Janusz Orłowski is 79 years old man, he’s still full of energy and zeal. There wouldn’t be anything special about it, but he flies. He’s paraglider. Flying is Janusz’s passion. When he’s in the air everything doesn’t matter, he’s just happy. Paragliding demands health, agility and staying in good shape. Grandpa consequently overcomes all the limitations related to his age. The younger friends usually help him, sometimes it happens that he trips or falls over, but it doesn’t discourage him. Just the opposite. Janusz says he will always fly, but with one difference. In the future he will fly “to the land without gravity”, without everyday problems, without any effort.
