Achieve New Heights in Search and Rescue Training

We are welcoming you to join us in a an exciting project that we will share with our friends and pilots from the Air Forces, foreign agencies and private aviation. This year we will explore new ways to train by taking advantage of the most advanced technology in mobile computing, medical devices, heart rate monitors, GPS positioning systems, etc. With a team of professional athletes, doctors and trainers, we will document our progress,  explore new ways for training endurance under pressure and measure  our results. All data will be shared with volunteer and professional rescue teams at no cost to them. In fact we have discussed the partnership in networking with pilots and people who are interested to participate in this initiative.

ZERO-G SPACE ART CONTEST

In 2012, Ivan Kristoff participated in Fortis Swiss Made Watches Space Art Contest. In 2015 Ivan is organizing an Aerial Rope Access Photo Shoot Experience around the world as part of his “Mentors and Apprentices” Program. This Arts Initiative brings experienced pilots, rope access technicians, artists, musicians and aerial photographers with highly promising young artists to collaborate a one-to-one mentoring relationship. The program will start during Dubai Helishow  2016  and we hope to initiate enriching dialogue between artists of different generations, and cultures, fulfilling its aim to make a significant contribution to the visual presentation of the aviation industry.   More

FROM UNDER THE GROUND

Ivan Kristoff has been involved in several high-profile construction projects, in which he utilized systems and solutions that he learned from caving. At early age,  he dreamed of going where no one has gone before. That was a daring ambition for a child, who had no knowledge of  the dangers and obstacles of achieving such a dream. He was naive, as a kid could be naive about in this childish ambition. But soon, when he enter the underground vertical world, he realized that being small and naive can help you achieve your dreams and go where the others can not. More…

FROM UNDER THE WATER

The Underwater Exploration teammates of the International Vertical Access Network provide a multidisciplinary training for rope access at extreme heights and depths.

 

Team members are encouraged to train in harsh and versatile  environment in order to be prepared to work efficiently extreme conditions and crisis situations. We have a strong bond with the under water sports, because work at high level of risks and rapid access aerial/ vertical operations require the learning of proper breathing and relaxation techniques.

FROM MY HEART

“I would like to thank all my friends and partners who stood by me in some of the most daring aerial experimental project and training in difficult and extremely risky situations. Many times we broke the helicopter manufacturing restrictions of MI 17 helicopter with the Bulgarian Air Forces Tactical Aviation. Special thanks to the Commanders and members of Bulgarian  Air Base 24 and 26, Air Police Wing (Special Air Surveillance Unit), Gendarmeria Air Wing, the Faculty of  “Firefighting and Safety” of the Academy of the Ministry of Interior and volunteer rescuers with whom we had a very fruitful experience.

I greatly appreciate their friendship and bravery. With some of them we went into extreme and scary  situations in the air, be we got out of them safely and with very unique experience.”
