Learning to fly the rigid stuff!

I am currently in Argentina visiting Swiss paragliding pioneer Andy Hediger at his airbase Aeroatelier. Having fun taking lessons with him introducing me to the world of rigid wings :)
Yesterday we had a 1 hour 40 minute flight on a Taurus sailplane. So stunned to feel and control the incredible performance of this thing!

Christmas climbing session

15 degrees today and perfect winter climbing conditions near home!
Great, but the mountain slopes urgently need some fresh snow now! :)

Thank you and best wishes!

I wish peaceful Christmas times and a happy, health and successful new year to everybody!

MANY THANKS my followers for your all your support, you guys rock!

Paraglider tandem acro test flight gone bad - spectacular incident

One of the top3 sketchiest moments of my paragliding career, from 2010! Hopefully it will never happen to you!

The best of paramotoring

Here is my new favorite edit! A new style from me I guess :)
Breathtaking panoramic flying and some aerobatics in the German-Alps. Duration of the whole flight was just 1 hour but some of the scenic images may turn drone-using filmmakers jealous :)

Enjoy and please support me with your shares! Thanks!

Without my sponsors it wouldn't happen: GoPro, U-Turn and BlackHawk Paramotors thanks!

The moment I started to like my paramotor

2 days ago I decided to break out from the grey November weather and climbed over fog and clouds with my Blackhawk Paramotor! I ended up having the most amazing paramotor experience of my life so far!
Feels like I finally start to find the joy in this art of flying! Yeah right it is noisy and stinky...but it offers the freedom to see our world from a totally different perspective and to experience things that otherwise would be impossible without a motor. I am more and more connected with my engine which is really reliable and gives me great confidence with a sense of security. This is the most important factor to me. I also started to perform some aerobatics maneuvers using my 21.5 m2 U-Turn X3. So far I did a couple of SATs, Helicopters and Wing-Overs of course. I just need to install my smoke system to spice it up with visual effects! :-)

Many thanks to my sponsor Blackhawk for supporting my way into paramotor flying! I am very thankful for their super friendly attitude, competence in the sport, helpful skype service and endless patience to teach my non-mechanic soul the essentials of paramotoring...Thank you!

A video edit of my flight is coming up soon! ;-)

U-Turn Everest 19m2 light weight wing test flight

Received and tried the new Everest from U-Turn! A pure hike & fly wing. I choose the 19m2 model with only 2,37 kg and still thermals nicely!

Chasing shadows!

Been out on the fields near my home chasing my shadow and practicing a little with my Blackhawk Airmax 220! The machine is working just fine :)

A 5-star home flying site!

Getting ready to launch at my new home-site, Osterfelderkopf! So gorgeous! Still can barely believe, the landing place is 2 minutes from my house :)
Great for acro and the 274 km German record was flown from here, what else do you need!?
