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 and since 2014 Bob and I are still enjoying this beautiful sport.

At the bottom of this page you will see a map with most of the locations (amongst others: Austria, Brazil, France, Germany, Norway and Switzerland) where I have made great flights. For me this sport is such a privilege to explore. Flying (all by myself) above impressive mountains, lakes, oceans and beaches with incredible beautiful views is every time a miracle for me.

In spring 2017 I also started to fly with a so called Mosquito NRG powered hang glider. Please see this specific page with more information about me flying my Mosquito. From this moment in time I am able to fly over the Netherlands. By showing these pictures and movies I am sure you will understand why I love to be in our beautiful skies!

Below you will see a map where I have been hang gliding. If you click on an icon, you will find more information regarding a specific location.
