New allegations shake the ADAC. According to media information, ADAC President Peter Meyer is said to have used the rescue helicopter to travel to events - but all on account.
Again new allegations against the ADAC: Autoclub President Peter Meyer used ADAC air rescue helicopters to travel to events. The ADAC confirmed corresponding information from the "Stern". "According to the ADAC statutes, the Presidium may use reserve machines for air rescue in justified exceptional cases," said ADAC spokesman Christian Garrels on Friday in Munich. This only happened for official ADAC appointments. "In no case was a helicopter used for private purposes," said the spokesman.
The chairman of the Bundestag transport committee, Martin Burkert (SPD), called on the ADAC for “maximum transparency”. Even if such flights may not be legally objectionable, from a moral point of view the processes are questionable, he told the "Handelsblatt Online" (Friday). The club has been criticized since tampering with the “Gelber Engel” car price became known.
Künast calls for a change of direction at ADAC
Green politician Renate Künast, chairwoman of the Bundestag consumer committee, spoke out in favor of a change in leadership at ADAC. "Customers and members have the right to have a different management set up," she said of the "Stuttgarter Zeitung" (Saturday) and also criticized the business flights. "Rescue helicopters are supposed to save lives and not give a president a comfortable working life," she said. "The non-profit air rescue is not a travel agency."
Car expert Ferdinand Dudenhöffer told the broadcaster n-tv: "Things are coming to light that show that the ADAC is very intransparent in its structure, that this structure is strange and that it no longer fits into our times at all."
ADAC spokesman Garrels told the dpa news agency: "Everything is billed and verifiable and regulated in black and white in our statutes". Luftrettung GmbH invoices ADAC eV for such flights. This is also cheaper than renting a helicopter from a third party. According to the information, the flights were billed at full cost.
