Manuela Breen

Manuela Breen
January 31st 1959 - January 15th 2001.

Manuela Breen had her first introduction to microlight flying in 1984 when she was asked to act as ´co-pilot` in Gerry’s successful attempt at the world two seat distance record.

She flew both weightshift and 3 Axis microlights, and also flew paragliders, winning the first Portuguese championships in 1990. She also did free fall parachuting in California having jumped from 14,000 feet! She had a great spirit of adventure. She worked extremely hard at building the training school and Lagos Aerodrome into what it is today. She was mother to two wonderful children, Amy born in 1989 and Philipp in 1994, both budding aviators who first flew when they were only 2 years old!

Sadly Manuela passed away in January 2001 after a brave fight against cancer but her influence will continue to live on at the Centre.
