Cross Country Paragliding

After many years of flying and teaching experience, Nikolay Yotov decided to share all his knowledge of Cross Country flying in one of the most detailed books about cross country paragliding, flying tactics and flight optimizations.

Nikis book "Cross Country Paragliding" is available for download HERE and it is translated in Bulgarian as well. 

The book is free for download but you can support the author with a donation.

 

June - November 2021

The active season is making place for the winter months but despite the crazy world we have been living in, this year was still full of flying, new frinds and new and old horizons to fly to.

In June...

... we added more flying friends to our flock. Both beginners courses were filled up with new faces from all around the world, united in the desire to fly.

Our students from France, USA, Bulgaria, UK, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Sweden made June very colorfull and fun for everyone and of course full of flying!

May 2021

In the fist week of May, Skynomad along with the Bulgarian National Aero Club and the Bulgarian Paragliding Commision organized the fist competition for the season.

"PG spring XC meeting". 

The friendlty competition had the aim to bring together bulgarian and foreign pilots for a warm-up session of competition tasks arround the Sopot valley.

The competition was succcesfull despite the complexety of the weather conditions.

April 2021

April came with stable and reliable weather. Mild temperatures and light wind conditions made it possible to our 2 groups of beginners to succesfully finish their courses and join the flock of the new paragliding pilots for the month.

March 2021

On 1-st of March along with the Bulgarian celebration of "Baba Marta" came the time of the first beginners courses for the season.

March came ith the typical weather style of a womens mood (in Bulgaria March is called the women month due to the drastic swings in the weather :) , the first beginners course started with windy conditions which later in the week turned into perfect flyable weather for beginners training.

November settled in but the winter was nowhere near!

As the warm weather continued we focused on using the conditions to the maximum.
