Hi, my name is Petar Lončar. My discipline isparagliding aerobatic. I was born on 23 August 1986 in Belgrade, Serbia. My special talent is mac twist to heli. My philosophy of life is put all your energy into what you love, and the results will come. My favourite food isSerbian cuisine.
Petar Lončar is proud to call himself the first professional Serbian acro paraglider. He's been interested in all sorts of sports since he was born and at 18 years old he joined the military parachute unit so that he could train in the skies. After his military service, he started to concentrate on aerial sports and developed a fasincation with acro paragliding.
In Serbia there was virtually no acrobatic flying scene, but after his first live acrobatic flying encounter in 2007, Petar became inspired. He went on to perfect some of the most difficult tricks in acro paragliding, including infinity tumbling, which grabbed the attention of acrobatic flyers around the world. That same year, he also became the first Serb to fly in the Himalayas.
In the years that followed, Lončar has continued to compete in world acro cups and other aero events, perfecting his skills on expeditions and projects around the world, and achieving more than 70 BASE jumps from bridges and paragliders.
He also got the national record for the longest flight time and, together with the Bulgarian acro paraglider Veselin Ovcharov, he also took the world record for the most synchronised infinity tumbles – 181 turns, sustaining up to 7G in every revolution.
The pair founded the FLYtheEARTH team, exploring the most beautiful parts of the world from a bird's eye view. At their joint expedition in Pakistan, Peter set another national record, flying at 6,800m without oxygen – one of the most exhilarating moments of his life.
