New member from The Netherlands

Post by erikvanderkooij » 17 Sep 2019, 18:26


My name is Erik van der Kooij. I've been flying and building model airplanes for over 35 years now (since I was 12 or so). Still enjoying the hobby together with my father. The last years I mainly focus on flying gliders. My own fleet now consists of an ASW15 (5m); Swift (4m) TwinAstir (4,5m) ASH26 FES (4,5m) and a few smaller toys ;)
I love to read all the beautiful building threads, When I find more time I hope to start building again!
Kind regards from The Netherlands.

Hello Erik, as the Netherlands is predominantly flat, where do you go to fly from the slope?
