Hello aviation enthusiasts.

I would like to share this with you! After a long fight I finally got my class 2 medical for private flying.

I was born with a genetic bone disorder and I only measure 1.11m. Flying has been my live long passion and I am so happy that I can finally pursue my dream.

My goal is to first get the GPL (glider pilots license).

I hope this is interesting for other with some sort of handicap.

Good going. Gliding is a great way to start. Nothing teaches the basics of flying better...and it's a ton of fun. Good luck.


What the...?

Awsome, congratulations!

As a fellow glider pilot, let me tell you, the shorter you are the more comfortable you will be in a glider.
You'll love gliding, the purest and most aesthetic form of flying! But I have to warn you, it's addictive and you'll end up spending most of your summer weekends on the air field.
Let me know if you're ever in south western Germany in summer, I'll take you on a ride, and then once you got the license you'll take me!
