the finest design. You can see the result in the photos.
    Many thanks to Vitaly and his team !!!
    Day 3:
    Today we made it halfway through the second round. Heiko, Mark and Christian have already flown. Tomorrow Stephan will come first and in the afternoon Roy and me. Today we had difficult wind conditions so that flying was not easy for the boys. We should have finished the second round tomorrow evening.
    Day 4:
    Results from the 2nd run.
    Day 5:
    We finished the second round except for the best five. The best five will be in the final tomorrow morning! First comes Roy, then me and Stefan. It will be interesting again because everything is still possible up to the 2nd place.
    Day 6:
    We made it! The World Cup is over! We gave everything again in the final! Roy, Stefan and I did another flawless flight, now we have to wait until the award ceremony.
    => 4th place
    Greetings Tommy
