STUDENT-PILOT | CREW | OWNER

The vision to start paragliding in Cagayan Valley was initiated by a Novo Vizcayano paragliding student (PG1), Violet Lucasi-Elrays. After flying in different fly sites in neighboring Asian countries, and learning flysite management from different companies, she brought the sport home so that more Filipinos from the north can experience the freedom of flight.
