As physicist, pilot, skydiver and journalist I composed numerous articles and feature stories in the past decades. Many high class media assigned stories to me and printed them.

All started with print articles in Markt&Technik for the themes: computer and software, followed by: Editor at the German leading aviation magazine Fliegermagazin (5 years of innovative aviation stories, responsibe for the technology part of the magazine), Editor in Charge, responsible for communications and PR at German Air Navigation Services for their magazine: transmission.

Since January 2013 all my publications happen online. Flugundzeit is the German online Aviation and Space Magazine by Helga Kleisny. It functiones as a thought-provoking impulse for more than its major subjects: aviation and space. Future technology is not only relevant in aviation – bionics and artificial intelligence will influence our lives in many respects. Food for thought is good for everyone and especially for pilots of all kinds.

A major aspect of Flugundzeit are facts. Wild guesses and speculations have no place at all on this website.* This is especially important with aircraft incidents and crashes when most of the facts are not known (yet). Flugundzeit has an outstanding and exemplary position in the online world in that.

*Exemptions may be few petite humorous contributions, which are posted to lighten the mood of the reader and give the feeling of relief, when reading about too many severe crashes otherwise might become burdersome.

Flugundzeit started in January 2013 at the German Scienceblogs ( From April 2016 on the magazine moved to its own web page:
