Always this pressure - flying in the heat

Many customers prefer to imagine a squeaky blue sky without a cloud in the sky as ideal weather for sightseeing. I have to say that as a helicopter pilot I find that rather boring. Clouds have a certain fascination for me because of the shapes and play of light depending on the amount of sunlight. You see even more interesting up close [...]

Palina and me

One fine day some time ago the phone rang. It was an agency's turn. Whether the helicopter can be chartered and whether you can film it, they have a project. Now I know that agencies for any film project usually know relatively little about helicopters, what is actually feasible and possible and [...]

Today neither sightseeing flights ... - if the magnetic check reports an error

I wondered for a while whether this topic is even suitable for a blog post. We primarily want to encourage customers to book a sightseeing flight. If we are now talking about errors and defects, that could counteract this goal. On the other hand, we want to be transparent to our customers and also convey knowledge about everything [...]

The airspace - almost endless expanses

As a helicopter pilot, I am often asked on sightseeing flights whether I have to register somewhere if I start a sightseeing flight in Jesenwang with the helicopter? This question can usually not be answered in monosyllables. Most passengers only know flying from the vacation plane. This usually starts from larger airports like Munich or Frankfurt and not on [...]

A whiskey over Munich? Please speak clearly anyway!

During our sightseeing flights, I like to set the radio in our helicopter so that my passengers can listen to the radio via headphones - for most of them it is an exciting experience. When else do you have the opportunity to experience first-hand these frequencies that normal kitchen radio can no longer receive. Despite whiskey zero per mille [...]
