Viele meiner Freunde sind aus anderen Länder, uns verbindet die Liebe zum Sport, die gemeinsam verbindende Sprache ist Englisch. Daher gibt es alles zum Fallschirmspringen auch hier nur auf Englisch.

I believe in DOING sports and not in watching pictures about it, posting my experiences or talking about the fun in my life.

Come fly or jump with me in real life!

The Internet never was and never will be a substitute for real life experiences.

 

After more than 30 years in the sport (in fresh air) I am getting addicted to tunnel flying. We will see. Time is a factor in my life, and travelling with all the equipment gets more and more cumbersome with all the security concerns at airports. Just a jumpsuit, helmet and regular sneakers – and a tunnel with other "bodies" seems to do the trick.

Skydiving as well as flying has nothing to do with being brave or wild or weird. Especially skydiving requires discipline, knowledge and preparation before each jump. Then any skydive will provide you with joy and happiness and experiences you have never dreamed of before.

Norman Kent is one of the best freefall photographers. Parts of the spoken text in his video: "Willing to Fly" are included in my 5th book Warum Fliegen sich im Kino langweilen.*

The book is in German, sorry fellows. Such it might be of primary interest to European skydivers speaking German.*

"Why Flies get bored at the Movies"

 

With the pictures of also very well known photographer Max Dereta the famous Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung printed a story about wingsuits and the fixed wing of the Germans: Birdmen (jpg) (sorry, German only)

 

A few pictures from 2011/2012 jumping at Z-Hills, with my international friends:

I enjoyed all of our jumps, the small ones and the bigger groups (mostly on weekends). And there are still a lot of awesome freefall videos present, thanks to GoPro and to Guðmundur Ásgeirsson. The Z-Hills Reunion (Zephyrhills from the other side, 40ways out of DC-3s) was an evening to remember.
