LEONARDO Hannover Airport, Petzelstr. 60, 30669 Hannover


Tickets: 50 €/£45 each (including welcome drink and buffet)

This year’s the Annual Dinner will take place in a conference room of the LEONARDO Hotel directly at Hanover Airport. It starts with a welcome drink from 6pm and continues with the traditional program (dinner/speeches/award ceremonies/raffle) and open end.

Rooms can also be booked in the same building: until 04.09.2024, a contingent of 10 single rooms and 10 double rooms is reserved there for the overnight stay from 05.10 to 06.10 at the price of 96,–€ / 116,–€ per night including breakfast buffet.

Please book your room directly to LEONARDO Hannover Airport under the keyword “Vintage Glider Club” or “Klemmer”.

Rooms can also be rented directly on the airport at the Maritim Airport Hotel. Other accommodation options exist in the surrounding districts (e.g. Langenhagen) and of course also in the city centre of Hanover (it is best to research under

The subway runs from the airport to the main train station every 30 minutes until 03.00 in the morning (journey time approx. 18 minutes).

On Friday evening, 04.10.2024 at 7pm, a rendezvous dinner will take place in the restaurant of the LEONARDO Hannover Airport Hotel – if you are interested, please register in advance by 04.09.2024 at so that a large table can be reserved.

On Saturday time to be confirmed), there will be the opportunity to take part in a guided tour in English and German through the Laatzen-Hannover Aviation Museum (price to be confirmed). The Aviation Museum is located south of the city, the LEONARDO Hotel north of the city (distance between both locations approx. 35 minutes by car; 70 minutes by public transport). Of course, there are alternatively many sights in and outside the city – and within the airport itself. Suggestions can be found on the VGC webside under events / Annual Dinner.

If several people would like to get together for individual excursion destinations, this can be coordinated on request, then please let us know at

Please also use this e-mail address for registrations for participation in the Annual Dinner as well as for the guided tour of the Aviation Museum Laatzen-Hannover.

Last but not least: whether it will be possible to visit the Oppershausen glider airfield near Celle on Sunday, 06.10., and also to fly there (distance from Hanover approx. 45 km), depends primarily on the weather (and of course city tours can also be continued on Sunday).
