The book

The passion for the aviation world accompanies the photographer Andrea Pozza since his teenage years and even disappointment resulting from the inability to become military pilot – after the first pair of prescription glasses – managed to dent that passion. When, at age 18, the puddle was able to afford his first SLR camera, he immediately thought of utilize for photographing of airplanes at air shows. The attendance, in those same years, the circolo fotografico di Bolzano, allowed him to learn how to develop and print black and white.

Then one day, on the Board of the club appeared the notice of an aviation-themed photography competition, organised by the Caproni Museum. Pozza – that on that occasion he placed first in the section colour – still remembers today with sincere emotion when he received the award from Countess Maria Faith Caproni.

After that contest, began the first great expeditions abroad, on the occasion of major international air show. In that same period the puddle he knew even Rodolfo Biancorosso, from whom he learned the rudiments of aeronautical journalism, turning what until then had been a simple passion, into something more.
In addition to participating in numerous air show, then came the first experiences in air raids: the coast of Morocco in the wake of a group of French pilots, to those of the Baltic Sea in the wake of the first tour organized by the Alpi Aviation.

And it was during this experience that he got to know even big names in world aviation photography, as in the case of maestro Katsuhiko Tokunaga.

In 2008 then a chance to realize a dream, to "take the wings and learn to fly. Once again, as already happened in the photographic field, the airport in Trento was crucial in order to achieve this dream, thanks to Marco Fozzer and flight school he directed.
