After finishing his studies in
mechanical and aeronautical engineering at the Technical University of Aachen
in 1968 as a Dipl.-Ing. he spent his professional life in the aerospace field
with several companies, (FOKKER, GRAVINER, DORNIER and AIRBUS Defence & Space) and one research institution,
Although a specialist in
