Elke Fuglsang-Petersen started soaring after finishing her school and college education in Germany. Then, for the next 45 years, she found herself locked in a small office, working, but knowing there was more to life than the retirement her co-workers dreamed about. She continued flying, meeting many new friends in German soaring clubs and enjoyed a great way to get out and see things from a different angle. Elke enjoys traveling and flying and lived in the U.S. with her family for two years. She is happy to now know glider pilots from the U.S. as well as other countries and says, “They are as amiable as everywhere in the world!” She feels fortunate to have found a temporary soaring home in Boulder, Colorado in 2010-1013. She and her family moved back to Germany in 2013, where she currently covers world soaring events and news for Soaring Café.
