South America – Brasil x Chile x Argentina 2014

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,Argentina,Brasil,Chile by Nicole Montag Mai 25, 2015

6 weeks of holiday on the other side of the world! Love this! Went to see a good friend in Sao Paulo! Both, we went south (Barra de Ibiraquera) for a week of holiday! I went to learn how to kite surf! Really nice people and nice place where we were! Just like normal holidays! Hotel on the beach, relaxing, swimming, stand-up paddling, talking – just nice! UNTIL I got the news from the university that I received one of the rare places to study physiotherapy! WOW – that changed my life!

After 10 days in Brasil I went to “GOOD OLD” Iquique! I spent more than 3 weeks there! Nearly 4! If you ask me – too much if you just stay there! It was so nice to fly there again but I missed the adventure a bit like what I did the years before! I didn’t go to see Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia or Argentina form there! I just stayed and flew every single day! I had really good moments! Moments where you are “JUST RIGHT IN TIME” to be on the right spot! Perfect! I wanted to make a Infinit Tumble wherever I went and I could! It was my INFINIT year and I enjoyed it sometimes even nearly too long! But well, there is always a bit LUCK involved while you are “enjoying” or “not enjoying” life! Whatever! It was a good time in the end!

I finished my trip in Argentina. I went to Buenos Aires! Wow! For me it is like Paris of South America! It is great! Don’t know why they have a crisis because I did the best shopping ever there! … thanks Julie for your patience and your selling skills!

In-between-MOMENTS

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,Austria by Nicole Sonntag November 2, 2014

Coming back from Turkey and floating in the flow of not knowing what to do next the perfect autumn hiking weather helped to get a clear head! 3 days in a row I went hike&fly at my home place where I spend more then 6 years. Last but not least … so just to remember how nice home is! Well, I will leave to South America to spend 6 weeks in Brasil, Chile and Argentina! Back for Xmas with my family this year! Cool! I love my life!

Again Ölideniz – Airgames 2014 and a bit longer

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,ACRO SHOW,Turkey by Nicole Mittwoch Oktober 29, 2014

Back in Paradise for another 10 days! Thank you Kadri for inviting us every year for the Airgame-Show!

Nice to share moments with the other pilots especially when I can share the new record for INFINITY with Beverly! She did 75 and some days later I did the same!

AcroTour 2014

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,ACRO COMPETITIONS,Austria,France,Italy,Swizerland by Nicole Mittwoch Juni 25, 2014

Flying- and “In-Between-Flying” moments from the summer 2014!

World Cup Omenga/Italy- 3.-6. July

It was my coming back from my long time resting from my accident! It was a good coming back because I could show all my new skills in 3 runs! I never dreamed to fly Esfera or Antirhytimic in the comp but it went pretty well and to make a good show it was just perfect! Even I think I surprised some guys as well with my entertainment because in the first run I flew at place 12/33. Pretty good but never mind there is still a lot of homework! The guys showed me there twisted manovres and I have to say … WOW … cool not bad! Let’s twist and try! I enjoyed the comp and I think I will come to the last Worldcup comp in Udine/Italy! Why not giving some guys and girls a harder time to battle!?

Training

After the successfully world record flight in Turkey and my operation just a day later I trained after a month break mostly in southern tyrol in Plan de Corones, Luson and a bit farther south on Lake Garda! Even at home in Stubai I had some nice training days before the comp!

After the comp the weather was not flyable and I decided to visit my french italian friend at his hidden place just around the Lago d’Orta in a small and nice quiet place called Parone/Varallo! He has restaurant there and it is sooooo nice! Check out this place! VALDIGOJA! The next day the weather didn’t improve so I quietly went over Passo de Semplon and Passo de Grimsel to Luzern to unintentionally see my friend in the hospital! But well we have all days and moments were shit happens and the guardian angels are over-fully booked! I know! Thanks life to be with me!

For more training I went to fly with in Gerlitzen, San Simione and Organya.

World Cup Final Lago Cavazzo/Italy 14.-17. August

The weather made us wait 2 days without any flight! Even before these days waiting in San Simeone it was not much flyable, means not much training! After coming back from my training in Organya I had some troubles to adopt to the smoooooth slow air over the lake again! I think it was a combination of all, weather, adopting conditions, not flying and maybe some other strange stress what didn’t help my mood to perform good! I had just one chance/flight and I missed it! I really wanted to win the comp but NO! Anyway there was no chance to win the whole world cup! I missed one of the comps in Albania because of my operation in may!

But like a good friend tried to give me some comfort! She said: ” … Just one shit flight but so many good training runs with having a lot of fun”. True! I even learnt the last manoeuvre on my To-Do-List, Rhytmic to the other side! So now I can say I flew all the basic manoeuvres, even XChopper (by mistake :/ ) ! Actually I could stop flying now ;) ! Don’t worry! Flying is like a really good drug! Hard to give up! It is just too good!

Sonchaux Acro Show 21.-24. August

It is definitely my favorite place to fly a show! Villeneuve is placed at the lake of Geneva in Switzerland! 12 of the world best pilots were invited for a funny sort of competition a battle! I don’t know how I got into these 12 but let’s leave it with these words … it was a really nice experience! 2 pilots fly the same time and the one with the better show wins the run and if you are lucky you are in the final runs! It is a bit hard as a girl to fly against the guys but well … why should a girl not fly like a guy??? There is no reason why we could not win! It is just a lack of training!!! But it was fun! I flew with Raúl Rodríguez (the Sierra Nevada Team – well we both learnt to fly there), with Tim and Marvin! I enjoyed flying with the guys because it was a really nice atmosphere. “Hacemos un buen trabajo,  Nicole!” (Horacio said this to me after being out of the battle and doing his trabajo = show flights)! Well, and the good party on saturday! Why is it not always like this? Who invented competitions? So stupid! It is much better to do a show!

Videocut  + lifestream of the show

Coupe Icare – Acro Show 19.-21.September

Next show! It was not planned to go to France! Normally I wanted to take it easy to be present in the Acro-scene this year but well there was someone who gave me a reason to go! Listen to your heart … how romantic! But well it is true! I never had a better Coupe Icare! Even before I arrived, the french TV was calling me asking me for a interview! It was a perfect weekend meeting everybody, flying together and having fun after the season finished!

After season training

After some nice days flying in France and exploring some little Organyas in France I went over water again to train my “ANTIRHYTIMIC”! I went to Lago di Garda again! Perfect weather and good flying made it happen that i made again a big step to understand this maneuver! I did my first ESFERA TO ESFERA! Perfect! How I love flying, how I love my life! Thanxs everybody who is sharing my moments! I m so happy to be with you!

60 infinity turns – record & some nice pics of a wonderful place Ölüdiniz

Sixties … 60 female Infinity turns from Nicole Schmidt on Vimeo.

Now I am the female world record holder for Infinity!

10 days in the paradise in Turkey, on of my favorite places to fly! Where can life be so easy – flying, swimming in the sea, wonderful sunsets, easy living, nice weather and nice friends – well here in Ölüdeniz! That’s why I come back here after my long winter in France! I mastered to king-manoeuvre THE INFINIT with so many turns! I love this manoeuvre so much that I even flew more than 200 turns in one day! Well, I was tiered after! But it was the best therapy for my coming operation removing the metal of my leg which was just 2 days later!

Winter 2013-14 in France

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,France by Nicole Samstag Januar 18, 2014

Back again! After my crash I am more enjoying skiing, flying and touring! Is it true that human beings need a bit of a bounce once in a while? Mhhh … I wish the answer would be NO! But good to be back!

Happy New Year!

Turkey 2013

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,Turkey by Nicole Dienstag November 12, 2013

After my slow-mo start this year I decided to spend 3 weeks in the paragliding paradise “Ölüdeniz” to have more time to train! So I went on the 21st october for the air games! Thanks Kadri for inviting me! It was a nice time to fly with friends! After this I spent the next week with my swiss friends and the flying school Robair! I think I fell in love with switzerland. Am I allowed to say that :/ …! The last week, after the season ended, I was nearly alone! But there was always a taxi to babadag and I could fly as much as I wanted! Just 2 days it was not flyable! Too windy! Perfect to relax and go walking and sightseeing! It was needed! 19 days flying of a total of 21! I was lucky and I m soooo happy to be back in the air! I will be back in May!

Happy to be back!
