Darek dreamed of flying from an early age. Growing up he longed to get up into the sky and felt like he was missing out anytime he heard about people who flew recreationally. Finally, Darek pursued his passion and he's been hooked ever since.
Beginner turned pro, Darek is the instructor you've been looking for to move you towards your passion. Since 1996 when he first got into the air, he has travelled all over the world, hitting nearly every continent and flying in the coolest and most exhilarating destinations. Ask him about his favourite trips and he'll share some great stories.
He is a HPAC Certified Paragliding Instructor and Transport Canada Certified Ultralight Instructor. Cross-Country (XC) flying is his absolute favourite thing. Darek is also Industry Canada ROC-A (Restricted Operator - Aeronautical) examiner.
Highly recommended. Darek took my wife and I through ground handling all the way to our first flight. He guided us through navigating Transport Canada's regulations to fly legally, and through ground school. Looking back, I see Darek did a great job analyzing our flying style and our lifestyle and helped us choose exactly the gear we would have chosen for ourselves, if we had known then what we know now. I have loved the journey of this sport. Thanks Darek for making it safe and fun, and for giving us wings! Tremendous value for money.
