Our team members

Fabien Blanco
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.

Barbara
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.
Lorenza
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?
Jason équipe
Driver & cameraman SIV

Jason

The newest member of the team and also a paragliding pilot, Jason, will drive us safely to the top. SIV trainees will also be able to meet him at the beach on camera!

Malin lobb
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.

Yann
Instructor

Yann

Yann went through all the possible take-offs before coming to the Alps! Passionate and enthusiastic, he will make you fly as long as possible!

Almost ten years of practice and as much passion. All-terrain pilot, from the grassy slopes of the Cantal mountains to the white sand dunes of Morocco via the Piton des Neiges, I come to deploy my gliders on the shores of Lake Annecy. Demanding and enthusiastic, always ready to fly, cross country, aerobatics or simply a sunset flight, all shared for more pleasure.
See you soon under our wings!
Emily
Tandem manager

Emily

Originally from Australia, Emily will share her good mood with future passengers! She will welcome you all season long and will be at your service all day long!

Customer service is at the heart of my work at Flyeo. I love welcoming tourists and locals during the summer months. Our passengers arrive at the shop sometimes with apprehension, sometimes with impatience. Whatever the case, they always come back after their flight with a big smile and full of memories. When the passengers show their pictures of the flight to those who stayed on the ground, I can see how much fun they had in the air. They relive and recount the flight in great detail. It makes you dream every time. That's when I remember why I love this sport so much and why I love sharing it with as many people as possible.
