Gliding Training - Aero Sport - Accommodation - Relaxation - Fun

The "Haus der Luftsportjugend e.V.", briefly called "HdL", is a school for gliding, youth-educational institution and lodge at once. It is located at the airfield in Laucha at the river Unstrut in Saxony-Anhalt, centrally located in Germany. 

Already the youngsters in aero sports start here at the HdL with the building of remote control planes, followed by the art of gliding and later maybe even courses in glider aerobatics. 

Our lodge accommodates participants not only during vacations, the event "AIRlebnis" or the remote control plane holidays, but is available for all guests also during short trips at all other times, too.

For experienced pilots it is possible to acquire their gliding teaching qualification, gain experience in cross-country gliding, learn to steer a motor glider or an ultra light plane.

Moreover, it is possible to organise summer camps for pilots at the HdL. Besides the lodge, there is also a camp ground with access to sanitary facilities and a kitchen. The Thuringian forest, Fläming and the Harz are quickly reached, which means that the airstrip in Laucha with its slope and the close distance to these areas offers outstanding conditions for cross-country gliding. Winch launching as well as aero-towing are always possible at the HdL. 

More practice oriented ones are better off in the various courses for workshop supervisors and/or technicians. Do you favor a course for parachute rigger? The HdL covers all areas around aero sports. 

Moreover, the area with Thuringian forest, Harz or the famous cities of Leipzig and Weimar offers several touristic attractions for rainy days or accompanying persons and families. 

We are looking forward to your stay!
