Below are some of the pilots who either paraglides regularly with us and/or the ones that has been strong supporters of our efforts. I will continue to update the list, upon granted their permission and whenever time permits.

Yusmar is the founder of Paragliders Malaysia and the benevolently dictating IT geek of this website.

He holds paragliding certifications from the Association of Paragliding Pilots and Instructors (APPI), United States Hang-gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA) and Malaysia Sports Aviation Federation (MSAF).

He is currently the official distributor in Malaysia for Ozone, Skywalk, Woody Valley and Ascent.

Andrew is an affable pilot with more than 20 years of paragliding experience in many paragliding regions around France and recently started to fly a lot in Malaysia. When he is not flying competitions in Europe or having fun at the Ozone Chabre, he is usually found coring the thermals in Kuala Kubu Bharu or Bahau with his favourite Gin Boomerang GTO.

Andrew is a good source of knowledge for thermaling efficiency, competition guidelines and as well for the LZ jokes and chatters.

Jean-Jacques is an affable pilot with excellent skills and patience when it comes to thermaling, he often managed to climb the thermals no matter how small or weak they are. More often than not, this pilot who smiles and laughs all the time could be found flying at local sites around Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand enjoying his fun-filled paragliding trips, and making new personal best records at local sites.

Eric is a traveling pilot, based in Marseille and Embrun, but roaming around south of France for paragliding competitions where he is often appointed as the Master of Ceremony. Eric paraglides mostly in the south of France while traveling in his classic combi Volkswagen minivan and conducting tandem flights for passengers.

Nora is an ardent cross-country pilot who flies mostly in Germany but in recent years, she had a lot of experience flying in Asian region such as Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. She was often the one that will find that elusive thermals and being used as the reference for pilots who weren’t sure where to catch the next lift or hopping from one cloud to another.

Apart from being a research scientist, Nora is currently one of the moderators at Paragliding Forum; world’s largest and most active online discussion website for paragliding related matters.
