VINCENT DESCOLS
"LE BLOND"

BIOGRAPHY

«Le Blond» is an aeronautical expert and professional jumper, known for his wingsuit BASE precision proximity flying, of which he was one of the first. Ever since, after many world premiere and winning Wingsuit World Championship, he continues the adventure, sharing his passion with enthusiasm.

A lover of open spaces and aerial sports, he is as well highly proficient in Speed Riding, Skiing. Wandering sometimes near oceans, he plays also Kite Surfing and Open water Diving. 

He has become a specialist in projects achievement linked with human flight, as well as coaching, demo and performance flights.

Vincent grew up in a small mountain village in the Pyrenees and has always dreamed of flying, obtaining his airplane pilot's license at the age of 15. 

After his degree in engineering at ENAC (Ecole Nationale Aviation Civile), he started skydive in 2005. Always in the sky, even during his job as an Air Traffic Controller, his passion for the mountains naturally led him to BASE jumping en 2008. 

But in 2009, after being hit by a train, he was hospitalized for one year, and told that not only would he never run again but would most likely have difficulty walking. 

After a determined re-education program, his dreams still intact, he took up once again sports the following year and even hiking to the spots with his crutches! 

In 2011, (and without crutches!) the video called « BASE Jump Fall Session » became a hit, not least because it was the first time such long proximity flights had ever been seen. 

In 2012, he and 3 friends form the Vercors Base Team, opening up some of the longest high mountain jumps in the world, including alpine style access. On the back of the subsequent buzz this created, Vincent has signed partnerships with wingsuit, parachutes, and sportswear brands, and now participates in their development and publicity. 

Since then, he has made a string of accomplishments and continues to explore the fields of competitive flying and stunt flying.
