Our team members

CEO, Founder

Fabien Blanco

100% organic! Experience in aerobatics and cross country. Trainer of trainers and instructors. Trainer of the flying courses for the French team. Practices mountaineering, climbing, Hike&fly. Passionate pilot.

I am still a fan even after 30 years of playing in the mountains!
Paragliding gives me a feeling of freedom, it gives me the feeling of being untouchable and a strong inner experience, as well as mental stability; "my therapy in the open air".

I like sharing and conviviality, I learn from everyone, I transmit without unsaid, without censorship.

I am open-minded and adapt to the individual. I share their joys and fears.

The mountain makes me happy and alive, I imagine that for many it is the same thing. As we go through life we look for ourselves and build experiences, which influence our choices and our behaviour. Nothing is set in stone, I insist on remaining in a quest for personal progression in order to keep the idea that I can do even better and feel even better in this element.

Instructor

Barbie

On skis in winter or under a wing in summer. Calm and reassuring, Barbara aka Barbie, shares her passion with enthusiasm. Offer her a Bowl of Chacha on occasion, she will gladly share her experiences!

Passionate about the mountains, I started with climbing and skiing. A nice birthday present brought me to paragliding 10 years ago. I realised a childhood dream: to fly.
Paragliding soon took up a lot of my time in the mountains. I started by doing a lot of aerobatics and then I joined the women's national team in distance in 2016.
Today I enjoy hike&fly, cross country or aerobatics but also sharing this passion by teaching or tandem flying.
Partner, instructor

Malin Lobb

Malin moved to the Annecy region with his family for the love of flying. Founder of the British Racing Academy, he loves above all cross country and xc competitions.

A love for teaching and playing in the mountains was enough to move my family and myself to the
Annecy region, the perfect place to indulge in both practices. Teaching advanced paragliding in the
form of SIV is the most rewarding job I have ever had. Delving in to the mind of the students,
analysing their fears and how they behave under stress, sharing technical knowledge that could one
day save their lives, seeing a confidence emerge that will unlock the endless possibilities that this
sport has to offer keeps me motivated to become the best instructor I can be. Being able to share
my passion, watch my students grow and evolve over the course is immensely rewarding.

The main focus of my personal flying revolves around competitions, flying two liners as fast and
efficiently as possible against the best pilots in the world offers me a lifetime of learning, keeps me
humble and shows me what is possible on any given day. Through competitions I have been lucky
enough to make the British Team several times, representing queen and country has been a great
honour. I created the British Paragliding Racing Academy to formalize training for the current and
future British team. In a short space of time some amazing people and myself doubled the amount
of PWC pilots in the UK and gained a European champion within two years.

I regularly write for Cross Country Magazine, the biggest paragliding magazine in the world. Having
never excelled at writing, it challenges me to spread my knowledge in a form I am not used to.

Through the advancement of sports psychology and paragliding equipment, our sport and it turn the
way we teach is constantly evolving. The desire to stay at the forefront of this ever changing sport is
not only my personal goal but one that is shared by all of the staff at Flyeo.

Instructor

Régis

In his last year of training to pass the paragliding monitorat, Régis is very attentive to his students. Allergic to computers and screens, you will find him in his element under a wing or in nature.

Administration

Melissa

Able to answer all your questions, Melissa manages your reservations to perfection! A cross country enthusiast, you can also meet her in the air. Loves outdoor sports and... her dog!

Marketing, Communication

Lorenza

Polyvalent, often behind the computer, she can sometimes be behind the camera, driving the shuttle or playing on the slackline. Newbie of acrobatics or cross country, she is as motivated as ever!

On holiday in the Puy de Dôme, I discovered paragliding by chance.
After a first flight, I continued on this path and learned to fly on my own in an initiation course. Fascinated by this sport where one never stops evolving, I progress at my own pace in aerobatics and cross country... who knows, maybe one day I will be a paragliding instructor?
