Apart from being a civilian pilot, capt. Krešo holds a Master's degree in mechanical engineering and is a motor vehicle constructor and aeronautics engineer by vocation. He used to work as a flight instructor and before he founded Jung Sky with Vedran, he flew the Fokker 100.

One of his earliest memories in life are related to observing aircrafts and his desire to fly. He also remembers the time when he enjoyed composing all sorts of small aircrafts and he really loved to draw. Mainly aircrafts, but also pretty much anything associated with transport or construction.  

He's quite a perfectionist by nature and does not like injustice. He's also not a fan of thinking or acting in patterns, but rather always tries to think in a slightly different and innovative way.

He's a gourmet and loves high-quality beers and wines. He adores music and actually has a special connection with it. Once upon a time he was a singer in an unknown rock band, while as a student he spent 3 years as a tenor in an academic choir where he discovered the ingenuity and beauty of classical music. He generally prefers rock, but from time to time he also likes to explore some alternative, different directions.

His biggest love is his family with whom he would love to spend more time. He enjoys being around friends although relaxes best when he's alone, observing some beautiful seaside view or any other extraordinary landscape. When he manages to catch some free time, he loves to fly small planes, e.g. Cessna 150, because that feeling, he states, is like being in a parallel world that knows no problems.

Although a professional geek by occupation, he ended up in the world of aviation. Nevertheless, computer bits and bytes still obey him without question. He on the other hand listens to his wife Jasna, although he does like to run away and go skiing with the guys and/or the kids every once in a while. 

He’s a great aficionado of nautical activities which he practices with his family as much as possible. He also compels himself to go running on a regular basis, he likes cycling and is engaged in astrophotography. He doesn’t like when that wonderful hobby gets confused with astrology. Not one bit.

You can always count him in for a hot barbecue and a cold beer which actively reverses the effects of the before mentioned recreational activities.

Being someone who’s always in a great mood and smiling practically all the time, Jasna’s reputation as the most positive and most cheerful person in (& out of) the office is very much deserved. 

A happy marriage with two kids is certainly one of the reasons behind her smiles. She is also in love with the summer, the sun and the sea, so she uses that time of the year to ‘stock up’ on positive energy.

The only place for darkness in her life are the horrors and thrillers which she singles out as her favorite movie genres, although her favorite movie is I-had-the-time-of-my-life Dirty Dancing.

She traveled a lot, seen many countries and says her affection towards Dubai and New York is, to this day, still unmatched.

He’s been in aviation his entire life although, when talking with him, you won’t see any signs of burnout.

On the contrary. He loves the fact there are no two identical days in this industry. It boosts his energy and motivation.

I can’t imagine myself doing something else. Without the everyday adrenaline, I would probably collapse”, he states.

He believes a great team is the backbone of everything, so investing in people is by far the best investment you can do.

He doesn’t like to spend weekends in Zagreb, so he often visits the seaside during summer or the mountains during winter. He often goes cycling, likes badminton and loves a good barbecue with friends.

Music is an important part of his life and when the adrenalin starts to decline, he puts on Skunk Anansie.

Following Vedran’s example, he also listens to Jasna, no questions asked :)

Capt. Obrazovic (nicknamed ‘Obre’) has been a pilot since he was 16. He’s a longtime president of Aero Club Velika Gorica and he has two hobbies: sports aviation and road cycling which he enjoys as much as possible. 

He’s a big fan of the Apple brand and somewhat of a connoisseur of rock music and all its derivatives. From time to time, he also likes to indulge himself with classical music and some alternative musical directions from Croatia and the Balkan area. 

He’s loves handball, football and Dinamo FC, although his favorite color is not blue, but orange :)

He’s definitely a summer-guy, he loves Adriatic fish and olive oil and is happiest when in central Dalmatia (Croatia). When thirsty, he’ll pick mineral water with lemon almost every time.

He’s been happily married for over 20 years now and is a father of a 9-year old son who, Obre proudly states, is a natural in mathematics and football.

Capt. Ante is happily married and a father of two, actively in aviation since he was 18 years old. He graduated in July 2000 as a military pilot after which he remained in the military the next 9 years.

Outside the cockpit, he is very active.

He likes hiking and swimming which helps him successfully achieve fitness balance because - he has no problem admitting it - he loves food, loves making pizzas and likes almost all types of beer.

He’s a fan of a good espresso, enjoys watching a good boxing or a tennis match and is very good at chess (but he’s aware that’s perhaps just his imagination).

My father was a sailor, I am in the air, so only my mother, who was a teacher, left both feet firmly on the ground", says Filip, who wanted to be a pilot since the 2nd grade of primary school.

His first encounter with aviation was in 2006 as part of ground operations services in Trade Air. Immediately after he received the first paycheck, he started saving for pilot training. However, before he started piloting for Jung Sky, his career path led him to a 5-star company Qatar Airways.

“The time I spent in QA helped me sharpen my skills in the customer relations segment which, in combination with my knowledge of a wide range of aviation matters – especially charter operations - and acquired flying skills, provided me with excellent predispositions for the world of business aviation.”

His wife Maja is also in aviation, so they always have something to talk about. They are parents to two beautiful little girls. In addition to spending time at home with his girls which he loves the most, Filip likes travelling and enjoying a good beer at the end of a hard-working day. 

He is not a fan of the classic 8-16 working hours, so he really likes Monday mornings when he’s off duty and everybody’s rushing to work while he’s enjoying his coffee and checking out what’s new in the newspaper.

The first thing we learned about Andro is actually one of the most intriguing pieces of information we’ve discovered about Jung Sky people through this team page.

Believe it or not, before he set his mind to become a pilot, Andro worked in geodesy for 13 years. We haven’t ‘dug’ further into the reasons for this major change, but maybe we will in one of our future blogposts :)

He loves hiking and cycling, enjoys riding his 40-year-old Vespa and admits he can’t get enough of the view of the Alps from the air.

After a hard day of flying, the thing he’s looking forward to the most are the charms of a local cuisine, and he says that – for a long time now - he has been planning to bicycle through all the areas he usually flies above, although he still hasn’t managed the time to actually do it.

He has been in aviation for more than 20 years and considers piloting a great choice of everyday challenges.

A proud husband and more recently a father who loves to spend time in a family environment, either in the warmth of their home, taking walks in the outdoors or a nearby park.

He is a recreational type of a guy, so he often goes for a run, a swim or light hiking, but his favorite is gliding.

He likes to reminisce about the two summers he worked on Hvar Island, providing flights for skydivers and he really enjoys flying smaller aircrafts.

Soon he will become a lecturer and an instructor in pilot school.

After spending countless hours in airplanes as a passenger, Sven decided to put aside his show-business career and go on to enjoy the view from the cockpit.

While on the ground, he torments student pilots with aerospace medicine and aviation psychology and still occasionally enjoys to play with lights and laser shows on large concerts.

He has firm plans to find some spare time in the future to enjoy his hobbies such as skiing, movies and playing the drums, unless he decides to pursue a career of an astronaut.

He has been in love with aviation since the 7th grade of primary school when he first flew in the cabin of an MD-82 plane from Pula to Dubrovnik, across the entire Croatian coastline.

From that day on, all of his decisions related to future schooling were related to one single goal: to enter the cockpit one day and fly an aircraft.

When he is not at the airport or on a plane, you will most likely find him in the company of friends and family. He loves team sports, so he often plays football on one of Zagreb's futsal pitches. Although born in Rijeka, he spent most of his adult life in Zagreb which is why his love for the blue jersey of FC Dinamo Zagreb prevailed.

"Not being at the stadium when the team plays their most important matches is not an option", he says with a smile.

He is a passionate 'gamer' and a fan of good beer and fine fish.

Apart from football, he also loves hiking. As some of his greater successes he singles out the conquest of Triglav and Grintovac in Slovenia.

However, his favourite occupation is to spend his free days swimming and sunbathing on the beach with friends. “Without any doubt, I would swap all winters for just one summer”, he proclaims firmly.

He’s a very proud uncle of four nieces (three girls and a boy).

One of the newest members of the JS team adores aviation and when asked how and when he fell in love with it, he says that as a kid he lived near the airport and constantly watched as planes and helicopters flew by.

Spending quality time with his family is very important to him, as is the combination between living in Croatia and being a part of the aviation industry.

One other significant part of his life are sports activities - tennis, skiing, football and bicycling. He likes to ride his mountain bike as much as possible, especially downhill and through forest tracks.

He’s an enormous fan of the Croatian national football team which is why his family’s already used to his “disappearances” during World Cups or Euro Championships.

“We’ll see how my new bosses will feel about this”, he states with a smile.

Dalibor, a major travel-lover, has been in tourism and sales his whole life.

In his schedule of out-of-office activities, recreational swimming is present at least 4 times a week, and at least once a week he hikes on the top of Mount Medvednica (Sljeme).

If you go around his office, there’s a good chance you will hear some jazz or blues rhythms, he loves red wines, Mediterranean cuisine and is a big fan of Game of Thrones (he was born in King’s Landing :)).

Although people don't really like to talk about their wishes that remained unfulfilled, he has no problem to single one out: airedale terrier.

First and foremost, Richard Gere is not his uncle, but he wouldn’t mind it if he was.

An air traffic engineer by profession, he loves aviation and the engineering approach to resolving problems. Math, physics, logic and natural sciences are his basis, while sports activities are an extension.

A father of a 4-year-old daughter who, like her father, loves people, travelling and discovering new things.

He used to be actively involved in kayaking for about 10 years.

He loves running, swimming, playing football, going to the gym, table tennis and windsurfing during the summer. Loves cars and motorcycles and is a proud owner of an old-timer: a MZ 175 ES/2 from 1973.

When possible, he likes to enjoy a good movie or a documentary. The Devil’s Advocate (1997) is one of his favorite films.

Our newest sales team member has multiple years of experience in sales and client relations, and has been in aviation since 2014.

He’s a big fan of traveling and getting to know new cultures and destinations and when asked about the most interesting experiences so far, he mentions Cuba, Seychelles, USA and Russia, which was particularly favoured by his wife Ana. Although he was sure that the experience of New York would not be surpassed by any other city, his favourite destination so far is actually Saint Petersburg.

Among domestic (Croatian) places, he loves the island of Rab, where he has been spending his summers for the last 13 years.

Once or twice a week he likes to take care of his physique by playing football, and he’s also a huge fan of rafting, especially the one on rivers Una and Tara. But at the end of the day, he prefers to spend his free time with his wife and sons Toma and Jura.

He is a passionate Eurojackpot player and says he has been playing it from the very beginning 😊 When he gets hungry, he always prefers meat over fish, especially if it is from the grill. "In recent years, I have been enjoying eating fish a lot more than before, but it’s still not comparable to a meat dish. After all, I do come from a continental family…”, he concludes.

Once a recreational futsal player, Ivan is these days grateful for a knee injury that removed him from contact sports and helped him discover hiking, especially through Samobor highlands, but lately also to other peaks nearby or in the more distant surroundings.

Whenever possible, he goes on such trips with the kids who, semi-dependent on wireless networks, slowly realize that, while there may be no signal in the forest, the connection with nature, people around them and with themselves – is far better.

He likes to surprise his family with delicious meals, but in a way that – by putting a little more effort and with longer preparation – he turns the everyday-ordinary-meals into true feasts and rituals. In that way, an ordinary homemade pizza looks just as good as the one from the best pizzeria.

The kids giving their praise and “destroying” everything on the menu is the best reward for his efforts, although it is accompanied by enviable looks of his better half who does not like when someone else enters the kitchen territory :)

Having been part of aviation since the beginning of her professional career, she’s often kidding that she wouldn’t know how to do anything else.

Although her job is very serious, she doesn’t consider herself to be too serious :)

When she’s not planning flights, planning activities for her family is her top priority and her favorite thing to do in free time is to be outdoors or take a family trip.

She loves traveling and getting to know new cultures. Visiting every continent at least once and going to Madagascar are at the top of her wish list. 

She loves animals, especially dogs and if he could speak, her Jack Russell terrier Milo would corroborate this.

She’s always in a mood for hanging out with friends, playing board games or a game of Belot.

She loves summer and exploring the islands in Croatia. Her favorite is Vis Island although she's aware there are a lot of islands in Croatia she has yet to discover properly. 

She considers herself to be a gourmet, she’s curious, direct and very organized which, in her line of business, is an extremely important quality.

She loves kids, animals and nature, especially flowers, and given the fact she is a romantic, in her free time she likes to enjoy a good, romantic-type movie.

A great admirer of nature, especially the forest areas. For relaxation, he likes to just walk around the woods with not a living (human) soul in sight.

After the outdoors, he considers being at home, enjoying a barbecue and a cold beer, to be the next best thing. 

He’s a big fan of science fiction movies, although – he adds - mostly the ones that are at least somewhat realistic.

He started to organize quiz nights, but it remains to be seen whether or not this will become a true hobby.

He has been in love with aviation since he was a kid when two friends gave him small sized assemble-it-yourself plastic aircrafts for his 10th birthday.

Plastic aircraft modeling, aero clubs, ‘spotting’ at airports and, of course, schooling eventually all played their part in his ‘conquest’ of the private pilot license. The combination of managing a reliable machine, the heights, extraordinary scenery from above and a phenomenal feeling during a flight created an unbreakable connection between him and aviation.

I am happy to be part of this wonderful team and to be able to participate in further development of the beautiful story of Jung Sky”, he says proudly.

In his free time, he likes to hang around with friends and attend gourmet meetings, if possible with a barbecue, because - you know what they say - a well fed man is a happy man :)

Besides airplanes, he loves automobiles and related sports like the Formula 1 and WRC.

He’s got a very good eye for photography, so it's not rare to see his photos of Jung Sky jets on our social media. He photos everything and anything, although he’s happiest when he captures great shots of the sky at night or some interesting extreme sports scenes.

Stipe describes himself as an artist who has adapted to the demands of the digital age.

Ever since high school, I am in love with sculpture. Computers are my second great love so 3D modeling is in a way the best compromise between the two.”

He is also engaged in beekeeping because it relaxes him, and – in the times his schedule allows it - he likes to go sailing. He is a very curious person, so it is not uncommon for him to dismantle things just to see how they work.

He used to travel a lot and he liked getting to know different parts of the world.

Now I prefer to be at home and watch cartoons with my son or enjoy some quality time with friends, having a glass of red wine or a game of pinball and chatting about all kinds of interesting ideas.”

The man is an aviation encyclopedia.“ (quoting pretty much anybody from Jung Sky when asked about Zvonimir Vedriš)

Zvonko Vedriš, our long-time Postholder Continuing Airworthiness, joined Jung Sky in 2011 and on January 1, 2021 he started his well-deserved retirement days.

Out of all Jung Sky members, past and present, he has been part of the aviation industry the longest. He was among the first to join the team during Jung Sky's beginnings and his contribution to building the company's reputation and its success is immeasurable.

A person who, with his rich knowledge of the business and the aviation industry in general, but also with his warmth, honesty, gratitude and very likable sense of humor, conquers everyone around him with incredible ease.

Zvonko, we wish you a pleasant and happy retirement. Thank you for all the beautiful moments, shared knowledge and experiences. You're welcome to stop by at our HQ any time!
