My friend Stephan Kluencker in Germany, long time glider instructor, was so nice to inspect the planes in the Netherlands. After he gave me such a positive feedback about the planes, I got very excited and bought them right away. Stefan towed the Ka-7 and the president of the Dutch club towed the Ka-8 to my German hometown Hamm.
My friends from my home club were willing to pack them into a 40ft container. They did a great job!! Glider pilots are a great bunch of people.
In February 2008 the gliders arrived in Manila. The International Hot Air Balloon Festival was on and I managed to display at least the Ka-8. Nobody knows anything about gliders in this country. We really start from zero. I stored the gliders in my local hangar of the Angeles City Flying Club, the home of my Fascination and center of leisure aviation here in the Philippines.
Since February 2009 all the planes (Ka-7, Ka-8 and Fascination) are stationed in the new hanger in Nampicuan.
