I have been planning for a while and set a date for focusing on fun and free time. Initially I was considering the end of this year. But to extend by 2 months my PASA paragliding school from the end of the current period on October 17, I would have to submit a full application for renewal. Not worth the hassle for a short extension during less flyable months.
Starting October 18 2021, I will sell the student wings & things, and enjoy a more carefree lifestyle: Details. Flying with you, will be better than watching you from the ground.
Good times ahead. I might get one of these T-shirts…
Sad to see you leave the professional side of paragliding, but I’m sure you’ll still come out to fly! Life shouldn’t be all about work. It’s awesome that you can retire fairly young and get to enjoy the rest of your days as you see fit. Who knows,… maybe it will be too much freedom, you’ll get bored and will come back. 😄
