Emi started hang gliding in 2014 and paragliding in 2015. He has been teaching paragliding in the Swiss Alps since 2016.
In 2017 he founded Altitude Trips, originally based in Cape Verde, and has been organizing paragliding trips around the world ever since.
Having flown in 18 countries & 4 continents, Emi holds a personal record of 243km in a single flight. From the Glaciers in the Swiss Alps to the vulcanos of Cape Verde, the flat lands of Brazil or the unexplored mountains of Iraq, Emi has experienced different types of flying and that has convinced him of a simple philosophy: To become a better pilot, you must Fly Everywhere.
We shape our courses with that in mind: 12 very different adventures around the year, from combining paragliding with ski touring & snow shoe walks, to flying at sunset and even with the midnight moon, to hike&fly and XC training in the home of the X-Alps.
Join us and take your paragliding skills to the next level.
On all 12 adventures one thing is for certain: You will takeoff in at least one new spot per day.
While that presents different challenges with the logistics, becoming a successful and complete pilot can never be achieved by taking off in the same place again and again. On our trips you learn to takeoff in strong wind and with no wind at all, in high slopes and shallow terrain, even using cobra launches or ski launches to start: each adventure has a different goal, all designed to make you a safer pilot.
Emi is the Chief Flying instructor. Christophe and François complement the team with their experience and love for adventure.
