Nothing but hot air: The video game “daWindci” brings back the exciting times of aviation and aeronautics.

The critically acclaimed title is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch – right on schedule with the 200th anniversary of Wilhelmine Reichard, Germany’s first female balloonist!

Munich, April 2011

2011 is the official year of Wilhelmine Reichard in Germany. On April 16th 1811, the 23 years old was the first woman in Germany to fly with a gas balloon. The press was thrilled: A sensation was born! This year, it’s the 200th anniversary of this important event, which was history-charging for both the aviation business as well as gender equality. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is launching a Reichard-Initiative to acknowledge her merits. Her earnings are underestimated, says Joachim Block, director of the DLR-quarter in Braunschweig.
