Arne Martin Güettler ??
D-3 before the first official race of this 1st Virtual Sailplane Grand Prix - World Final 2021 !
Arne Martin had a fairly late start, experiencing his first glider flight at the age of 32. He then quickly caught on, and used Condor a lot to learn and practice. Two years later, with 110 real life gliding hours, and about 1000 Condor hours he entered his first real life Norwegian Gliding Championship, and got a great start, winning the first contest day ! He managed to keep his lead throughout the contest and won on his debut !
From then he has establishing himself as one of the top Norwegian pilots, with a total of 2 gold and 3 silver in the Norwegian championships he has entered.
He is also a very talented pilot in Condor, and usually ends up in the top 5 of the biggest Condor competitions, including an overall win.
Arne Martin particularly enjoys flying in the mountains, both in his native Norway, but also in expeditions to amongs other places the French Alps and New Zealand. So St Auban and the task area will be familar to him, after several real life visits there.
You can follow and support him everyday with the competition starting on the 5th of September.
