More about Rene
"I spent the better part of 2021 moving into my new home in Lucerne, Switzerland. New job, new place to live, and most importantly, new flying sites! During the week, I work as an aeronautical systems engineer and am responsible for optimising and certifying turbine installations for cutting-edge trainer airplanes.
On the weekends, I am chasing turnpoints in the world-famous Swiss Paragliding League. I had a good run in 2021 despite the "distractions" and re-qualified for 2022 with a strong finish at the SLC Final in Verbier. I am looking forward to another great flying season with some phenomenal pilots amid the local Alpine eye-candy.
Here's to spreading the BGD colours on every take-off, valley crossing, and landing site that I find myself in. Fly far, fly fun, and fly BGD!"
