Working with me...
I was born in Bulgaria, a small country in Southeast Europe. My passion of ultralight aviation and adventure sports began back in 2001 with a skydiving course. Later, jumping from airplanes naturally led me to the Bulgarian Special Forces where I served as a Paratrooper Reconnaissance Officer. This is where I first saw a Paraglider and was instantly hooked. I started actively paragliding in 2006. My P1 through P5 international FAI (https://www.fai.org/) paragliding ratings I earned in Europe. Due to the close proximity of the countries in the region my weekly "playgrounds" were various sites in Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Croatia and so on. Over the years, I participated in 12 international paragliding accuracy landing competitions in 8 different countries. I learned paramotoring in Bulgaria back in 2009 and since then, I am active in both Free Flight and Powered Paragliding (Paramotor). Towing banners and aerial advertisement with paramotors were just some of the "projects" we were busy with back then. I moved to the United States in 2012. I never stopped flying. I earned my USHPA P4 and Instructor ratings while working at Morningside Flight Park in New Hampshire (one of the best paragliding and paramotor schools in US). I am now a USHPA and ASC certified Tandem Pilot, winch operator and Instructor in both Free Flight Paraglider and Powered Paraglider (Paramotor). I am a member of NAA (National Aeronautic Association) and occasionally represent USA at Paragliding Accuracy Landing competitions around the world.
I love hike and fly, and exploring news sites. Paragliding in the Middle East, Asia and South America holds a special place in my heart. My favorite paragliding destinations in US are Idaho,Wyoming, Colorado and Vermont.
