I was never one of those children who dreamed of a career as a pilot. Being a pilot wasn't something I aspired to be as a child. Not because I didn't want it, but because I didn't know it. It was only many years later that I came to aviation by accident. As a trained forwarding agent, I was headhunted to LTU airline by my boss at the time. Two days after I was hired, I entered a cockpit for the first time and was fascinated by flying from that moment on. Now I knew what I wanted. Even during my training as a pilot, I was interested, rather unconsciously, in flight safety, air accidents and crew resource management. In my first job as a pilot on a business jet in a smaller company in the commercial aviation sector, I immediately experienced what it means to work in unsafe conditions. Every day, the former managing director, owner and pilot of this company gambled with the lives of his employed pilots and passengers through his actions. After I left, he had a self-induced flight accident in 2002. In the following years of my work as a co-pilot for a large German airline, I acquired further additional qualifications. Today, I am not only a qualified airline captain but also an aircraft accident investigator, certified business coach, business trainer and personnel consultant, as well as a crew resource management trainer and I am also active in a working group at the Association Cockpit that deals with aircraft accidents.My main focus is to help you if you have questions about leadership, communication, better people skills, decision making and a better company culture.Why is the aviation system and flying so safe and reliable and how can we transfer this to your company to ultimately make it more successful?
