Fifth international Meeting of Disabled Pilots, 11th to 18th of August 2013. For the fifth year, the aero club of Gruyère has organized a worldwide meeting of disabled pilots to share experience and to offer special training in mountain flying. Gruyère is the only airfield in Switzerland offering disabled people instruction in glider or power flight.
For this fifth edition, about 25 glider and powered aircraft pilots and paragliders from New Zealand, Sweden, England, Belgium, France and Germany have shared the pleasure of flying in this amazing region.
Brian Jones is the Honorary President of the event. He participated with Bertrand Piccard in the first non-stop balloon flight around the world and is the co-founder of the Winds of Hope Foundation. Breitling is sponsoring this event.
Many thanks to Franziska Neuhaus, firedancing.ch for the beautiful firedance performance.
Special thank to my friend Tahan and his Yak 18A for all the air-to-air flights for movies and photographies during the week.
... and a big "thank you" to my friends Daniel and Sarah and to all our visitors.
Filmed and edited by Yannick Barthe, yannickbarthe.ch with a Sony A99 (principally with the 24-70mm lens). I've also used some GoPro 2 and GoPro 3.
