Idris Birch

Idris learned to paraglide in 2007 at the age of 15, having grown up watching his father fly. Idris got his first paraglider long before his first car, and started competing in 2011. He especially loves racing along at full speed or flying close to awe-inspiring rock faces.

Idris now lives and works in Korea with Gin Seok Song and the rest of the R&D team, to whom he is affectionately known as "Iddy /E.D.".

Hometown: Aberystwyth, Wales

Resides: Young-in, Korea
