Bob Vogel

Author, speaker and hang glider

Meet a man who doesn’t believe in limits. Why live any other way?

Give me fresh air and a good challenge!

An inspiring man leading an extraordinary life

Bob was a professional skier and stuntman. While preparing for a stunt, he suffered a spinal cord injury and lost the use of his legs. Today, he travels all over to talk about his journey, from the process of recovering from his injury to getting his hang glider pilot license, competing in hang gliding aerobatics competitions and winning an Emmy Award for his video production and journalism. Bob has also been a senior correspondent for the New Mobility magazine since 1966.
