Nikolay Klimenko was born in the USSR in 1984. Like all pilots, he dreamed of the sky since childhood. An introduction to paragliding took place in 2016. Nikolay was a passenger in a tandem flight. In the summer of 2017, he completed a winch flying course. In the fall of 2017, under the guidance of instructor pilots, took place his first solo flight in the mountains. Since 2018, the new pilot has been constantly taking part in accuracy and XC competitions. BGD is love at first sight. This philosophy and striking design really inspires. Nikolay flew in the French and Italian Alps, in Macedonia, the Canary Islands, Western Australia, Lithuania, Latvia and Belarus. His native spot is the plains of the Leningrad region. When he is not flying he works in the IT field. He is interested in black and white photography, and is a fan of the use of film.
