Sylvain Nobile


Sylvain started paragliding with mini-wings, being mainly interested in hike & fly and soaring. But then he became more and more attracted by XC flying, so he started flying with a “regular” glider in May 2015. It was a BGD BASE, and he felt in love with this wing! It was a pleasure to improve his skills with this glider, discovering XC and flying more and more over the following years. He really like distance flights, but also hike & fly. He took part in his first hike & fly competition in 2018, and would like to continue doing them. He also loves to share his passion for flying by doing tandem flights. He loves to do some XC flights in tandem with his girlfriend Julie!
