Professional integration in Germany – Validation and recognition of foreign professional qualifications

The German labour market offers attractive opportunities for highly skilled workers and managers with the right training. However, before looking for a job in Germany, it is vital to ensure that overseas qualifications are validated, and anyone who wishes to pursue their career in Germany should therefore ensure that their professional qualifications are checked to ensure that they are equivalent to their German counterparts.

Geraldine Mock – The housewife who flew around the world

Geraldine Mock – The housewife who flew around the world

She was more than “just” a flying housewife – which was how the newspapers labelled Geraldine Mock in 1964 after flying solo around the world. Nevertheless, she wore the label with pride since her motto was “don’t let others put you off pursuing your dreams”. She lived up to that and remains an inspiration for strong women in aviation and space travel up until today.

Using bionics to reduce noise levels – silent flight inspired by owls

Using bionics to reduce noise levels – silent flight inspired by owls

Bionics is an important area of research in order to optimise components especially in the aerospace industry. Owls’ wings have already attracted scientific attention and their analysis may make it possible to create planes and helicopters for the future that will fly virtually silently. Initial findings in relation to aerodynamics and noise emissions have already been implemented by the aviation industry.

Claude Ryan – Pioneer of modern aerobatics

US American Claude Ryan achieved a milestone in the history of flying and aerobatics when constructing the first series-built aeroplane with an aluminium fuselage and braced wings. As a passionate engineer, he paved the way for the first non-stop flight between New York and Paris and some years later he built the Ryan St-A, which was one of the most beautiful aeroplanes of its time.
