Présentation de l'éditeur

Weltflug – The Gyroplane Dream: A true life story that lifts you into flight - literally.

Take off to a fantastic world tour and fly through the most beautiful landscapes in Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the USA & South America. Imagine being a part of an 18-month airborne adventure that spans 5 continents. Feel the wind brushing against your face and exciting your skin. See yourself looking down from low altitudes, soaking in the awesome beauty of some of the planet's most fascinating destinations.

And now, imagine that you are sharing this incredible adventure with your spouse – all from a 2-seated lightweight gyroplane!

Impossible? That's just what everyone used to think. But Andreas and Melanie Stuetz were on a mission to live out their childhood dreams – and nothing was going to stop them...

What is a gyroplane?

First flown successfully in 1923, gyroplanes are types of rotorcrafts. Rotorcrafts utilize self-turning rotors to develop lift and motor-powered propellers to generate thrust.

Breathtaking and Courageous!

With sheer wonderment, you'll glide into the atmosphere above historical Europe. In South America, you float above the stunning waterfalls of Iguacu. Across Africa, you experience a bird's-eye view of the captivating expanses of the Kalahari. Far away, you will drift slowly over the sights of New Zealand while further developing your sense of amazement about the world we live in.

About the Adventurers:

Andreas G. Stuetz

In the seventies, as a young boy in West Germany, Andreas dreamed of being an adventurer, an inventor and a successful entrepreneur. He always wanted to fly and was fascinated with the ARD cult TV puppet series Robbi, Tobbi and Fliewatuut. The Fliewatuut was a vehicle capable of flight, floatation and terrestrial travel. He was stricken then with need to fly.
Life progressed. In 2000, he was awarded with the highly prestigious Startup price by Angela Merkel. Andreas matured into the prosperous inventor and entrepreneur that he had envisioned – but something was missing. He still wanted to experience daring adventures in a Fliewatuut.

Melanie Stuetz

Like Andreas, Melanie dreamed as a child in East Germany, the GDR, of limitless travel, ideally as a cosmonaut in space.
On October 1989 she and her father crossed as refugees the green border to Prague (CZ) to enter the first refugee trains, which lead to the Western Part of Germany, where her Mom already waited after her last visit without return.
Twenty years later Melanie is closer than ever to her childhood dream. She was the first woman to pass the sport pilot licensing test for Xenon gyroplanes. After marrying, her and Andreas continued to plan for and train for the realization of their flight dreams. One day, while watching the James Bond movie, You Only Live Twice, they witnessed Sean Connery, as 007, performing a daring getaway scene. He soared away to safety, and to freedom, on a mini-helicopter – on a gyroplane!

Let the adventure begin!

Andreas and Melanie became licensed pilots and shortly thereafter launched their unified childhood dream of an unlimited world tour by the Fliewatuut-like gyroplane. It was a truly pioneering effort!
Their astonishing adventure took eighteen months to complete and traversed five separate continents. This amazing book and accompanying video collection are the thrilling results of more than 3 years of work overall.

Charity

Terre des Hommes is an international charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged children. Melanie and Andreas share a deep sense of gratitude for the fortune that they have enjoyed. For that reason, a percentage of all proceeds from the sales of the book and DVD's is donated to Terre des Hommes.
But money alone is not enough. It is a dream that drives the life of a person. And that is the reason why Andy & Mel also asked the children about their dreams. It is important that children do have dreams to find their way in life.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

In the seventies, as a young boy in West Germany, Andreas dreamed of being an adventurer, an inventor and a successful entrepreneur. He always wanted to fly and was fascinated with the ARD cult TV puppet series Robbi, Tobbi und das Fliewatuut. In that imaginative series, the Fliewatuut was a vehicle capable of flight, floatation and terrestrial travel. Andreas was stricken with a deep yearning to command a Fliewatuut; he needed adventure!

Life progressed. In 2000, he was awarded with the highly prestigious Startup price by Angela Merkel. He masterminded the concept of bandwidth-independent video conferencing and was awarded a patent for it. Andreas matured into the prosperous inventor and entrepreneur that he had envisioned - but something was missing. No matter what else happened in his life, he still wanted to travel and experience daring adventures in a Fliewatuut.

In 2007 Andreas and his wife Melanie became licensed pilots and shortly thereafter launched their childhood dream of a world tour by a "Fliewatuut"-like gyroplane. They engaged wholly in a unique worldwide adventure through Europe (along the Way of St. James), Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and South America. It was a truly pioneering effort!

Their astonishing adventure took eighteen months to complete and spanned five separate continents. About this adventure, they wrote the book Weltflug - The Gyroplane Dream and produced the five-part weltflug.tv film series. This amazing book and accompanying video collection are the thrilling results of more than 3 years of work overall. With more than 20,000 man hours invested in the project, the final 5-DVD/Blu-ray collection results from more than 450 hours of Full HD videography.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great flying adventure read. Fun detailed stories & lessons on Gyroplane flying capability! 1 janvier 2014

Picked this up through Amazon Prime over the holidays & loved it! Great detailed flying adventures in multiple locations around the globe. Andreas makes you feel like you are in the cockpit with him, looking out & enjoying the great sights that low & slow flight provides. The writing is very good & use of detailed descriptions makes it more than you'd expect from the description.

Definitely recommend to other GA personal flying pilots, & those considering gyroplanes.
