Description:Adventure pilot flyin' around the world since 1987, I was probably the one that opened most paragliding sites in Morocco. South America is an incredible playground (XC in Colombia, hypoxic flights in Peru, wildness of Bolivia, Chile, or Argentina), Balkans also has my heart (Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania...) Journalist for paragliding mags, author of "parapente sauvage" a topo guide of 50 beautiful mountain flights I am formerly engineer and I have worked in the dev team as test pilot for the French brand Nervures in the years 2003-2011. Nowadays, president of APPI education committee, I share my flying time between instructing instructors and guiding XC tours.

APPI is a Swiss non-profit independant organization that receives no financial support from governments or companies.
APPI provides a paragliding license based on a high quality of paragliding, and an education system that is recognised internationally among all APPI schools worldwide, and partner Associations and Federations.
APPI certifications awarded to a pilot is internal to the APPI system, and shows no particular right in the country where the activity is done, unless APPI is recognized by the legal authority managing free flight in that country. Your paragliding activity must comply with the laws of the country in which it is performed. Check with the local federation if such an agreement exists. In some countries, APPI is the official education system.
