Michael Küffer

Michael was inspired to fly by his father, and started to fly in 2006 in Housi Bollinger's school. His first taste of comps were in 2009 and he has been hooked ever since! In his student days Michael flew lots of comps, XCs, acro, speedflying, hike 'n fly and some tandems. These days, due to career demands, he focusses mainly on comps and hike 'n fly. Michael loves to fly for the feeling of complete freedom in the air, the fantastic landscapes and a decent bit of adrenaline and adventure while pushing the limits.

Resides: Winterthur, Switzerland
