Hi from RB Air Race Malaysia

Getting ready for demo flights in Putrajaya, Malaysia!

Bavarian Championships

My first XC comp after a long while was the Bavarian Championships. I was flying an Enzo1 due to the current theatre around the Enzo2. There were 2 successful tasks despite the marginal weather forecast. On the first one I missed goal due to a fatal mistake at the last turnpoint, but managed goal in task 2. There is loads to learn! Waiting for my Enzo2 now :)

Ready for the Bavarian Open!

After a few days at Lake Garda, today had the chance to fly my first XC from the Wank on an ENZO 1! What was expected to be a top-to-bottom glide turned out pretty awesome despite covering cirrus clouds! A perfect round trip with toplanding back up
On Thursday the Bavarian Open begins and I am at the start so fingers crossed for nice weather! Hope to see you there!

Show time in Rovinj

Pre-flight checking my Blackhawk paramotor before the demo flight on Saturday. The main event day is today and the wind seems to be perfect so far for dynamic low level maneuering! Smoke on at 16:23 at the RedBull Air Race!

Demos at Red Bull Air Race in Croatia

Smoke on! Paramotor demoing at the RedBull Air Race in Rovinj, Croatia today at 1 pm and tomorrow at 4:20pm! If you are around come to watch or say hi at Vrsar race airport!

Greetings from Chamonix!

Testing the new Ozone Trickster2 and filming together with Félix Rodriguez!

ENZO2

What a beauty! An ENZO2 'S' prototype just arrived yesterday and today took it for a nice 3 hours cross country flight near home! This wing is incredible!
Conditions were really unique since the mountains are covered with 1.4m of fresh powder! Almost everything is under snow but light thermals were on and managed to make my very first out-and-return XC flight from here!

Fly OZONE!

As most of you know the past 7 years I have flown for the paraglider brand U-Turn. During these years we managed to achieve many incredible things together! From creating ground-breaking acro wings and inventing new maneuvers through world cup titles till making infinite tumble in tandem possible...This was a very intense period of my life and I am endlessly thankful for U-Turn's support all the way through! And that not only through success and fame but also the darkest days of my life...

After all however, the time has come for a change! Now, a completely new era of my paraglider life is about to begin!
I am extremely excited and proud to announce that from now on I will exclusively fly Ozone - probably nowadays leading and most innovative brand on the market! I am really looking forward to this journey that will definitely open new horizons to realize future dreams!

Many thanks to the entire Ozone management and team for the warm welcoming and for having me on-board!

So let's go flying now!

Flying a Remo

On Monday I had the chance to co-pilot a Robin Remo aircraft cruising across the Werdenfelser region including circumnavigating the Zugspitze.
5 minutes after landing, took off again with a sailplane, but unfortunately the weather was really stable so we couldn't stay up long.
All in all, another great experience on the way to fall in love with rigid wings :)
