Evangelos Tsoukas - Flight CV


He was born in the 13th of May, 1970 in Athens-Kalogreza.  Today he lives in Maroussi. He has Studied Biology in Patras University. He has been working in several fields, but since 1996 he is a Pharmaceutical Industry employee, and now he is a Marketing Manager in a Biotech company.

He is spending his limited personal time, in art painting, playing music, constructing several things. During the past he used to make different sports like sport shooting, mountain bike and other, but his passion is the flight was stronger, since 1988 when he had his first Sailplane flight in Athens Tatoi airport, as a member of Athens Gliding Club.

The next years, he became a member of Patras Paragliding Club 1993, and he was lucky to experience the explosion of this new sport inside one of the biggest relevant clubs in Greece of that period. After 1999 he became a member of Athens and Olympus Air club with which he participated in national and international flying competitions until now. In 2002, he tried Hang gliders but he wanted something more regarding performance and very fast he moved to his first love, gliding. He took his solo with Athens Gliding Club in Kopaida airport after 3 months. At the same time he flew 3 Axis ultra light airplanes, and together with his flying colleague Spiros Gonatas he bought an Ultra light motor glider with which he has tenths of thousands of dreaming hours, thousands of repairing hours and hundreds of flying hours. He is an instructor since 2008 in ultra light 3 Axis airplanes, gliders and motor gliders.

His passion with maximizing flying performance brought him close to the study of meteorology, as important attribute to achieve better safety and better flights. The hard efforts to scientifically understanding of the air mass with practical flying experience gave him the opportunity to gain and share this knowledge with other athletes, through a number of seminars organized by Freedom Paragliding School, and other clubs from Thessaloniki, Patras and others. Since 2008 he has developed a website for Soaring Weather Forecasts with information as:

The Soaring Forecast Page - http://www.sky.gr/tsoukas

Parts of a Cross Country - Theory and Praxis book-dream he is preparing  - http://www.sky.gr/tsoukas/gnosis.htm

He has flown with several flying machines with more than 3.000 flying hours, but according to his feeling, nothing is comparable to paragliding. The strong connection with nature, and close friends relationships, after 20 years in the sky, offer the ultimate soul satisfaction.

As a member of Freedom Team, he has participated in several air games since 1994, with several achievements, as:

3rd place in the National Championships 2001, 2nd place in Papadates cup 2003, 5th place in overall during Aiolia Open 2006, 2nd place in the national championship in Kitheronas 2006, 1st team place with Freedom team in 2006 and other years, 3rd place in the National Gliding Competition 2008 and other. He has been a member of the Greek National Paragliding Team, and owns the Greek Distance record with a wooden ultra light sailplane (330km 2008).

His longest paragliding flight was during 2007 in Kalavrita, where after 4 hours in the sky, he landed close to the city of Sparti, 105 km OLC and 96 km free distance. His longest sailplane flight was 330 km OLC 2008, and the maximum altitude he has achieved was 4.5 km in a wave flight above Parnassos Mountain during 2008.


Unforgettable moments? Unlimited and indescribable.

He is dreaming of the 200km paragliding flight in Greece, but lets be realistic.

If we could summarize his long term philosophy in flight this would be:

"Deathly need to fly, but do not fly to die"

"The best pilot evolution is the slow evolution; you have to identify who you are and where is your target to go"

"The flight is finished when both your feet touch the ground"
