Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Mathias Frey was born in 1969 in Cham in the Oberpfalz region of Germany. His family moved to Switzerland in 1978, giving him knowledge of and appreciation for the small nation and its direct democracy from an early age. At the age of 14, he gained a moped license, at 17 he applied for a private pilot's license, at 18 for an instrument flight license and a multi-engine aircraft license. At 19 he gained his driving license and at 20 he gained a commercial pilot's license. As well as spending his entire professional life in the field of air traffic control simulation, he has been head of poster advertising for the Swiss National Circus Knie and project leader for the foundation of a regional airline. In 2003 and 2004 he spent a rather short time at the Department for Contemporary History in the Philosophical Faculty of the University of Fribourg. The author has been very interested in the less-examined moments of history and the depths of politics since the mid-nineties.
