Harold van Veldhuizen
I had my first solo flight on the 21th of june 2014. Before, as a child, I’ve always been obsessed with the sky. Now I get to live this dream among a great group of people who I can call family. On the 31th of July 2021, at the 3rd slalom championships in Jutrosin (PL), I had my first “Hit On Pylon” and made an epic dive into the water. This was followed by an amazing journey upwards, towards a new future!
My name is Jillis Slingerland and I live in Putten.
As a little boy I often went on Saturday evenings with my parents to watch airplanes where people jumped out. I loved seeing this and couldn’t wait for Saturday night again. It is therefore only logical when I myself was of the age to follow the AFF (Accelerated Free Fall), individual free fall parachute jumping training that I also followed this.
I did skydiving for a while and then switched to paramotor flying. Here I got to know Harold van Veldhuizen, who subsequently enthused me to participate in the slalom competitions. I have been doing this for quite some time now and with great pleasure. With a smile on my face I start every race both at home and abroad with healthy excitement to fly a great race.
I am an entrepreneur, which sometimes entails a high workload. Flying gives me positive energy to fly around after a working day. What could be nicer to do this during sunset.
