Wolfgang was born in 1964 and grew up in Cologne. He has been happily married to his wife Nelli since 1988 and is the proud father of four children. The household is completed by a dog, which of course also flies with him. Wolfgang has been running his own business in the real estate sector very successfully for decades. After disappointing attempts with charter planes he decided to buy his own plane. Through intensive research he was sure that the Bonanza, still, is the best single engine aircraft on the market. He decided to purchase a 1989 F33A and has enjoyed each hour on this aircraft ever since.
In 2017, he completed his piloting career with an instrument rating. In 2021, his Bonnie was upgraded with a new IO550 engine and turbocharger.

Frank Busche born 1959 in Schwelm,Germany, married, one son and trained as industrial clerk and technician. Of course, the dear family always comes first, but aviation is beating in Frank’s heart! For almost thirty years his passion was sailing, every free minute he spent on sailboats and on the water, when this kind of movement was finally too slow, Frank switched to flying, navigation and meteorology ! Since 2005 he has the license PPL-A for single-engine and multi-engine aircraft! A few years later he completed his license with an instrument rating. Frank learnt to fly on different aircraft like Cessna 172, Piper-Archer 3, Robin 2180 as well as Piper-Seminole and Grumman-Cougar.
Since 2010 he owns a Beech Bonanza F33A (nothing else matter) with which he traveled all over Europe. One great flying experience was a trip with a Grumman-Cougar through the USA and afterwards the transfer of the plane from Sacramento over the North Atlantic to Marl-Loemühle. I joined the EBS in 2010 kicked off with a EBS Pilot Safety Training (PST) on his Beech F33A. In my opinion, the EBS PST is a must for every pilot!
