The Bauges Parapent team

Bauges Parapente is a team of people who are passionate about flying, wild open spaces and various mountain sports. Whether it’s during a tandem flight or a training session, our team of certified instructors will share with you their love for paragliding and the Bauges mountain range. We look forward to getting to know you!

Thomas is a multitasker who consistently juggles several projects at once, projects that are always connected to nature and the mountains. His love for the Bauges area and paragliding is what lead him to create Bauges Parapente after becoming a certified instructor. Through this new adventure, he enjoys introducing people to the beauty of his favorite mountain range, while training pilots who will also ensure its preservation.


Audrey is the voice you will hear if you give us a call. She is always smiling and very welcoming, and also a native English speaker. She will be able to answer any question you may have about tandem flights or trainings with loads of details, as she is just as passionate about paragliding and the Bauges mountain range as our instructors.


Julien had the chance to discover paragliding at a young age, allowing him to progress quickly! He started with cross-country flying and then tried his hand at on-site flying, acrobatics and vol-biv (long distance flying with camping along the way). Before becoming a paragliding instructor known for his good sense of humor, he worked as a sales representative for leading paragliding brands, giving him extensive knowledge of flying equipment.


Valentin has been immersed in paragliding since childhood thanks to his father. At the age of 16, he joined the Pôle Espoirs and started training for high-level competitions where he performed quite well. Since obtaining his instructor certification, Valentin became an expert of flying in the Vosges mountain range, having spent several seasons there as an instructor. This year, it’s the Bauges that you will discover with this experienced and enthusiastic pilot !
