From an Airforce pilot to private rescue missions – an Israeli story

January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Hear a dramatic lecture from Nadav Palmach, starting with the loss of his younger sister, Hagar, while she was hiking in the Negev mountains. In his story, Nadav will reveal his path and evolution from a pilot in the Israeli Airforce to becoming a unique rescuer, starting with conventional helicopters and ending up inventing a unique rescue method with a Paraglider, flying in total darkness to rescue human lives and animals around the world, where others have failed before.

The lecture is embedded with astonishing photos and videos from his journeys, including icebergs in Antarctica, flying over erupting volcanoes in Hawaii, jumping over a massive waterfall in Iceland, flying over the Maldives while hundreds of dolphins below, and crossing 2000 km over Africa alone with no support, encountering tribes that have never seen Western civilization, and emergency landing beside lions.
