About Corinne …Your Tandem Pilot & Instructor

Corrine with paragliding friend in Mexico

Born under the Aries star in 1974 in Geneva, I grew up watching Hangliders and Paragliders in the sky of Romandie.

Tri-national from Les Vosges (France) and canton “Vaud” (Switzerland). Canadian since 08.

I studied commercial skills in Geneva until 1995 and lived in Scotland for a year. I started flying in 1993 with  an “Alpha” from Advance, kindly received for my 20th B’day! We created the “sors-si-air” club in 1998 with pilots and friends from Cruseilles. The club became busier and bigger through the years. Lots of new pilots in the growing Saleve area. Top landing mecca.

I learned to fly with friends Valery Montant, Cyril Constantin, Laurent Nicollin, Pascal and Katy Piazzalunga in Annecy, Haute-Savoie. Mostly flew in the french Alps and the Saleve Mountain above Geneva for my first 10 years of flying.

We re-Opened “Le Cafe des Crets” in the Saleve in 1999 with Franceline Montant where we lived and worked in les Crets launch for 4 years in the Alpine at the Farm. Good experience…lots of fun and hard work! I then visited Canada again in 2000 where I met Jim for the second time going flying and kayaking. That is why I decided to move here quickly after getting married in october 02. I have been teaching skiing and telemarking in the winter either in Switzerland (Crans-Montanta,Verbier) or Canada (Whistler-Blackcomb).

I have collected over a 1000 flights and still enjoy the beautitul winter short flights in Pemberton on skis!

I have been in Mount Currie, BC for the last 8 years, teaching paragliding and practising tandems. Other passions are horse riding & farming, swimming & scuba-diving, hiking &  trail discovering!
