Pilot's pages


The first contact with beeing in the air, paraglide, seeing new perspectives and the feeling of being
free that comes with, I got in autumn of 2003 on a tandem with one of my best and oldest friends
Patrick in upper Austria.
It was an amazing experience and the initalizing for my own flying career.
At the beginning it was just the flying and the feeling of beeing in the air. After some time it was the
combination between hiking and flying.
Now i try to live the final step, in combination with XC-flying.
I love doing and practicing this sport, because I’m able to feel the spririt of nature during this time.
Altogether i like to travel with my wing to new areas and to explore the world from the best view a
human has ever taken before, and if it`s possible, in combination with XC flying and my best air
buddies e.g. Raimund Trummer.
