My name is Nikolay Kalaydziev,
and I am a licensed pilot.
I want to set a Guinness record
for experiencing negative 7.5G
with a civil aircraft.
I am innovator not imitator.
How everything started?
Flying requires a combination of skills, experience, courage and knowledge. Ever since I was a child I have been enjoying similar activities.
Flying was not my kid’s dream job. The natural course of events brought me to aviation. Bikes and motor racing provoked my desire for flying in 2010. What I liked most were the long flight phase jumps, which helped me realize my passion for flying.
Why I want to set a Guinness record?
I want to show how far a man can go, what I am capable of and test my physical and psychological limits. Setting a Guinness record is one step forward to my goal to become an astronaut.
Bulgarians are natural born leaders. Our country is famous for its astronauts. General Lieutenant Georgi Ivanov and General Major Alexander Alexandrov are pilots with profound experience and skills. They are role models for the Bulgarian society.
What makes me believe I will succeed?
My strong motivation and physical condition allow my body to work as if I am on the ground at high altitudes and perform perfectly under very heavy loads and harsh conditions. This is due to a rare feature of my blood circulation. My blood flow is 350 cm / sec, which is three times faster than of normal human (120 cm / s). This is because of my resonant heart beats pumping the blood at 50 beats per minute, which is considered to be a genetic gift. In addition, I have been tested in a Hyperbaric chamber at a height of 12,000 feet (4,000 meters) and my blood saturation was 97%.
