Kucki Low's life story is an adventure filled with fascinating twists and turns. She triumphed over much adversity and succeeded against all odds to become not only a successful flight instructor but South Africa's First Female Airline Pilot.

Today she reaches audiences worldwide, inspiring them with her talks and her book, This Is Kucki Your Pilot Speaking. Drawing on her own life experiences, she takes audiences on an exciting journey filled with laughter and introspection. She invites them to fly with her as she demonstrates how to use JOY as your compass to make your life SOAR, triumph over adversity, and live a happy, fulfilled and extraordinary life.

Born in Austria, she immigrated to Namibia with her parents in 1953. The early and untimely death of her parents catapulted her into the "real world " forcing her to fend for herself. Although Kucki only spent three productive, close years with her parents, the lessons learned in that time lasted a lifetime.
