Zlatko is self employed and tries to spend all of his free time on his hobbies, especially flying, climbing and running with his wife Tanja and daughter Katarina. He experienced his first tandem flight with a friend who is an alpinist in 1993, and immediately knew that he would take up paragliding in the future. However, he dedicated a lot of his time to climbing at that time. He made his first solo flight in 2003 but started more serious flying in 2005. He started climbing and alpine climbing in 1991. Since then he has accomplished more than 800 alpine climbs in winter and summer, and been on six climbing expeditions in Patagonia, the USA and Pakistan-Karakoram. He also like other endurance sports especially running. He has done some ultra trail marathons, the longest being the Tor des Geants in 2010. In 2009 he made his first 200km + flight. In recent years he has been combining endurance sports with flying, and competing in hike & fly competitions like Bordairace, Crossalps, Dolomiti Superfly and the X-pyr in 2016.
