I got into paragliding in late 80’s in Europe. I have been involved since the very beginning of this sport. I have 30 yrs of experience flying paragliders. I have flown in famous places such as Chamonix, Annecy and Missy – this was in early 90’s
I have purchased my first paramotor in 1998 and since then acquired close to 4000 successful PPG flights in all mater of weather conditions and landscapes. I have attended many fly-ins and taken off from various take off areas. Over the years I have experienced many engine out forced landings that always ended up as mere inconvenience. I am very experienced all around PPG pilot.
I am a Transport Canada certified PPG instructor since 2001
I have sucesfully thought close to 300 PPG students. I do not cut corners – I do this right.
I went above and beyond to become all around great pilot with wast knowledge related to flying. I have earned private pilot license in 2014 and am capable of flying 10 people to Bahamas in Cessna Caravan although most of my hours are on a Piper Cherokee with some on Cessna 172 and Zenith CH-701 STOL.
I have been awarded TOP Recreational Pilot of the 2013 year and TOP Private pilot of the year 2014 by St. Catharine Flying Club
I will take you on tandem flight before you fly solo
It is important to get introduced to PPG with dual training instructions. I have tandem unit capable of flying student pilot up to 220 lb. I will give you basic in flight training so you feel comfortable on your first solo flight.
