    was born in Iran in the year the so-called Gulf War with neighbouring Iraq began and when Nirvana's album Nevermind was just released.

    Artoosh liked to climb the mountains of Iran since he was a child, following the example of his father. At the age of ten, he saw a glider for the first time and in his eyes, it ignited a flame that has not yet gone out. At the age of ten, he also flew a glider for the very first time and at the age of sixteen, he started flying a tandem.

    At the age of twenty, he left Iran for Turkey where he met his wife - at that time Turkey's XC flying champion. From 2014-2018 he flew 1000 tandem flights a year. Artoosh is an international acro, tandem and SIV instructor and our test pilot!

    You can meet his ever-smiling face at every big event that Sky organizes!

    And if he is not working then you will definitely find him with his wife and daughter in Oludeniz on the beach. ;)

    My name is Luke de Weert and I am a professional paragliding pilot from the Netherlands. I started paragliding when I was fourteen years old on the beach close to my home in Alkmaar. Starting on the beach defined my flying style and passion for the sport. Because I was always flying close to the ground it made me use my imagination and creativity to fly in a relatively small playground. This resulted in me learning a lot about the gliders and some smaller tricks that have set my foundation to fly acro in the mountains.


    It will sound really cliché, but it is freedom. Paragliding allowed me to have an extra dimension in my life. Instead of going left, right, forward and backwards, it gave me the possibility to move in every possible direction. Paragliding brings you back to nature and makes you think about nothing else except flying. All the stress and worries in life fade away and you are in the moment. Paragliding has also given me a purpose in life. I am a very passionate and disciplined person for success in my paragliding career and life. I want to achieve all my goals and dreams. The journey and reaching those goals give me so much motivation and energy which is the most addictive drug for me. It is my driving force and I love this natural and passionate feeling. A place that gives me this feeling the most must be Organya in Spain. The amount of hours flying in nice and warm weather where I can fully focus on training and developing myself as a person and pilot gives me this peace in life. Although Oludeniz in Turkey is also a place close to my heart for similar reasons. Mostly the view over the ocean at the end of the day makes you appreciate life more than ever.


    My story started before I was even born. My parents went to Switzerland and my father got inspired by paragliding pilots in the mountains. He started paragliding four years later and shortly after he took me with him in multiple tandem flights to show me the beauty of the sport. I got interested in the sport when I turned fourteen. I don't know what happened in my mind but from that moment my life changed. Because my father was a pilot himself, he taught me all the foundations I needed to know. This helped me progress faster than an average pilot would and it gave me the possibility to do my first SAT just half a year later. The better I got, the more time I wanted to invest in my future and my career. A never ending cycle/story/journey.


    As a little kid who just started paragliding, my dream was to become a professional paragliding pilot. I knew that it was going to be hard because of the country I live in (for the people who don't know, the Netherlands doesn’t have mountains). I basically always have to travel if I wanted to train more acro. This was quite hard because I was still young and couldn't travel alone. So I had set my goal to reach the top 5 in the world. This sounded realistic to me and something I could achieve. What I didn't expect is that during my first time participating in the Acro World Tour, I would finish fifth! This was an eye opener for me. Basically, my dreams just became so much bigger than I had ever thought was possible. I wanted more. Covid-19 has paused the competition scene for one year and this gave me the possibility to train more than I ever could and gave me the advantage that I was always lacking because of the country I live in. My progression went through the roof. My trainings were super efficient and I managed to learn a lot of new tricks that year. Even the legendary Horacio Llorens told me that he had never seen a progression this fast in one year. When 2021 came around I could finally show what I had in possession. I competed in my first World Championships and proudly finished in third place. At the same time, I finished the Acro World Tour in second place. What was just a dream for me as a little kid just became a reality that year. But there is still a lot more to achieve so the story will keep on going for many more years.


    It's hard to say one best moment because there are so many. The one that keeps coming back is the second you take off. The moment you take off and feel the pressure in the brakes and the feeling that you're flying is just unimaginable. This feeling never gets old.

    Another memorable moment is when I finished fifth in the AWT. Because from this moment my dreams became bigger than ever. From that moment I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how I want to live my life. It was the moment I knew I was going all in. No plan B.




    My name is Maud Perrin, I am 22 years old, I am French and I do acrobatic paragliding.


    The best spot depends on the season but of course Organya in summer! In winter I love being in Chamonix and between seasons it changes. Flying generally makes me feel free and allows me to relax, not think about anything, and just enjoy the moment. Acrobatics, more specifically, is a way to surpass myself, to work on technique and the perfect move.


    I started paragliding with my father when I was 10 years old in tandem and then on my own when I was 15. The acrobatics came later but I always preferred the technical and aesthetic side of the discipline. I've been in Organya for several summers and am studying at a business school that fits my competition schedule.


    I am training today to become a world champion in the mixed category. Today no women are competing with men on the overall podium, I want to change that. Acrobatic paragliding is a discipline which, in my opinion, should not differentiate between the genders because physical appearance is not a factor in the difference in level between men and women. What makes a difference today is the mental aspect and this will not prevent me from reaching the podium.

    Outside of competition, I want to progress more widely in the mountains to combine projects with beautiful climbs and takeoffs with adapted equipment. I wish to use my flying experience to enlarge the possibilities of combos.


    My most beautiful flight was in Chamonix from the Aiguille du Midi during a sunset. The evening lights on the sea of clouds were magnificent, this flight will remain engraved in my memory.
