Welcome to DLV

Welcome to DLV

An aeroclub for everyone

The Dithmarscher Luftsportverein e.V. is one of the largest flying clubs in Schleswig-Holstein. We welcome everyone who is interested in flying. At the moment roughly 240 members are engaged in the sections gliding and engine powered flights. Some members do ultra light flights. DLV members are of all ages and professions.

Flying is not only an individual experience. Team spirit is needed especially for gliding but also the social events like joint excursions, festivities or employment of labour create positive experience within the group.

Since 1997 the DLV is the owner of the airfield St. Michaelisdonn. With the acquisition the club has undertaken the task to keep the airfield alive as necessary infrastructural facility for trade and tourism in the region and to increase its attractiveness. Essential part in order to achieve this is also the DLV flight school where committed honorary instructors make it possible to get a private pilot licence at reasonable costs. The modern fleet ( gliders / engine powered - German text ) is maintained in the club's own aviation workshop.

Beside the "daily life" at EDXM the club organizes special public events like the annual airshow and hangar concerts and participates in events organized by the local tourist agencies.

Furthermore we offer to different groups the possibility to use our clubhouse and parts of the airfield for festivities and we cooperate with local schools during their project weeks.

We are open for any request and try to offer whatever is feasible.
