Leonard Siclon


Léonard got into paragliding in 2014. It became at once a passion and he spent most of his free time flying and learning about paragliding. Mostly into XC flights and occasional bivi adventures, he shares his experiences on Youtube and never tires of chatting about paragliding! He is now working for BGD as our community manager.
