hang-gliding

WE DID IT!!

Yes!! We DID it!! On the 21st of August 2017 Arne Tanzer flew from the Johanna and landed perfectly at the landing area. His flight was much longer than we expected 43 instead of the envisioned 20 seconds. This has mainly to do with the perfect and long launching platform we build. Due to this, […]

I love to be in beautiful skies

Skydive Costa Rica. In February 2017 I had two great experiences in our beautiful skies. Early February, as part of a group of around a hundred experienced International skydivers, we skydived above Tambor in Costa Rica. The view from above was amazing and landing at the beach in front of the resort made it all […]

Skydivers flying with hang gliders

Hang gliding

In the summer of 2006 I had my first training course to learn hang gliding. During a skydive team training weekend in 2005 one of my (skydive) friends asked me and some other skydive friends if we would like to learn this sport “in our great skies” too. I started in Cond (Germany) with 4 skydiving friends […]
