Soaring with the birds is the best experience and challenge I've ever had.
You're pulled up to 300-400m by a winch wire with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in about 2 seconds.

I've started my pilot education in August 2003 in Tølløse Flyveklub and managed to go solo in less than 2 months after 47 starts.
I got my Glider Pilot certificate in May 2004 and in August I went on a talent course in Arnborg.
In June 2005 I took the Flight Instructor course on the danish gliding center Arnborg.
