Meet Baptiste Welsch - 2021-02-22
Baptiste is LUXFLY’s lead instructor. He is responsible for all the flying related aspects. His passion for sports started from a very young age.
Yes, Baptiste has always wanted to be a sports teacher and that’s exactly what he does today.
He spends most of his time in the wind tunnel or skydiving, and has successfully flown 26 tunnels in his career. You guessed it, his hobbies are skydiving and drone FPV.
Currently, he boasts a total of 3,000 hours working in a wind tunnel and 3000 skydiving jumps. His determination and passion for skydiving won him the 2018-2019 Freefly World Championship in Australia.
Baptiste’s interest in skydiving is fostered daily by his belief: “to fly like you walk”. Herein lies his inspiration to teach and groom an adrenalin-loving generation who would love to learn to fly like they walk.
His everyday life quote is “don’t tell them how good you are, show them!” and Baptiste is no slacker when it comes to proving his expertise and worth.
