That’s right, Kitti Virag from Budapest, Hungary is this year’s prize draw winner! Kitti bought her subscription as a gift for her boyfriend Gyula Fichtinger, also from Budapest Hungary. So Gyula is the lucky guy who will be flying a brand new paraglider in the new year. Nice gift Kitti!

Graham Eveille
Todd Sherman
