Jean-Baptiste Chandelier: the Peter Pan of paragliding

“Imagine if you could be weightless, flying from one place to another, walking on water, running across the city and among the crowds”, says Jean-Baptiste Chandelier with the light in his eyes. We all dreamed of being a bit like Peter Pan: forever young and with the ability to fly from one place to another. In his "Weightless" project, Chandelier takes us around the world flying, just like Peter Pan.

Weightless

Jean-Baptiste Chandelier is a professional paragliding pilot and video maker, in his spare time he plays guitar, the drums and likes to ride a bike. He is considered as one of the pioneers of the "proximity flight", which is a discipline which is strictly connected to paragliding. Thanks to this, Chandelier has no problem moving in tight spaces, as we saw in the video.

He managed to make his dream come true and to live of his passion. He flies like Peter Pan, walks on water, on roofs, on tower cranes and on the sail of his friend, it’s magic to watch it and inexplicably exciting to do it.
