BIOGRAPHY

I was born in Mallorca and since my childhood my passion has always been aviation. I grew up in the countryside because I come from a farming family, but I discovered model aircraft and spent many years building, flying and racing them. This set me on a course for my absolute goal in life - to become a professional pilot.
As soon as I had enough money to study for my pilot’s license I went for it.

Since then, I have logged more than 13,000 hours on Airbus aircraft as the pilot and have flown mainly A310s, A319s, A320s, A321s and A330s. 
After the closure of the Air Comet airline, where I had worked for 10 years, I started working as a freelance pilot in other countries. I have lived in places like Nigeria, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam. 

Currently I am an examiner for the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (AESA) and I am also an Airbus and flight simulation instructor. 
Extreme sports are my passion and I practice paramotoring, paratrike, windsurfing, kitesurfing, motorcross, enduro, snow boarding, mountain biking, free diving and all the outdoor sports that combine adrenaline, nature and freedom. 

In my spare time I also like to design. I work with two engineers on new R&D inventions to improve some extreme sports. I discovered paramotoring several years ago and I fell in love with this sport because I stopped feeling like a pilot and aviator and instead to feel integrated in nature, like a bird. I like to fly without looking at my instruments and to simply fly for the feeling is gives me.

At the moment I am doing various aerial photography projects with the paramotor for National Geographic and other publications. I work with one of the best photographers in the world, Pep Bonet. We combine the best of our knowledge and make a fantastic team, fusing sport and work and always enjoying the safety and performance that Niviuk wings.
