The team in detail
Dr. Bernd Goretzki
Co-Founder & Managing Director
Bernd is a passionate glider and motor pilot and also enjoys hot air balloon rides. There are now well over 6000 flight hours in his log book.
The qualified meteorologist has fulfilled his dream with TopMeteo: preparing the weather for users in such a way that they can carry out safe flights.
Bernd is Vice European Champion in the OLC and one of the most successful long-distance pilots in Europe.
Stefan has been flying since he was 13 years old and completed his first solo flight in an ASK-21 one day after his 14th birthday (it rained on the birthday itself).
Competitions followed (a brief stint in the Junior National Team) and flying holidays. He especially loves the mountains. An absolute highlight were the flights in the Chilean Andes, at almost 7000 m MSL high Aconcagua.
He also has almost 1000 hours as a commercial hot air balloon pilot.
