Bruce Goldsmith has quite possibly more competition flying under his belt than anyone. One of the few pilots who’s won in both hang gliding and paragliding Bruce began flying comps in the mid-80s and capped off over 30 years of success by winning the Paragliding World Championships in 2007 in Australia.
He’s started or designed for most of the major brands in paragliding (Ozone, Airwave, Advance, etc.) and now heads up Bruce Goldsmith Designs.
His passion for the sport and his knowledge comes through in his book 50 Ways to Fly Better and belong in every serious pilot’s library.
Bruce is a regular contributor to Cross Country Magazine and is truly passionate about free flight.
In this information-packed episode Bruce discusses how competitions have changed, the close link between design and competition, creating and perfecting a modern glider, he relates an amazing story of tumbling and hang glider in the Owens back in 1993, why accidents happen, three of the most important ways to progress, how to tackle the most critical aspects of becoming better and a lot more.
