Heinz Krebs was raised and lived in Southern Germany where he spent most of his free time either flying or painting. He was a passionate aviator, a commercial and test pilot, as well as a flight instructor with far more than 10,000 hours of flying time and almost 23,000 landings to his credit. He flew 81 different types of powered aircraft ranging from Piper Cubs to jet fighters and 39 different glider aircraft types.
Heinz unfortunately passed away in 2013 after a short illness. As an artist, he was able to draw on his life-long experience as a pilot. His original paintings and prints are sought after all over the world. Heinz's fine art print editions have been authenticated and further enhanced by the personal signatures of many of the world's most historically significant Aviators.
