    Default Pilot Profile: GermanPilot


    I'm glad I'm having a Pilot Profile here
    The wish to become a pilot excisted since I got a DVD from Aerosoft advertising for their products in FS2004.
    One day, I think it was on a 6th of December, I've seen a flight simulator package for nearly 20€ (so ~26$), and I installed FS2002 on my old PC. It was fun flying without any laws you have to follow. But as I got FSX, the whole world changed.
    My interest in aviation began to grow, and now... now I'm having my sailplane pilots license since 1 month. I hope I'll pass it practically in this year.

    Until now, I have about 30 flights in sailplanes (I know, not that much), most in the SZD/PZL 50-3 Puchacz:

    Sadly, my club sold it for a Grob 103 Twin Astir, but the Twin should be better than the polish thing shown here

    My dream is it to fly a Dornier Do 228, my absolutely favourite plane. But for that I need much money and more experiences in flying

    (I removed the .img-tags, because the pictures are way too big)

    Welcome to the world of pilots. Starting in gliders is a good way to go, since the gliders force you to learn (and use) a lot of things that so many folks don't know these days, such as proper use of rudders, microclimate and more. I hope your dreams eventually come true for you. And thanks for the pictures -- they're nice.

    As Skylab would say:
    Remember: Aviation is NOT an exact Science!
