TIMELINE

 

It started the in the summer 2008 when Tomas met Günter, and from there "as they say" the rest is history.

Story

The Story is vast. But here's a short recap.

 

Günter Pöschel

 

The pioneer that inspired us to embark on an epic journey.

 

Günter was CEO of Equator Aircraft Company GmbH and made remarkable aircraft from 1969 to 1985, they were way ahead of their time. His substantial knowledge and stories were too good to overlook.

 

Günter Pöschel made us want to be pioneers ourselves, challenge convention, break barriers and fight our fears, just like he did.
