flight on La Palma January 1994.
Since 2005 I am spending my time mostly for paragliding and am approximalely
200h per year in the air. First and only one participation in an
international competition together with the worlds best pilots:
"Desafio Isla de La Palma 2005". Ranking
13 with a Swing Astral 3, DHV 2.
I am also certified to service all emergency parachutes including
papillon from Vonblon. On the Island I am working in addition as
"Para-Doc" and am repairing paragliders if there was an
incident at the start or landing in order to prevent you being grounded
in your vaccation after such an incident.
am an enthusiastic paragliding pilot. I am loving to soar but also
to discover the territory while flying away and running for distance.
I am also flying from time to time in hard thermal conditions (but
usualy getting soon tired if it is too hard) and am always planning
with a good portion of security. I am flying for fun. Thats also
why I am normally not participating in competitions.
