Colors and paragliding - that's how we can sum up the beautiful October
With the conditions getting more mellow Ivelin decided to take a new read on flying the local area swaping to some more rigid wings.
The first weeks of September we had a few events in Sopot - with the Bulgarian National Championships taking place in the first week and the "Airheads" festival in the second.
Ivelin Kalushkov managed to score 4-th place in the national rankings and 7-th place overall.
With the hardcore weather left in August we resumed training courses in September, and we were no short of enthusiasts wanting to take to the skies.
August came with the weather everyone was waiting for - record braking conditions and lots of flying.
Surely enough Yasen Savov proved that the conditions are record -breaking and smashed 2 of the Bulgarian neational records - for free distance doing 360 km from Nevsha to Kavala (Greece), and for FAI triangle - doing 225 km.

July came with the XC conditions we've been waiting for.
Our first mixed XC group for the season turned out to be combining pilots from almost every corner of the world - we had pilots from South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong, Kenya, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
Altough in July - the weather still decided to play by his own rules so we had some stormy but very beautiful days:
With the end of June marking the beginning of the active summer season the XC enthusiasts started rolling in - our friends from the United Kingdom and Belgium managed to do some early season XC flights despite the tricky weather at times:
Niki took our friends on trips to South Western Bulgariato explore new places and flight opportunities.
As the month flew by so did a few more "little birds".
May provided good conditions for our new batch of wannabe eagles to start flying with the birds.
Ivo and Hristo finished 2 successfull beginners and Intermediate courses, and Niki joined in for the first BHPA EP course training for our big group at the end of the month:
Everyone finished with happy faces and a lot of new paragliding dreams.
