About my hobby: Flying in Linkenheim (Pages in German)
During the weekends I spend a lot of time (my wife Martina thinks "too much time", although my daughter Jeannette likes the the place) on the Linkenheim airfield (EDRI) or (preferably) in the air (German PPL-A/B/C). Especially I am a great fan of soaring and glider aerobatics and part owner of a SWIFT-S1 (HB-3114) aerobatics glider.
