New pilots on the road – the Flying Finn with students in Spain

Working as a paragliding instructor has many priviledges. One of them is to be able to wake up early in the morning and see the morning mist slowly and beautifully evaporate while heading to a local airfield. It often makes me feel sorry for the…

BIG EMOTIONS (IN THE DOLOMITES)

I can not compare my flights with all these mega flights that many of the NOVA pilots team completed, with all the kilometers flown and with all the altitude meters gained hiking. Not at all. BUT I can easily keep with big emotions in flight….
