Jimmy Pacher

Born in 1972 in Canazei (Val di Fassa, Dolomiti Mountains, north Italy), Jimmy Pacher is one of the most successful paraglider pilots in the world. He taught himself to fly at the age of 13 or 14 with friends, and entered the competition scene in 1989. He has been with Gin Seok Song since 1996, following the designer to his new company, Gin Gliders.

Jimmy is Gin Gliders importer in Italy. Activities outside paragliding are also important for Jimmy, and he likes to spend time diving for fish. This demanding sport involves holding your breath underwater and waiting silently for a fish to swim past and be harpooned.
