Ich bin 1991 in der Oberpfalz und somit im Flachland von Deutschland geboren. Durch meinen Vater, welcher begeisterter Drachen- und mittlerweile auch Gleitschirmflieger ist, bin ich bereits mit der leichten Fliegerei aufgewachsen. Dabei begann alles mit Modellsegelfliegen und Groundhandling mit dem Gleitschirm. Seit 2005 fliege ich Gleitschirm (Hang und Winde) und genieße jede einzelne Facette dieses tollen Luftsports. Nach meinem Abitur zog ich nach Österreich und begann dort ab 2009 als Fluglehrer zu arbeiten. Neben meinem Tourismusstudium in Innsbruck, welches ich 2015 abschloss, arbeitete ich für mehrere Flugschulen als Sicherheitstrainer. Bis heute leite ich etwa 10-14 Sicherheitstrainings pro Jahr. Seit 2013 arbeite ich fest beim DHV als praktischer Fluglehrerausbilder und technischer Prüfer. 
Nebenbei trete ich seit 2010 im Gleitschirm Akrobatik Weltcup an und konnte dort 2015 und 2016 meine besten Wettkampfsaisonen mit einer Top 10 Platzierung im Gesamtergebnis feiern. Des Weiteren fliege ich begeistert Strecke, Speedflyer und im Herbst gehe ich gerne auf eine gemütliche Hike & Fly Tour. Wenn es mal nicht zum Fliegen geht, verbringe ich am liebsten meine Zeit auf den Skiern oder im Sommer auf meinem Moutainbike.

Location:

Olympus with its highest peak Mytikas – 2.918 m – is the highest mountain range in Greece and the famous home of the Greek Gods. It is located directly next to the Aegean Sea with its long coast lines and sandy beaches.
Our flying area – with more than 15 take off’s – covers the three mountains Pieria, Olympus and Kissavos that form a longer range parallel to the sea separated by impressive valleys.
These mountains protect our area throughout the year from strong meteorological winds so developing their own local wind systems which we use for flying.
The southern region typically offers fantastic XC and thermalling opportunities. Pilots use the flatland of Thessaly for FAI triangles or going on a XC back to the beach.
The northern area towards the sea typically offers smoother conditions, which are also ideal to experience first thermal flights and landings on the beach.

 

Olympic Wings can arrange and book for you accommodation and transfers for the duration of your visit and your participation to the course.
