Introduction

I had my first flight in a glider plane at the age of 14. From that day I was addicted to flying, spending every free day on the airstrip to built up flight hours. After finishing school I could fulfill my dream and became an airliner pilot.
After more than 10.000 hours of commercial flying I still love to be in the air - even in my free time. 
Paragliding offers to me the perfect combination of sport, challenge and adventure. 
In 2014 I flew my first bigger XC flights which became a real passion since then. XC flying is like a big chess game in nature - planning new routes, thinking what might be possible and try it out. The way back when bombing out somewhere far away from the next street can also be a rewarding adventure. Be open minded, try something new and you can experience a lot !
