Richi was living in California, USA in 1998 where he got his tandem license from USHPA and then his instructor license. There were some schools, but the tandem business was very new. So he founded his company in California in 2001. And started the school and tours business right away.
He returned to his country in 2005 after the death of his father and founded Colombia Paragliding in his hometown Bucaramanga.
In 2006 Richi started his international school, teaching in English and becoming very popular for students from all over the world. Now with more than 1300 students and 95% foreigners we became the # 1 school in our country.
Now we´re in Piedechinche, Valle del Cauca with four take offs and an amazing huge landing zone. Richi is a certified instructor with such an experience, professionalism and great attitude that make all our clients look for him and after the course they always recommend him.
