I would Land in your Backyard!

By launching his challenge of crossing the Alps in Vol-Bivouac mode, Antoine Boisselier left with his paraglider in the footsteps of Didier Favre with the desire, like him, to share the adventure with the greatest number! The Vol-Bivouac as he designed it, is a journey with the winds, a journey alternating mountain hikes, big distances XC flights.

Fly the Alps

Fly the Alps is about a trip of two good old friends Ludo and Nico who are set off for an adventure through the Alps. Because you can experience challenges close to home they decided to paraglide from Slovenia to Monaco. To spice up the experience a little bit they also climb the highest summits of each of the seven countries they fly over.

Fly the Summit

Twin brothers Tim and Ant Green will attempt to break the altitude world record with bioethanol for tandem powered paragliders by flying side-by- side to over 5,000m above Western Europe’s highest mountain, Mont Blanc – 4,810m. The Americans tricked out their high-end parachutes and motors in order to get themselves soaring where even birds fear to fly.

Flying to 8000 Metres

A professional adventurer since 2014, Antoine Girard is a former rock climber and high-altitude mountaineer. In July 2016 he spent a month in Pakistan, flying a remote, challenging and ground-breaking 1250km solo through the Karakoram with his tent. With only himself for company, he flew through this stunning mountain range and reached 8157m of altitude to see Broad Peak from above.

Blutch

Glide

Glide Bir Billing is a journey of the quest for adventure in its various forms. Set in the Himalayas, it is the story of village Bir and its journey on being discovered as one of the best sites in the world for paragliding – from being a small village oblivious to this sport to becoming a Paragliding World Cup site.

Big Speed

Filmed in the French and Italien Alps in 2018, Toto and Steph are ambitious skiers and paragliders since a long time. Combining their skills in search of true adventure, they set off on a journey through the Alps with their speed riding equipment. It seems extreme to those of us who haven’t had the opportunity to indulge in these kind of sports where fear plays a key role.
