Bruno Vassel IV (B4) started flying gliders 26 years ago. He uploaded his first soaring video attempt onto YouTube in Sept of 2007. Since then, Bruno’s soaring videos have been watched millions of times and have introduced many new people to the sport of flying gliders and soaring.
Bruno has organized 11 soaring camps/contests in Utah since 2013. These events have been mixed formats, everything from OLC/XC fun camps, to regionals, to mountain flying training camps, to multiple national contests. These soaring events have consistently sold out with the max 65 gliders in attendance with still dozens of pilots on the waiting lists. Utah has proven itself to be a very popular place to come to a soaring event and fly.
Bruno has around 1,600 total hours flying and owns an ASW-27, Phoebus A, and for power flight, a Cessna T210 which he enjoys taking his wife and three kids on trips.
