I find the element of air something special, and it has its own completely unique challenges: to be deep in a Berner Alpine side valley about to land, then with a lot of patience to find a thermal and be hovering above the 4,000-metre peaks is the best thing!

Besides flying I still do paraglider tandems. Actually, I’m always flying!
If this doesn’t work out, I’m a mountain guide, and organise tours to the North Pole or Greenland. In the meantime, I also work as a photographer or go hunting.
I was involved with Advance from the beginning, a few times as a test pilot, and later as a photographer. For me there’s no better paraglider brand, no question! :-)
Super easy to make and with me on all my expeditions.
