Stefano Gurgone


He was born in Bologna, Italy, in a flying family, his dad begun hang gliding in Sicily in the early 80’s, he had to try! So he did the course as soon as he could at the age of 20 in Castelluccio di Norcia, super scenario, he fell in love… Later on got his paragliding license as well. After a few years he decided to quit his job and dedicate his life to inspire other people and share the passion. He worked 4 years in the school were he learned, teaching others how to fly, than started to travel, always with his paragliding wings on. He is in the process to become a tandem pilot. Now he is organising and working in the top paragliding and hang gliding competition and events in south Europe. He also cooperate with the Free Flight Italian Federation writing articles in their specialised magazine. He choose BGD because of its energy, super nice in the air as on the ground: "BGD is a family made by people with heart, passion, and a special joy for life. They look amazing, always smiling. For them is not too much about the performance as it is for the experience."
