Patrick Puskeiler – Founder of ALB Aviation

My name is Patrick Puskeiler. As a child I already grew up on a airfield, so the addiction to aviation is in my blood since the very first moments of my life. With the age of 14 I started gliding and until now I can look back on about 4500 flying hours in all kind of aircraft and many unforgettable moments in the cockpit.

Beside my activity as instructor and examiner I achieved  several victories in national gliding competitions as well as four participations in world championships.

Not just gliding is my passion, I love flying vintage aircraft and doing aerobatics too. In 2016 I started to work on my commercial aviation career by starting the ATPL training and ALB Aviation. ALB Aviation is the great chance to combine my passion with my job.
