BGD Team Pilots Meeting 2021
Thanks to all the Team Pilots who joined the get-together in Laragne, France this weekend (9-11 July). It was great to meet everyone, to share the fun, laughter, ideas and airtime.
Pilots came from all over – from short-commuting French to dedicated travellers from as far away as Colombia and Qatar. Free-flyers and paramotorists all enjoyed three sunny, flyable days. Demo wings were booked out and tested (thanks Mario) and everyone filled their flying boots by day.
In the evenings the educational side was fulfilled by Bruce and Tyr Goldsmith (welcome and Laragne site tips), Tom Lolies (glider design) Franck Largeault and Ant Green (social media and video production) before the long tables were drawn up and BGD family members caught up over dinner.
Bene Bös won the photo competition with the photo of the Luna 2 on Chabre ridge in the gallery above. (Thanks also to Sylvain Nobile for the selfie over Lac de Serre Ponçon, taken on Day 1 at St Vincent les Forts).

Thanks to the lovely people of Camping de Montéglin in Laragne who were perfect hosts, and drivers Niek and Sylvain.
