The world of the model aircraft enthusiast Frans

With a glider, making the most of a thermal is all about getting your aircraft as high as possible. According to Frans Voskens, going up really high depends on doing a lot of flights to perfect the settings. And, for that, you need stable weather. A shower isn't such a big deal – what matters most is the wind. If the forecast is for force 5 or stronger, open-air flying isn't really an option in the Netherlands. In such a crowded country, model aircraft enthusiasts have to use quite small airfields. So, if the wind gets up, it's very likely that you'll find yourself retrieving your glider from a tree. Not a happy outcome! Frans and his fellow enthusiasts therefore keep a close eye on buienradar.nl whenever they are planning a flight.

SIDN works with more than 1,400 registrars to make sure that everyone can always reach Buienradar.nl – and 5.5 million-plus other .nl domains – from anywhere in the world. We keep the .nl domain stable and secure.
