Thibault VOGLET

Team competition

Since he discovered paragliding, the passion has not left him and he has put everything aside to fly as much as possible! Instructor, tandem flights, competition (XC and Hike&Fly), team building, club manager, competition organizer... Everything goes!

He started competing in 2016 with the Belgian Open. His first steps at a high level came in 2018 by taking part in the national team during the European Championship in Portugal. This was followed by a title of Belgian Champion and several participations in World Cups and World Championships. 2022 was finally a successful year with a4th place in Macedonia at the PWC and a 13th place in the Final in Mexico. He is also a competition pilot in Hike and Fly with participations in all the "Bornes to Fly" since 2018, in the Xalps 2021 as the back-up and in the Xpyr in 2022.

Today member of the X1X Paragliding Team, which is a team representing the high level in Belgium and internationally, in cross country and H&F competition.

In his spare time he is a physical education teacher and high school educator. A sports enthusiast of all kinds, he regularly runs trails (mostly in preparation for H&F competitions).

How long have you been flying?

Since 2011. Competing since 2016 and in the Belgian national team since 2018.

Your harness?

The Kanibal Race 2!

Why Kortel Design?

Kortel Design is an earnest brand, filled with humility and family size. Bonus? A careful attention to its pilots. What more could you ask for?

Your best flight?

A hard-fought win at the 2019 Belgian Championship in Grand Bornand. With a discard already used, no possibility to make mistakes. A lot of pressure, but a well managed round that offers me the title of Belgian Champion.

Any plans?

The X1X Paragliding Academy: A Belgian academy that aims to take young, talented and ambitious pilots to the top level!
