The founder of Nearbirds
“Back in 1994, I tried a paraglider and realized that all the years up to this point I just wanted to fly.
Paragliding at this point was a very young sport at the beginning of its development. Imperfect equipment, lack of schools and flight sites – all this created certain difficulties. But this sport gave me everything that I had been looking for for so long, and the main thing was the ability to fly.
I flew. Gained flight experience. Tried many things: aerobatics, cross-country flights, competitions. Somehow i managed to get together with people who love the sky. This is how the club with the eccentric name NEARBIRDS was born. Later on NearBirds flight school was created on its base. Flying thousands of kilometers in different routes, we mastered our skills and grew as pilots. Turning in to sport professionals. And now, we have the opportunity to teach you how to fly at the highest professional level, to guide you from elementary school of a weekend pilot to a professionally trained route pilot participating in competitions.
During the years of the school’s existence, more than a thousand fans of ultralight aviation have passed through various courses. All of them became pilots of various qualifications.
The imperfection and uniformity of paragliding equipment, which was flown at the beginning of its development, made me feel dull and upset. I always wanted something new, comfortable, interesting, original, beautiful. But progress at that moment moved extremely slowly, and my diploma in aerospace engineering gave me no peace, demanding an action from my side towards progress and development.
The production of NearBirds harness systems began as a small production line, where it was possible to create and test new original ideas, producing small quantities of flight equipment that did not look like samples from other manufacturers. And we had a lot of ideas. Now we had an opportunity to implement even the most unreal of them.
This innovation and precisely this freedom of thinking, combined with a non-standard approach to any technical problem, has become the basis of the modern company NearBirds – a manufacturer of paragliding equipment, which has its own inventions, patents and European product certification”.
