Climb & Fly Team
In summer 2020 we decided to add a new sub-team to the existing NOVA Pilots Team (which is more focused on XC flying). We proudly present the NOVA Climb & Fly Team. The aim of the NOVA Climb & Fly Team (CFT) is to promote para-alpinism and to inspire more people to enjoy this utterly amazing discipline. Due to their small packing volume and low weight, innovative wings such as the BANTAM or DOUBLESKIN open new possibilities for athletes to combine their passions for alpinism with paragliding. eaning if you don't have to climb back down, you can aim even higher regarding the route you choose - and still be back home for supper. Or fit your sleeping bag in our backpack as well.
Since a roped team naturally consists of more than one person, all members of the CFT are based rather close to the NOVA headquarters in Terfens (near Innsbruck, Austria), so they can easily climb and fly together. Simon Heinrich (ITA), Manuel Ploner (ITA), Fabio Keck (AUT), Alexandra Lamprecht (ITA), Jessica Kratz (AUT), Carla Vivó Soler (GER), Christof Happ (AUT) and Jakob Braun (AUT) were selected to join. The CFT is managed by Paul Nagl, who leads the service department at NOVA and Luis Depping, who is our Product Manager Harnesses. If you want to get inspired by their adventures, please follow NOVA on Instagram and Facebook as well as the individual athletes. Stay tuned!
