Bio: 

Curt grew up around his father's boats and airplanes in Venice, Florida, USA.  He started taking flying lessons in high school and thought he'd come back to it after college when he had more money.  Curt discovered hang gliding when he was waterskiiing professionally in shows around the world during his summers at university.  Hang gliding then became a high priority in his life and he hasn't looked back. 

Curt has been flying since 1994, competing and/or instructing hang gliding in USA, Costa Rica, Brazil, Russia, Austria, Italy, France, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and Australia.
