More Info

By attending this presentation you will become aware of rope access scenarios that happen at the height of over 500 meters off the ground. How many times you have to multiply the expected time to complete a regular job up there in the air and learn how violent can be the winds at that height, etc.

More Info

During Dubai Helishow 2012 a concept that can open a new chapter in the aviation, helicopter safety and aerial rescue history was announced.

E.X.T.R.E.M.E. Magazine

Ivan Kristoff has created CLUB EXTREME ( E.X.T.R.E.M.E. – studEnt’s eXtreme Team for Rescue, aErial and Maritime Emergеncy) – a new way to participate in extreme rope access and motor sports. He sponsors and supports the initiatives of young and prominent students, who dare to enter the vertical world. The Club develops specialized training for aerial and vertical operations, work at extreme heights and sports.

ROPE ACCESS PHOTOGRAPHY: Altitude with Attitude

This collection of photos and essay represent the scope of work in the artistic and professional endeavor of the EIGER principal in the period of year 2002-2005. As Prof. Pascal Michelucci of the University of Toronto wrote that Ivan’s amazing photographic work has found a great historic venue where it will be showcased in the national capital of his own native country. In his letter address for the opening of Ivan’s exhibition in the Bulgarian National Assembly Building in Sofia, he wrote: “You can feel proud of such an achievement. The photo exhibit which you were contemplating when you took my Communication, Culture and Information technology course has now became a reality. Your efforts are being acknowledged and rewarded in a memorable manner… I am sure that many more successes will follow”.

10th Anniversary Book

This is just an ideat to create a Limited Edition Book of 10 copies for the 10th Anniversary of Dubai Helishow 2014.  It can be given as a specuial gift to the 10 exhibition partners and supporters of Ivan Kristoffs in Dubia. They will receiv a hard copy of the book and link  the 1oth Anniversary e-book to their web sites, social media mixes, IPhone, Android, Windows 8 and other smart-phone and notebook applications.

Aerial stunts for the music

Music is the best way to promote a message. That is why Ivan Kristoff experimented with young and talented musicians Kristo and Svetlio Kislev to produce the rap hit “Fire off“. Through it Ivan showcased the light features of his client a Swiss Made Watch manufacturer. The helicopter stunts were performed by Spider-Man Ivan Kristoff. They were the pinnacle element in the subject line of the video. It is entirely captured at “Riu Pravets Resort” on the lake in the town of Pravec.

Brand Enhancement through the music

Music, sports and art associated with the source of energy that stimulates us to be active. This combination brought together Ivan and Kiril Milchev who aim to attract younger audiences, show them by inspiring and motivating ways how to use energy in a positive and useful direction.

“Mentors and Apprentices” Program

This Arts Initiative brings experienced pilots, rope access technicians, artists, musicians and aerial photographers with highly promising young artists to collaborate a one-to-one mentoring relationship. The programme will start during Dubai Helishow  2014  and we hope to initiate enriching dialogue between artists of different generations, and cultures, fulfilling its aim to make a significant contribution to the visual presentation of the helicopter industry. This project is initiated by Ivan Kristoff, who is an official exhibition partner of the Dubai Helishow.

Mid Air Rope accesS – M.A.R.S.

M.A.R.S. is a pioneering project for the aerospace safety and high-rise industry. The project is initiated by Ivan Kristoff after the completion of the very first rope access work on the Antenna Mast of CN Tower (553m.), the world’s tallest structure in 2003.  For this job Ivan had to create innovative high rise Emergency Rescue Plan and rewrite the rules for conventional air rescue from super high rise buildings. The plan includes aerial extraction of Ivan’s team from the top of the Skypod Observation deck and the vertical wall of the 100 meters tall Antenna mast.  The approximate height for this job was at the elevation of 500m.

Hat-trick
During Dubai Helishow 2012 Ivan Kristoff presented the M.A.R.S. Wireless Video Conference and announced a concept that can open a new chapter in the aviation, helicopter safety and aerial rescue. Last year, the biggest helicopter show in MENA was held at the Grand Stand, Meydan Hotel, Meydan Racecourse. At this event Ivan presented, for the very first time in the world, the concept of the Ultimate Aerial Rescue. Further, the concept was shaped in the term M.A.R.S., which focuses on three separate, but related topics of:

M.A.R.S. – Mid Air Recovery System
M.A.R.S.Maritime Air ResponS
M.A.R.S. Mid Air Rope accesS

“I  keep the tradition to present innovative ideas to the constantly increasing high rise building development and the world’s helicopter industry.  Now with my partners, we will write a new page in the development of air rescue operations on super high-rise buildings. Before I did the very first rope access work and emergency response on the exterior of the inaccessible places of the tallest tower in the world, I practiced rappelling with a longer rope than the whole length of the CN Tower. For this job, I had three Contingency plans for aerial extraction of my personnel.”, says Kristoff, known as the Canadian Spiderman.

For the presentation “Vertical Reference Long-Line External Cargo Ground Training course”, Ivan Kristoff will provide a course segment on Class D Human External Cargo Vertical rescue. He will bring us current with the Human External Cargo rules and regulations as well as equipment and mission. For the presentation “M.A.R.S. Presentation”, Ivan Kristoff will  explain what is extreme rope access on super high-rise buildings, above 200 meters, what is the difference between conventional and industrial rope access,  how the technicians must be prepared for extreme and harsh working conditions. It will cover the experience of the very first suspended access at heights above 500 meters and possible worst case scenarios, their prevention and the fundamentals of specialized equipment.

Web TV

Some of the concepts for this project were presented in the near 12 minute Prime Time News on New7 TV. The preferred time and date when you can see  our presentation  will be announced in the first episode of   Ivan Kristoff’s pilot project ” Extreme with friends” TV series.

Photo exhibition “Driven by Heights”
This exhibition is not just portraying the visible world of vertical access and helicopter rappelling operations at extreme heights. Rather, it depicts the hidden areas of extremely tall buildings, not accessible for the general public. Some of the designated areas for remote photography, where few of the  photos were taken, are accessible only by a few men and the best professional rope access experts. Ivan Kristoff  a Canadian artist, presented his unique images of his work at extreme heights. These photos have captured the element of danger of a series of innovative projects in Canada, USA and Bulgaria. Some of them show the first rope access work at the inaccessible areas of the tallest building ins the world. They gives us a “bird’s eye view” of these operations. This perspective, gives the observer a unique view from an angle that captures a stunning picture of the vertical environment.
For the first time, Ivan broght together this collection of aerial and remote access photography. This exhibition will showcase some of his achievements with Air Force Tactical Aviation Corps, Air Police and the Faculty of Fire Protection Engineering & Emergency Control. This exhibition will demonstrate the technical accomplishments of men who have dedicated their life to achieve new heights in public safety and emergency response. These brave men have created new frontiers in the vertical world.  Some of them have created new categories for “The Guinness Book of World Records” as part of their constant search for exploring new dimensions in emergency response and rescue.
