BIO

Nicole Fedele until the age of twenty years old she lived with her family in Ovaro, a small town located in the north, near Tolmezzo and in September 2004 she moved to Gemona del Friuli where she still resides. Unlike many other riders with whom she has had the opportunity to compete with, she has never shown any attraction or tendency for flight during her childhood; She approached to the glider during her adolescence for a mere curiosity, a mere casualness.

Nicole’s Story with the para-glider was a stroke of lightning, something beyond words, it was as if, suddenly, in front of her had opened a new horizon, full of charm. Then she could not even begin to imagine that this “meeting” would change her life forever. Soon she came into contact with some local riders, and a few months later she was able to realized her desire to fly. On 13 of October 2003, she had her first flight in June 2004, she achieved the certificate VDS at the flight school “Adventure” and for the first few years she practiced paragliding activities in her free time because the University was absorbing much of her energy. The year of 2007 can be considered a key year in her training: after a bad accident she has gone through a period of serious internal crisis that has forever changed her approach to the flight. Although the road of her recovery was long and winding, but she came out victorious and determined more than ever to take a personal revenge. Without any coincidence the next year was the year of change, the year in which she began to devote herself to distance flights with a strong and growing determination. In a few years she has achieved excellent results, both in Italian and International level, thanks to several world records that have been established and that have been recognized by the FAI

In the Spring of 2011 she has also achieved the license for the tandem-fights in the flight school “Volandia” and actually she works as an assistant instructor and as a tandem pilot in the Blue Phoenix school.
