Tell us a bit about yourself...

My love of Europe and primarily Germany extends from the culture, to the beautiful landscapes, history, and the Autobahn. I served as a Long Range Surveillance Solder ”Fallschirmjäger” on the border before, during, and after the wall came down. I was there for reunification and the World Cup Victory! I have many lifelong friends and return as often as I can.

What has your virtual career been like?

My virtual flight sim hobby started back in the late 80s on the Amiga 500 computer. Ever since then I have been seeking the best simulation experience that I can get. I have made my share of mistakes and learned many lessons over my career. I am always available to talk shop and help out with simulation / hardware issues. Currently I have a Real Cockpit of an A-7D Corsair that I am working to restore back into a Simulator for DCS.

Why did you join flyeuro?

flyeuro.com has an outstanding web presence that was the immediate draw for me. I recently rejoined VATSIM and began looking for a home. In the past I have flown with many virtual airlines and military organizations. In order of ranking I found the following reasons to make flyeuro my home: simple and intelligent livery, routes in Europe that allow me to fly and not get the wife angry with me and finally, a great website and pilot tools that support my flight planning.

What is your role at flyeuro?

My focus will be on supporting the pilots of flyeuro in whatever capacity I add value.

What are your ambitions for flyeuro while being on the staff team?

My goal is to help grow flyeuro into the best airline on VATSIM. To help to create an airline where the pilots have a place to fly, enjoy the community, and have pride in what flyeuro has become.

Any wise words / advice and such you'd wish to share with the public?

Life is too short to worry about failure. Get out there and make mistakes like a champ! But never repeat them and remain humble.
