About Me

Woman flying helicopters? Why that?

 

Often people ask me that...

For all of you here´s my story:

 

Already in my childhood i was more interested in trains, cars and RC-boats than in Barbies :) But i was always dreaming of flying...

When I was about 16 years old, i bought a used RTF airplane in ebay. Unfortunately it was totally bad trimmed and configured. As I didn´t know anyone who could help me I had about 3,4 crashes...and sold the poor rests... with the opinion that I, as a girl, am not capable of flying such tecnical stuff...

A lot of years later I heard of a small, tiny, really easy flying and nearly undestructable helicopter: The Picoo Z. "This is something for me" I thought. This little machine was fun, but soon I wanted to have something which would be flying in the direction I wanted to. So I bought myself a koaxial helicopter.
With this heli I was flying a lot but when a part broke I needed some help. I found a group of guys near my city, who were meeting every month. They invited me to come and bring my heli. Since then I stayed in contact with them, and soon they said: "It won´t need long time, then you want a real CP heli, too".

 

As you can think, this was the truth :) One year later I bought a used Mini Titan from Thunder Tiger and I was now able to configure and program it myself. As I now had some expierence, I wrote in the support forum of Thunder Tiger Germany about my experiences and helped other people.

 

The Thunder Tiger Team Manager Jörk Hennek discovered me there. "A girl flying our products? Helis? Not possible?!" So he put himself in contact with me, and since summer 2008 I was member of the Thunder Tiger Raptor Team. I was presenting the new products on fairs and events, helped other pilots, was writing in forums and doing some reports and articles from time to time. As a flying girl is very eye-catching, and I´m also posting a lot here and on Facebook, a lot of other sponsors joined my list.


After 5 years with Thunder Tiger I felt that there would be time for something new. And now, since March 2015, I am a proud team pilot of the italian manufacturer SAB Helicopters
