"You probably already know the following link, if not find it useful to find GPS coordinates for any point."

The link is not yet known, we are happy about it!

Our headquarters has just increased the crew, since today 1:29 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. we have hired staff for the long haul:

- Leonhard, all bills, swarm of girls
- Barbara, chief pilot of the Heini-Air simulator fleet

Since the slot time itself was only taken for October, but "all engines running" is the order of the day, we are currently still a bit on the ramp waiting for the going home clearance. However, there is enough fuel, "running out of fuel" is impossible, says our Ms. CEO.

Kind regards, Heini

Meeting of the YAHOOligansThursday, 08/30/2001, 10:00 a.m.

The members of the powered flight mailing list meet for the first time to get to know each other personally. We no longer need to present the list of powered flights here because there are already two articles about it "anyway" (see archive).

The first meeting will take place on Friday, September 7th, 2000 from 6:30 p.m., the first "venue" is Stockerau. This is an excellent match, as on this day the equipment for the Pink Boogie event is already alive and can be shared. So draft beer and grill shouldn't be a problem. The entire premises at the airfield are available.

The program includes lectures ("Human factors" by Dr. David Gabriel and Dr. Husek, descriptions and reports on flying in America from members of the mailing list) and cozy get-togethers.

Our special thanks go to our Reinhold Hofer, who made himself available as the "man of the evening". You can turn to him with all your questions and worries that arise during the event. Whether it is the organization of aids or whether your Reinhold needs "as an airport guide" or as a living "LOAU know-how", he knows everything!

(Not yet) members should be told that they are also very welcome!

Vienna (vwd / APA) - The former Vice President of Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), Stockholm, Vagn Sörensen, is to become the new CEO of Austrian Airlines AG (AUA), Vienna. The personnel committee of the AUA supervisory board decided this unanimously, AUA supervisory board chairman Johannes Ditz announced on Monday. This decision of the committee is a recommendation for the supervisory board meeting on September 27, at which the new AUA board of directors is to be formally appointed.

The AUA, previously headed by two board members, is to be run by a four-person committee in the future. In addition to the CEO, a CFO and a commercial officer, who should be responsible for the optimal positioning of the AUA Group within the Star Alliance, should move into the board. A Chief Operating Officer (COO) will be responsible for fleet optimization within the AUA Group.

Regarding the economic situation of AUA, Ditz said that he could not identify a case of restructuring. "We are in a tense situation, but AUA has absolute strengths in quality and service," added Ditz. The new board should bring the classification as "Friendly Airline" into effect. Measures are undoubtedly required on the cost side.

Unfortunately, now that it is beautiful and there is a lot of flying, the series of accidents does not end. As you have probably already heard / seen in the media and on the radio, both the pilot and the passenger of the aircraft were killed in today's disaster.

We mourn once again for two comrades, the editors of FSV2000.AT express their heartfelt condolences to the relatives.

After a few days of the summer slump, I am completely amazed that another contribution is coming in. The "SITTING IN THE SHADOW" and "SWEATING" doesn't do us all very well. In addition, I am now hopefully over the "prenatal laziness phase of expectant fathers" ...

But a break doesn't do anything. There was a lot of news about the AUA and other airlines including stock market ups and downs, but these topics shouldn't be too dominant on our side. So I would be delighted if you send articles about general aviation and especially about us to Stockerauer.

I am all the more pleased with the activity of our glider pilots.

Oh yes, there is the interesting article by Ernst Cerny, I left it behind again, sorry, but now it is online - about a motor glider from Brazil, of the Ximanga type.
