Flying for research: Jens Heider, test pilot
"Hard work, great fun, not much sleep, but really fascinating". This is how Jens Heider describes his time in the USA. Just a short while ago, he was receiving training at the National Test Pilot School in the Mojave Desert. Whenever he talks about it, his eyes light up.
