He told FOX News that they are looking for anyone who just “needs a boost” or is willing to “rise to the occasion.”
Although Santacroce created the program six years ago, he’s been a full-time paragliding professional for nearly three decades. ために 13 年, he was also a Red Bull athlete where he showcased free-flying sports.
以上 10 数年前, Santacroce injured his spinal cord while attempting one of his tricks, landing him in a wheelchair for a couple of weeks.
“I always did this trick where you sort of drag your wingtip on the ground and then straighten up and land,” 彼は言った. “And one day I just was out flying [そして] I got it wrong.”
Spending time in the wheelchair changed his perspective on life.
In light of getting a “second chance,” he recalled asking himself one very important question: “What am I supposed to be doing with my life?”
“The answer was quite clear,” 彼は言った.
When Santacroce isn’t running Super Fly paragliding, which offers equipment sales, paragliding lessons, tours and clinics, he dedicates his time to Project Airtime, reminding those, that no matter what, they can still “have a radical experience.”
Project Airtime does about 80 flights a year at its location in Salt Lake City, ユタ, 40 of which are for the individuals who sign up and another 40 are for their caregivers, Santacroce said.
