Francesco Delpiano

italy

Masta AKA Francesco Delpiano was infected by the paragliding virus in November 2012 during his stay in the town of Pokhara (Nepal); has completed its first didactic flights in Nepal and the first flights from neophyte on the cliffs of the west coast of India. Back in Italy he obtained first the paragliding pilot's licence and then the hang-glider pilot's licence, the next licence on the list is the tandem paragliding pilot one. When he flies he loves to play, learn and conquer new scenarios, he likes to play with the wind and the slope, fly away on XC, land on take-off to greet friends or land on top of a hill or mountain to enjoy the view. For him the flight is not a matter of kilometres travelled or competing, his goal in this game is to learn something new every time and land with a big smile to take home in the evening. He decided to fly BGD one and a half years ago after trying the PUNK. His words: "It was love at first sight! Direct and precise piloting, those colours and the name, Malcom (BGD Italy) I want one, this is the wing for me!!!". In his down-to-earth life he works as a stage technician for concerts and events. He lives in a small country village with his wonderful companion Alessia, a dog named Lucky and a red cat named Zucca.
