The Spanish acro ace is also a keen adventure seeker who has travelled the world in pursue of new landscapes to be seen from the sky. Horacio joined us in our second Thermal live show to talk about his last vol-bivouac adventure in the Indian Himalaya with Tom de Dordolot, this time for our English followers. The film covering it, “Higher ground” was recently released by Red Bull. We discussed what it is needed for flying in serious high mountains, how to assess the risks, what to bring in a vol-bivouac expedition, the relevance of having a good partner, how acro skills transfer to XC flight, and much more.
