Team iP3 is the day's winner in the Open Class
Saturday, 21. May 2022 - 22:50

We have new results in the Open Class!
Pierre and Arnaud de Broqueville win the Open Class daily classification.


The team with the starting number "iP3" has not only been an integral part of the Open Class for many years, but also a long-standing sponsor of the Hahnweidew competition.

This year, the prize for the fastest driver will be offered again. The winner will receive a case of exclusive organic wine with the beautiful hand-painted design. It is worth taking a look at the lovingly designed homepage of 'WIGNAC' with its delicious fruit varieties!


A challenging day
Saturday, 21. May 2022 - 18:58

As already announced, many participants were not able to complete the challenging task for the weather today.

In the standard class, 6 pilots managed to complete the task. The fastest was Valentin Leleu-Lambour (ZT) from France on LS8 with almost 93 km/h.

In the 15m class, 7 pilots received a time score. The day's winner was Timothy Scott (Z3) from Great Britain with 80.5 km/h, flown with a 15m variant of the ASG29. (left picture)

Z3   MAX


In the 18m class, 4 of the 37 participants managed to complete the task. Third place went to Christian Maex from LSC Burg Feuerstein. He flew the almost 300km with 80.5 km/h on an "AS 33 Es" with matching competition registration "MÄX". (Photo right) The winner was probably Wolfgang Janowitsch from Austria, second one Bert Schmelzer from Belgium.

The open class is still being evaluated. According to the current status, none of the pilots managed to fly the task. Currently, the English are in the lead in the kilometre ranking.

The two-seater class also had to cancel completely due to the weather. The longest distance was flown by Team Norbert Sommer on Arcus M with 253km.


The ranking is still provisional, as not all flight data could be read out yet. Changes are possible.

Unfortunately, most of those who flew pure gliders without auxiliary engines had to land outside. We wish the pilots and their crews a quick and successful recovery.

Some pilots didn't finished the task

We already have final approaches. However, some pilots aborted the task and had to come back without a time score. A look at the score will clarify the situation afterwards.

Live tracking available

Dear participants, dear spectators. While you are waiting for the final approaches, you can follow the pilots live on your PC HERE. There are 2 tracking systems available for each class. Have fun and good entertainment!

Live tracking of 15m class at 3:20 p.m.


Some pilots have already completed the first turn point in the west and are on their way towards Herbrechtingen.
If things continue to go well, we can possibly expect the first final approaches starting at 4.30 pm.

Let's go!
Saturday, 21. May 2022 - 11:53

 The first pilots of the 15m class have just taken to the air. We wish the pilots a good flight!


First take-off expected at 12:00
Saturday, 21. May 2022 - 09:47

Meteorologist Jupp gives us hope for a good flying day with cloud base up to 2000m. However, we will probably have quite strong winds at altitude. 


All tasks lead along the Swabian Alb. The length of the tasks is around 250km.

This distance will be flown by the 15m class:

Welcome to the 54th International Hahnweide Competition
Friday, 20. May 2022 - 23:32

After a two year break, the time has finally arrived again! 105 teams from 13 countries have arrived to participate in this very popular international gliding.

About 2/3 of the participants came from overseas. This year again we have several European and World Champion pilots. The event will be flown in 5 competition classes. The 18m class is the most represented with 37 gliders.

Probably the biggest surprise of this evening: This year the Hahnweide has for the first time a female competition director!


Laura Maciej, who has been for many years in charge of the organization of the competition behind the scenes, takes over from Reinhard Diez. Together with sport director Rainer Rauch and meteorologist Jupp (Dr. Josef Dahlem) they are at the top of the organization.

The briefing for the 1st competition day will take place tomorrow at 10 a.m.

We wish all participants and crews a good start and an fantastic week with best weather conditions.

Some pictures of the evening HERE.
