Due to a lack of fuel, a pilot had to make an emergency landing with his light aircraft in Eichenberg on Tuesday evening. Nobody got hurt.

On Tuesday evening, a German pilot was flying a light aircraft from Friedrichshafen alone over the Bregenz district when the engine of the aircraft began to “stutter” presumably due to a lack of fuel and subsequently switched off completely.

The pilot was able to fly for a few more minutes without an engine until he discovered an open meadow area in Eichenberg and initiated an emergency landing there. He was able to emergency land the plane undamaged on the meadow.

No permission to start

No people were injured. After refueling by informed and arrived pilots of his aviation club, the engine could be started again without any problems. However, since Austro Control had not given take-off permission for the evening, the aircraft had to be left on the property.
