MEDIA & EXPERIENCE
Francisco Neri is a highly experienced project manager, producer, creative director, and aerial extreme athlete set out to show modern human flight performance & high-performance parachute flying to the world, in a way rarely seen.
Francisco brings his own unique professional experience and style of work. Redefining the words compromise and consistency. He is a multi talented aerial producer and athlete performing in front of the camera as well as behind it.
Exploring all facets of human flight and parachute flight is his overall mission, including 3-dimensional body flight, high-speed CRW, high-G formation spiraling maneuvers, precision landings, expedition mountain flying, and water swooping. Combining these experiences, he has stormed the competitive world defining the importance of trust and sportsmanship in these exciting new disciplines.
Discovering the unique realms of nature around the world, he has been pushing the limits of flight into a new ground by launching flight expeditions from the foothills of California to the Fjords of Norway dedicated to the challenge of taking human flight and canopy piloting to a new level with some of the most visually stimulating and exciting aerial flights demonstration to date.
Driven by the internal passion for human flight, Francisco and ActionEye provides a unique business opportunity with several ways to leverage your products and services and to attain profitability and exponential growth.
As one of the few high-performance parachute pilots in the world with the ability to provide the opportunity of performing high-speed demonstration jumps and landings into race tracks, off-road tracks, stadiums, golf courses and beaches. This serves as a great opportunity to have a parachute with the sponsor’s logo on it flying and landing at the venue in front of all spectators.
Exploring the unique realms of nature around the globe, Francisco has been pushing the limits of parachute flight to new heights by launching parachuting expeditions from the foothills of California to the giant granite fjords of Norway. Francisco is currently scheduling 3 extreme expeditions for 2017 ranging from the snowed covered peaks of France, the Rockie Mountains CO, and Utah. The opportunity exists for capturing never-before-seen footage of flights around places so remote that they’ve never even been hiked, much less flown
