During the flight
In the cockpit, the 2m distance rule cannot be adhered to due to the limited space available. Face masks must therefore always be worn.
Pilots and passengers who live together in the same household are exempt from the mask requirement in the cockpit as long as no third party is on board.
Face masks or other hygiene measures must not hinder the crew (pilot) at work. If difficulties arise in flight with the masks that endanger the safe conduct of the flight (e.g. restricted vision, communication difficulties between the crew or with ATC, fogged glasses, hindrance to breathing), the crew may take off the breathing masks.
During taxi, if possible leave the cockpit hood, doors or windows open or bring them into the intended position (e.g. DA40).
During the flight, fresh air inlets are to be opened if possible (left and right equally strong) in order to allow a large amount of fresh air to enter the cockpit.
Disinfectants may not be carried in the cockpit due to flammability / fire and the risk of evaporation / drowsiness.
After the flight
During taxi, if possible, leave the cockpit hood or doors or windows open or bring them into the intended position (e.g. DA40).
After the flight, the non-personal headsets and the controls in the aircraft must be disinfected by the crew.
The flight group Schupfart, Silvergoose and the Birrfeld airfield provide plastic-friendly cleaning supplies and cleaning towels for the headsets for the club’s own aircraft. The use of other cleaning supplies is strictly prohibited. Cleaning supplies and towels can be found with the cleaning items in the hangar. They are marked accordingly.
Face masks and disposable gloves are disposed of by the users themselves in a resealable container. The corresponding containers are made available and are labeled accordingly. They are emptied daily by instructed staff.
In the debriefing room there are max. 2 people allowed, the 2m rule must be applied at all times.
