Naked pilot: Benedikt Bös
Bastienne Wentzel

"I'm a 29 year old pilot living near Stuttgart. In daily life I am an orthopedic technician, I build prosthetics. But in the evenings, weekends and vacations, everything is about flying activities."

"When I was 16 years old I got my paragliding licence. Back then in 2007, I was on vacation in Austria, hiking up the Neunerköpfle. It was hot, my knees hurt and I still had to walk down. I saw these paraglider pilots, who only took a few steps easily taking off and flying down. I decided right there that I needed to learn this." the full interview in Cross Country magazine 214, October 2020.
