About me
About me


my name is Manuel Mai, I am married and have two children. I live with my family in a quiet place in the north west of Germany. I've been a professional helicopter pilot for around 20 years. I started my career as a pilot in the Army. This period has taken up most of my professional life so far. After serving in the armed forces, I flew in the ermegency medical service and off the mainland (offshore). I have had a lot of exciting experiences and impressions during my pilot life. When I tell children about my experiences, they listen intently to me. This gave rise to the idea of ​​writing down the stories in children's books. Starting from the moment I wanted to become a helicopter pilot.

The stories are from real life and written for children. But I am sure that adults will like my stories too.


If you have read my book, I would be very happy if you write me ifyou liked the story.
