Daniel Randall (Founder/
Daniel is a purpose-driven Professional Multisport Athlete channeling the positive experiences gained from a lifestyle of travel, extreme sports and hard work into the many successes he’s had in freestyle BMX, paragliding, PPG and speedflying, among other sports. Daniel began flying in 2004; he progressed quickly into paramotoring, acro, speedflying, cross country flying and his newfound love, BASE jumping. He founded Flystyle in 2008 and began providing world-class instruction to friends and hundreds of students. He has since branched out into selling the equipment and toys needed to keep up with him.
Justin is an experienced speedflyer, paraglider pilot, motorcycle stuntman, skydiver and BASE jumper. He worked in the structural engineering field for 10 years before he found his love for flying and falling. Initially, he started skydiving in Canada while on an engineering assignment. His addiction to parasports quickly became very obvious and irrepressible. He was subsequently laid off from his desk job (woohoo!) and spent the next year traveling, progressing and competing in skydiving, speedflying, paragliding, and BASE jumping. Since then, he's advanced steadily in each discipline and during this time he realized his appreciation for top-notch instruction. Justin decided to make teaching the dream of flight an integral part of his life and enjoys working with students from across the globe.
A third-generation skydiver, Flora started skydiving before she was born, with 30 pre-natal skydives! Her father, Tony Uragallo, is the creator of Tony Suits, and is the most recognized skydiving suit manufacturer. Since the 80's, Tony has influenced the skydiving sport with his suits, parachutes, and now wingsuits (Tony Wingsuits). --Gary Connery is the first man to land a wingsuit (without a parachute) using a Tony Wingsuit-- Flora has grown up in the flying world and her first-hand knowledge of the industry is a great asset to the FlyStyle family. Flora holds a C-license and a skydiving Coach rating, and is now working on her P2 license. You'll find Flora holding down the office, or as the support team in the field.
Nick Burden (Rigger/Innovator)
Nick Burden is a speedflyer, paraglider pilot, BASE jumper, skydiver, Flystyle's personal parachute rigger and all around boy wonder. He started flying paragliders at 15, and through that met some pilots from the "dark side". They convinced him to make his first skydive at 18 and it was all downhill from there, leading to BASE jumping and speedflying. If his feet are on the ground he's in the rigging loft creating new toys.
Jonathan Jelkin (Production Manager)
Jonathan got his start skydiving and riding sportbikes while growing up in the Midwest. He followed his passion for filming and editing to Los Angeles, where the warm weather and mountainous terrain allowed him to begin speedflying and paragliding. As he became an avid flyer, he began to fly locations all over the country. At a speedflying boogie in Idaho, he met Justin and Daniel. They've since teamed up for Flystyle video projects and other adventures in the sky.
Jon Malmberg (Instructor)

R.I.P. Matt Gold (Athlete)
Matt’s love for the mountains started at age 2 when his parents first put him on a pair of skis. Since then, he had become an experienced B.A.S.E. jumper, skydiver, paraglider, wingsuiter, speedflyer and big mountain skier. He traveled the world for the sports he loves, and competed in several international freeskiing competitions. These experiences helped him to sharpen his skills for speedflying in varying terrain and conditions. His passions led him to Utah where they not only have arguably the best snow on earth, but some of the best terrain for learning to speedfly. On a powder day, you would have found him on the ski slopes. Other days, he was speedflying the backcountry, Canyons or Point of the Mountain. Matt was very passionate about speedflying and shared his passion through teaching others. He was a brother in the sport and he will be missed. Fly free Matt
