What motivates you?
“The vision to build a completely new type of aircraft which could change our daily life are facts that motivate me every single day. I am sure that I can support our team with my knowledge and skills while the work at the test institute and the intensive focus on certificating new types of aircrafts showed me that I want and I can lead this project through the certification process.”
What does the future of transport look like for you?
“I see the future with a very differentiated transport system. The most important elements in urban, regional and interregional transport will be air taxis, light rails, and to a lesser extent private and shared buses and cars. Only with a majority of these the large mass of people in urban will be able to move. In rural areas I see a mix of air taxis and private buses and cars and on interregional routes air taxis and high-speed trains.”
