What’s one of your most memorable flights you’ve ever made?
The flights that stand out the most for me, since flying for the Swallow’s and working at Skydive Algarve are the formation flights, with three aircraft, to drop 45 skydivers simultaneously for the Sequential Games event!
What do you like about being a pilot at Skydive Algarve?
Skydive Algarve is not only one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever flown in my life it also has an extraordinary work environment and a kind of challenging operation which keeps it interesting.
What’s something you’re proud of in your pilot career?
After a long battle to become a pilot, I have the privilege of doing what I love most in life … flying! This in itself is my greatest achievement and I’m proud of that. It also makes me feel a strong sense of satisfaction playing a part in providing people with an unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
What do you do outside of flying planes in your free time?
I love to eat well. Portuguese cuisine is the best and there are some wonderful restaurants to dine in the local area. I also love fishing as well as being with friends and exploring new places.
In your opinion what makes Skydive Algarve such a special dropzone for skydivers?
As well as the awesome weather conditions, the extraordinary view and everything that is related to the surrounding area and the Portuguese culture, Skydive Algarve’s team of staff is fantastic.
