Alfoldi Cup 2022
I'm Takeshi Maruyama from Japan. I lived in Tokyo and flying in Japan. I flew several gliding competition in Europe every year. This is the 4th time to visit to Szatymaz airfiled (2017, 2018, 2019, 2022). Last 2 years due to Covid-19, I could not come to Hungary.
Why I came to Satymaz regulary ? Richard Basa, he rented me his glider several times, and he invited me to this very nice friendly competition ! This competition is very well organized, very nice airfiled and very delicious dinner and breakfast. I was welcomed by many kind people and made many good friends. I talked with other competition pilots and asked many things about gliding. I feel this airfield is like a home club in Hungary for me.
I would like to express my gratitude to Peter Szabo, who organize this airfiled, and club members and Hungarian pilots.
I look forward to seeing you next year, too. See you in Szatymaz !
