Special flights for the World’s Highest Forum



 Specialized training for high-altitude SAR and rescue work

Ivan Kristoff developed his flying skills over the rugged mountains of Bulgaria, and also flew heli-rope access and filming in Canada, Bulgaria and Dubai. And he stresses that the aerial rescue operations are not a destination for beginners.

“I’ve seen a lot of people from all over coming in and wanting to be a heli rope access tech,” he told Vertical Rescue Magazine His advice to such techs is, “Make sure you go and learn some good skills before you get into our Training Program at the Institute for Vertical and Aerial operations (.I.V.A.N.). Don’t expect just to learn the skills here. It’s not a place to go and give it a crack.”

Маке the international headlines with a new feat

We want to spread the message that volunteer rescuers can accomplish extreme adventures at extreme heights. Everest has been climbed by thousands of people since it was first scaled 75 years ago, but the E.V.E.R.E.S.T. Project organizer, wants to fly over and be the first rescue team that does it in a hot air balloon.

Push the limits of aerial photography

Volunteer rescuers will try to fly above Mount Everest and hopefully inspire others to inspire other volunteers to fly the world’s highest mountain. Ivan Kristoff will make a joint bid next year and fly to base Camp to explore the sight.

Everest  and make a record-setting flight with new technology and methodology for SAR training.
