This dream seemed to be impossible…

It became a bigger adventure than expected…


5 Continents – 2 Pilots – 1 Dream

There are a number of ways to travel around the world. One way is to do it the fastest in order to set a world record. Another way is to take your time and visit the parts of the world you want to visit. A married couple from Germany chose the “trip of a lifetime” route.

Childhood Dream: Flying Car

This story is not about world records. It is about dreams. When Andreas Stuetz was a little boy he did not miss any episode of his favorite TV series about a flying car, which can also land on water. Andreas told his Mum that as an adult he is going to travel the world in a vehicle like this. She laughed and said: “Boys and their dreams”. His later wife Melanie grew up in East Germany and her childhood dream was to travel without any frontiers, best as cosmonaut. Melanie is not an astronaut yet, but the first female pilot on the world tour by gyrocopter - a kind of flying car in real.

Andreas and Melanie Stuetz learnt everything they needed to take off in Europe, Africa, Australia & New Zealand, the USA and South America. Between the continents the gyrocopter was shipped. Andy and Mel used this time to visit projects of the childrens’ charity terre des hommes in South Africa, India, Thailand, Peru and Bolivia. The organization is named after Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s memoir “Terre des hommes” (English title: Wind, Sand and Stars). The pilot couple asked local children about their dreams. And with the marketing of the Weltflug project in book & movie they support them to make childhood dreams come true! More info: article | PSF Magazine, USA.
