Fabrice, your pilot

Since 2016, Fabrice shares its Life between Paris and Périgord where he settled with his wife Stéphanie to open a Bed & Breakfast, Les Hauts de Saint Vincent, located 5 minutes away from the village of Beynac.

With a piloting license, obtained in 2016 after a solid training , Fabrice flies with his balloon on week-ends whenever the weather is good, and today, he chose to share his passion with his guests and passing travelers.

Vol en Ballon has declared its activity to DSAC (Direction de la Sécurité Aérienne Civile), in conformity with the legislation. Flying with less than 4 passengers, Vol en ballon doesn’t need a CTA (Certificat de Transporteur Aérien) ; however, Vol en ballon applies itself the same requirements.
