A childhood dream
You grew up in Briançon, an ideal playground for novices?
« Yes, I grew up here and the area really does have a great flying potential. The winter paragliding sessions over the snow are truly unique. But it’s not necessarily the easiest place to start – there are other, more adapted spots in the Hautes-Alpes for beginners such as Ceillac in the Queyras area, Embrun, or even Serre-Chevalier. I’ve wanted to fly since I was little, so in parallel to my ski instructor training – which I never actually finished! – I prepped to become a paragliding instructor. I was only 18 when I started out, but the sport really grabbed me from the outset. »
