ALEX SCHWEIG

A cook, mountain athlete, music lover, and especially a free flyer through and through, Alex started paragliding at the age of 15 in Lima, Peru. Quickly drawn to the freestyle and acrobatic side of the sport, Alex has trained many years to develop a keen connection to glider control. A professional tandem pilot since 2015, Alex has worked in Peru and Austria sharing the joy of flight with thousands of people. His experience with acrobatics led to a 2021 Acro World Cup participation, and lately the pursuit of free flight has led to XC competition, where the Paragliding World Cup events are the latest new challenges in his colourful flying career. Fluent in Spanish, English and German, Alex is always excited to teach pilots how to develop style, tact, and connection to their equipment, as well as the value of conscious decision making and the psychology of risk. Keenly interested in flight safety, Alex has led yearly safety seminars in Peru to promote a safe and informed approach to progression in our sport.

SOMI - MICHAEL SOMMERAUER

Born in Austria Somi got in contact with paragliding quite early.   With 15 years he got the license and from that moment, he basically spends every free minute in the air or playing with the wing on the ground. This playfulness led to acro paragliding which he still enjoys until today. Somi is also participating in XC competitions all around the world and won the Austrian Championship in 2018. Furthermore he is one of the few pilots who flew 300km+ FAI triangles in one flight. If there is no flyable weather Somi spends his time cycling, scuba diving or editing videos of the last flights.
