Jens Heider first learned flying while he was studying to become a flight systems engineer. When writing his undergraduate dissertation at Lufthansa Flight Training on the subject of turbulence drag, Heider established contact with the German Aerospace Center and became familiar with the work of the Flight Technology Institute in Braunschweig. In early 2006 he seized the opportunity to apply for a post as Technical Aviation Manager at the DLR Flight Operations Center in Braunschweig and got the job.
