Mission | Vision | Motivation
After so many years traveling, testing different flying sites and competing, Leo had the idea to share his experiences. The focus should lie on improving and progression, for the participating pilots to get the maximum out of the trip. Learning and enjoying every single minute.
For this purpose it is important to have a diverse and experienced team. During his career Leo was building some good friendships in the paragliding community. By sharing his ideas he could fascinate Nicole and Petar with his idea of Paragliding safaris. Now he is happy to welcome both in the team.

Petar is proud to call himself the first professional Serbian acro paragliding pilot. Since he was born, he was interested in sports and at 18 years old, he joined the parachute military unit so that he could train in the skies.
In Serbia there was virtually no acrobatic flying scene, but after his first live acrobatic flying encouter in 2007, he was inspired. He went on to perfect some of the most difficult tricks in acro paragliding.
In the following years, he continued to compete in the world acro cups and aero events, perfecting his skills on expeditions and projects around the wolrd.
