Alpine RC Gliding in Austria

Gliding with RC Gliders goes back more than 50 years in the Drautal. Back in the 1960s model aircraft pioneers put the fantastic thermal slopes of the Kreuzeck group to the test, especially on the Emberger Alm and the Oberberger Alm.

Once paraglider and hang glider pilots had discovered the area for themselves, the heavenly slopes on the Rottenstein overlooking Steinfeld became the meeting place for thermal gliders and hill soaring gliders.

On the RC aircraft airfields in the valley, electric gliders or tow aircrafts will be used to get your RC glider up in the air. If you also need a tow aircraft with a pilot outside the Aerotow Week, you can book a private aerotow-pilote for you, your friends or for a whole Model Flying Club.

You want to learn how to control RC gliders? You are interested in an advanced training for RC gliders with large gliders and lots of flaps? Just have a look to our RC flight school. We offer a wide variety of courses for beginners, advanced pilots, acrobatics and aerotow.

We can also recommend our Modell Aircraft Building and Repairing Service. Do you have a favourite model aircraft? We build it for you!
