Hello my name is Constantine Pappous, but
you can call me Gus. I'm 36 years old and into surfing & fishng. Until the age of 22 I lived in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where my family was in the restaurant business. My father owned lots of restaurants when I was growing up. Though, I'm not into that line of work.
I moved to Indialantic, Florida, thats near Sabastian Inlet, where I
tried to be a professional surfer. We all have are dreams. That one never came
true. I'm a good surfer, but not in the pro's class. Anyway I moved to
Panama City Beach, Florida, in 1996, worked as a lifeguard, rented jet skis,
and ran jet ski tours around Shell Island. That was work!
Then came to best day of my life. The day I first saw it. It was
beautiful, graceful. I was in love....it was the day I saw my first Flyingboat...it was love at first sight.
I met the pilot, Danny M, and I told him I wanted
to learn how to fly it. Ten hours of flight time and I soloed it myself, having no previous flying experience. I was hooked. Power hangliding that was my drug...
I bought Danny's used one in 1998. Now I'm a dealer for the Polaris Company of Italy.
I was a Test Pilot for a company in Texas and have been a flight instructor for over 3 year now.
And life is good.
If there's one thing for sure is that you will truly love this craft. As
sure as Death & Taxes...
Life is good. But better with a Flyingboat
