Hi there,
 
I started to fly Mac Para gliders in 1997 when I was full motivated about acro. I won the first Red Bull Vertigo with the MAC PARA - Heaven.
I ruturned back to MAC PARA in 2005 with the objective to progress in distance and was able to climb the highest step of the podiums of major XC competitions.
By supporting me and giving me the best gliders MAC PARA helped me to realise my objectives : 2nd overall Worldcup 2006 and European Champion in 2008.
 The Magus I flew always improved in the good direction and became one of the best competition gliders.
The specificities of the Magus is a good performance in climbing and in glide, and it is very stable at high speed... The Proto that I have got for the Worlds in Mexico continues in this way and has even a better glide from 50 to 55km/h.
 This year I'll have a new challenge: Eliane, my girl friend is pregnant and we are waiting a boy for July. Now we live together in Thun (Switzerland), the city is the cradle of Advance. I was looking for a job there and Advance proposed me to cooperate with them for promotion and test of the new gliders. It was the perfect moment and I accepted. I will continue to work as paragliding instructor and new competences and experiences about free flying with this job.
 When I look behind I have a good feeling about what we have done with MAC PARA.
The decision to leave was not easy to take for me. From now there is a new story that begins and I'm excited to discover it.
 I thank very much to MAC PARA for their confidence and I wish a good evolution and success!

Cheers
Greg Blondeau
