The advantage of being a TEAM PILOT

Last year we were happy to meet Christoph and Doris (from Austria) in Norway, during an XC competition. This year we decided to go to Rome the week before Easter – to meet Rinaldo who always is asking WHEN are you coming?! And now, when…

German Flatlands 2019 – Altes Lager – BERLIN

Die German Flatlands 2019 sind vorbei. Wetterbedingt konnten am Ende nur zwei Tasks geflogen werden. Der zweite gewertete Task (60km Race to Goal) war darum aber nicht weniger anspruchsvoll und spannend: Fluggelände “Altes Lager” bei Jüterbog – ein ehemaliger Militärflugplatz   Nach dem vorherigen Regentag…

Redbull-X-Alps – the ultimate adventure race! I’m absolutely fascinated by this race and I follow it as often as I can on the PC via live tracking. In Switzerland, the athletes had to fly or hike to Davos Turnpoint 6, then continue to the Titlis…

Flachland Teamtreffen 17.-19.05.2019 im Bayerwald am Hausstein (A mordz Gaudi wars!)

Damit hat sich ein leichter, geographischer Schwerpunkt in Ostbayern ergeben und zusammen mit der günstigen Wetterprognose wurde kurzentschlossen das Teamtreffen in den Bayerwald gelegt. Wir…

I am back! Paragliding, the ultimate passion

I put on my shirt and my ring – the one my love gave to me. The earrings that I inherited from my aunt. The wire with the winged pendant that my friend gave to me when I turned 50 years old. I put on…

PARAGLIDING IN THE INDIAN HIMALAYAS – THE BIR PILGRIMAGE

In October 2018, I made a paragliding trip to Bir in India. Of course, I tried to find some information online prior to the trip. Considering so many pilots travelling there, I found surprisingly little on the web. That is why I would like to…
