Bruno had joined SUPAIR as an R&D engineer/designer. His professional guiding principals in tune with great human qualities, injected a breath of fresh air into the company and its team. We had been blessed to have him among us for a fleeting two year lapse, while also sharing goods times in other activities we had in common. We will always keep in our memories those heartfelt, joyful and precious moments spent in his company.
The entire SUPAIR team sends its heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Bruno will be missed.

World Powered Paragliding championship in Spain :
An excellent result for the french pilots and two SUPAIR team pilots grabbing the 1st and 2nd spot !!!
Women : Coralie Mateos takes a 2nd. place behind Emilia Plak ( Poland ).
Men : Alexandre Mateos finishes 2nd. after Pascal Vallée ( France ).
Alexandre MATEOS :
My first world championship was hard on me with my injured ankle, but I was nevertheless, able to participate in the event. Ok. but a bit windy weather conditions; a fair amount of task diversification; I made a few mistakes, but it is part of the learning process and hope not to repeat them in the future.
Coralie MATEOS :
An extraordinary experience ! The weather conditions became strong each morning to calm down in the evening thus making each flying session a short one, allowing us to rest in the interval periods. There were many tasks requiring navigation knowledge and preparation, enough calculations to make to give anyone a headache…I am more into intuitive flying than having to calculate all my routes in advance. Nevertheless, my academic planing was good, but the task did not feel as much fun to me. I clearly enjoyed myself a lot more during the middle of the competition with the max targets/max kilometers course (the calculations were simpler to make with more flight options available), wing handling of course, and fuel economy.
Among the girls, Emilia Plak tookoff quickly and kept the pole position. It was a great amicable battle!
I am very happy with this 2nd. place for my first world championship; an exciting revelation enticing me to get ready for the next season in view of the European Championships two years from now. I believe I needed this interim and constructive step which gave me a solid platform to stand on for the future competitions to come.
All gung-ho about it !!

Clément Latour won the "St-Hil AIR TOUR 2012" !
A big round of applause to Clément Latour, commercial Rep. at SUPAIR-VLD, for his outstanding performance by winning the Saint Hillaire Tour competition. The event gathered nearly 50 teams on a circuit reaching as far as Annecy to the north, and the "Col de Frettes" to the south ( Piolit ).
Particularity of this competition : the circuit allowed the contestants to choose either direction. In 2012, half of the competitors headed out northbound, while the other half preferred the south. The suspense was guaranteed to be there !
