I participated in the Trofeo Montegrappa, a traditional cross country competition in Bassano, Italy! It was my first visit to this well known flying spot that I heard so much of during my flying career so it was nice to get to know the place right during a race! Having the entire French National Team, the best Italian, Slovenian and many other international top pilots the level of the competition was just as high or even stronger then some Paragliding World Cup events.
I am proudly announcing that I grounded a new home-base in Innsbruck Austria to live here in the upcoming years! So I am becoming a Tirolean now! :)
So stoked about my decision and the luck I had in finding a suitable nice flat fairly quickly. I am not a city-lover at all but Innsbruck is different! With every visit in the recent times I was falling in love with the atmosphere more and more that finally lead to my decision. Big thanks to all my friends for their support! I must honestly say that I didn't feel this happy for a very long time now! Unfortunately, on the other hand the happenings of the past months were holding me completely back from progressing with the Master Acro film project...Sorry but there is a big delay to expect in the release date. Peace!
On the 1st of March I had the chance to perform an aerobatics demo at the Kandahar Ski World Cup in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. What made this show even more special that the wind conditions allowed me to land in the tight arena of the race finish and be cheered by hundreds of spectators. It felt like being in a real circus, what an powerful experience!
Thanks to the Flying Bulls, RedBull and the SkiClub GaPa to make this happen!
I was very happy to get the chance to perform a paramotor demo on the first stop off the 2015 Redbull Air Race season! After Croatia and Malaysia it was the third such event for me in one year. It is always a very unique experience to be able to fly at locations where you normally could not be flying legally! Being at 500 meters over ground looking at the top floors of some buildings at eye height is not an every day experience! For the first time I was flying a show with a 100 meter long ribbon tape that was great fun and offers nice visuals for the spectators.
