The SUPAIR team

 

Today, Supair is made up of thirty young, passionate employees, a third of whom are dedicated to R&D. They all share the same raison d'être, that of contributing to the joy of flying at paraglider.

These men and women are united by strong human values: teamwork, passion, respect, excellence and creativity. Together they design the harnesses, gliders, parachutes and accessories of tomorrow.

Led by Laurent Chiabaut for the past 11 years, this team is entering a new cycle, with a development based on the combination of safety and pleasure, all within a responsible and demanding environmental and social approach.
