CREG Coaching during pre-PWC Turkey 2019

A successful experience! During the week of August 25 to 31, 5 pilots from the CREG (Centre Régional d’Entrainement du Grand-Est) took part in the pre-PWC organized in Aksaray, Turkey: Maxime Kuster, Fabien Doffin, Julien Fontbonne, Valentin Gilet and Frédéric Clauss. Aquilae – Performance Paragliding Academy provided them with 2 coaches.

On-the-spot coaching

On site, Erwan Didriche supervised and motivated the troops on a daily basis. The icing on the cake was a third-place finish and a guaranteed qualification for the 2020 World Cup events. Erwan is no newcomer: he’s been flying for 30 years, has been a top-level sportsman and a member of the French team. He now runs the Airone Parapente school.

Remote coaching

Remotely, I created the useful content for the preparation of this event and ensured the evaluation of the pilots’ skills. On a day-to-day basis, I was responsible for analyzing performance and setting objectives.

Aquilae – Performance Paragliding Academy is delighted to have been able to develop this collaboration with CREG and Airone. The Academy has provided method, content and tools to support pilots and coaches. Aksaray is a perfect destination for late summer and autumn flying. The pilots came back with the experience of 5 great rounds in magnificent landscapes, new skills and plenty of ideas to plan their further progress!

I'm interested, I'd like to know more
