Tannkosh 2009: Every hundredth pilot a winner

ID: 1001564

One by one, the aircraft approach and land on the grass runway. Single-engines, twin-engines, modern model aircraft as well as classic and vintage aircraft, helicopters and warbirds reach the annual aircraft event in Tannheim second by second. Every hundredth pilot who has landed will be lucky to win an electronic pilot's logbook. This year, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH will hold a draw for the recently published “Aviator eLogbook” from 17 to 19 July in Tannkosh.

(firmenpresse) -
Every hundredth pilot is determined by the computer upon registration in the Red Bull visitors' tent. He will receive a winning ticket which he may present at the DFS stand to collect the CD-ROM. The “Aviator eLogbook” makes it possible to digitally document flight times. This electronic logbook is in line with the Joint Aviation Requirements and offers various extra functions.

In Tannkosh, DFS will provide information about its aeronautical publications and products which may be ordered directly, free of shipping costs. At the stand, customers may take a closer look at the "Visual 500" chart series for navigation in many of Germany's neighbouring countries. This series of chart corresponds to the German ICAO chart in terms of format, which means that pilots do not need to get used to a different layout. A look at the "Cross Border Information" manual for flights to other European countries is also worthwhile.

At the DFS stand in Tannkosh, pilots will be informed about how to file flight plans and how the Flight Information Service (FIS) works. Herwart Goldbach will hold numerous presentations, for example about crossing military airspaces, glider areas and approaches to and departures from airports in class E airspaces. The head of the Flight Information Service in Langen will also give hints on radiotelephony and explain the importance of using transponders. "Leisure pilots often do not know in which situations FIS is able to help. We therefore seek direct contact to pilots", says Goldbach who has been a pilot for many years.

The presentation "Sicher durch den Luftraum" (safely through airspace) will take place on the following days: Friday, 17 July, 11:00, 14:30 and 17:30 hrs, Saturday, 18 July, 11:15 and 15:15 hrs, Sunday, 19 July, 11:00 hrs
