Who am I ?

I specify that I am neither an astronaut nor a cosmonaut, but that my ambition is to fly to space as a space tourist. I haven’t gone to space yet, but here is my aeronautical journey :

My name is Boris Otter, 50 years old, married with 3 children (1 girl and 2 boys), living in Geneva, Switzerland. Passionate about aviation and space, I left my job as a professional firefighter to successfully complete an integrated airline pilot training in 2001-2002 at Swiss Aviation Training Ltd in Basel. The aeronautical qualifications obtained during my aeronautical career are as follows:

Private Cosmonaut Training and Zero-G Flight on board Ilyushin-76 MDK, Star City, Moscow. 2016, 2018, 2019.
Gyrocopter pilot, French License. 2014
