Glider Towing at Glocknerhof, Carinthia
F-tow in spring and autumn
The already traditional Glider Towing Week takes place every year in spring and offers professionals as well as novices enough time to exchange experiences among like-minded people. For autumn, in addition, the towing days were created. Join in.
Model aerotow on holidays
Every year, model airplane pilots travel with gliders and tow planes to the Drautal Valley for a joint F-tow. In addition, flight instructor and tow pilot Marco is on the field the whole week and tows with the 3.6 m Swisstrainer and the 4 m Cessna 180 from the Glocknerhof in the morning and in the afternoon until everyone has had enough. In between, you can relax on the sun loungers or take a nap on the grass. In the afternoon there is a little break and boss Adolf comes with coffee and cake directly to the airfield.
