Vintage and Retro Gliding week Ålleberg/Sweden 2024

July 6 - July 14

SVS, Segelflygets Veteransällskap in Sweden invites you to Ålleberg 2024 from July 6 to July 14. We welcome you all! With or without vintage or retro-gliders (1955-1970)!  We fly and have fun every day during this week. Daily briefing at 9 AM at the gliding museum.

The venue is Ålleberg, near Falköping between the two  big lakes Vänern and Vättern. Swedens ancient hilltop gliding site was inaugurated in 1941 and it is still the home of the Swedish Soaring  Federations office and gliding instructor courses as well as aerobatic and cloud flying endorsements. It also houses  our fantastic glidermuseum and a separate private vintage and retroglider collection. We have on site simple accomodation in single and double rooms and a camping site with electricity as well as sauna, restaurant and above all, our fantastic nature.

The grass airstrip of 700 m is 100 m above the plain and allows for good  slope fsoaring in W-NW wind. Thermal conditions are also good and there are plenty of outlandingfields available. We fly mostly aerotow but occasionally we also launch by winch. There may be some limited hangarspace available. Radio is not mandatory in our area and airspace is free up to FL 95.

We would love to see you with or without your own glider. From the continent there are several routes and ferries, we recommend  either the ferry-way Puttgarden-Rödby and then Helsingör-Helsingborg or the bridges way via Stora  Bält (Denmark) and Copenhagen-Malmö but there are others.
