Pilot's pages


I started paragliding with mini wings being mainly interested by hike and fly and soaring. But then I was more and more tempted by XC flying, so I started flying with a “regular” glider in may 2015. It was a BGD Base, and I felt in love with this wing ! It was a pleasure to improve my skills with this glider, discovering XC and flying more and more over the following years. 
So I really like distance flights, but also hike and fly. I took part in my first hike and fly competition in 2018, and that was a great experience ! I also love to share my passion flying tandem. It's also very nice to do XC flights in tandem with my girlfriend Julie ! 


Some 100+ km flights (like 133km triangle between Grenoble and Annecy)
Distance record holder of the flying site "Vérel" (127km triangle) 
3rd place at the Hike&Fly competition "Trotte et Vole" in 2018
Lot of happy flights with friends !
