That was it!

The Piper meeting 2014 is over. Despite the still very mixed weather in Germany and Europe , 93 aircrafts (70 PA-18 / J3C and 23"guest aircrafts") of the 183 registered aircraft (123 PA-18 or J3C and 60 "guest aircrafts”) attended to the Piper meeting.

Unfortunately I had to cancel the flights to Kiel, Wyk and Nordborg due bad weather.
Due heavy rain and thunderstorms the flights could not be performed - safety first.

The prize for the best looking PA-18 / J3C won the crew Patrick Kaufmann and Father Joseph with their J3C / L-4, HB-ALP.

The prices for the three longest approaches with a PA-18 / J3C went to:

1.OE-AFCPA-18-95Martin SkacelZeltweg, Austria859,33 km
2.G-HACKPA-18-150Simon Harris, Richard StowOaksey Park, England829,70 km
3.HB-ODHJ3C-65/L-4Cornel Zemp, Miriam KappelerKägiswil, Switzerland818,58 km

The longest flight of all participants came from Graz in Austria. In difficult weather, the crew Christof Fischer and co-pilot covered 901.92 km flight to Rendsburg with their PA-12.

I would like to thank everyone who supported the Piper meeting.

I hope we'll see you all at the Piper Meeting 2015 in Jena.

Always happy landings,
Rolf Wittorf
