I studied and was employed by the government as a sport teacher before I became involved in tourism.
I also coached the 3rd league division handball team in the Vogean area (east of France) for several years.
Among many other sports I practised sailing and windsurfing and I am also a deep diver. This is to say I am specially attracted by sea and wind.
I met the balloon in 1997, soon passed my pilot licence, then created a non-profit organisation to share my pleasure with others.
I like challenges and this is another reason for my attraction to the balloon, especially to the mountain flights which demand skill, awareness and a good assessment of the winds.
I like adventure and discovering: new countries, meeting new people, flying from different places. For me ballooning is an addiction, not a business and meetings are really the right place to fulfill my expectations: challenge, sharing and discovering.
If I were to keep in mind some of my best flights and meetings, I would name:
  • Mountain flights over the French Alps
  • The very beautiful "Trophée François 1er" over the Chateaux of the Loire valley in France And abroad
  • Paestum and Fragneto Monforte, near Naples, Italy, which I've been attending to for a few years now and last but not least:
  • Pattaya in Thailand
  • And Putrajaya with the wonderful Malaysian hospitality and friendship

 I have been a pilot for 14 years, and have travelled all over the world flying balloons. We have flown the last 2 years at the Putrajaya festival and loved it. We are looking forward to returning.

I´m infected by the ballooning – virus since 1992 and balloonpilot since 12 years.
The history of ballooning is the early history of aviation itself. There is something about a hot air balloon that is intriguing, captivating and awe-inspiring. Perhaps it has to do with man and woman's fascination with flight since the beginning of time
Unfortunately I was never in Malaysia.
I want to know country, culture and people.
I´ve heard a lot of positive about Malaysia. Hospitality, beautiful landscapes and nice food.
I want to experience that live in Malaysia.
I love ballooning and I love travelling. Both can be combined very well. I have been ballooning in many European countries and even on other continents. I was ballooning in Canada, USA, Mexico, Chile, Thailand and in Africa.
With highlights crossing the alps, flying in the Atacama-dessert and the Mass-Ascensions during the balloonfiesta in Albuquerque New-Mexico.
I look forward to Malaysia.

I will be flying in Malaysia for the 4th time, I was lucky to be involved on the first Putrajaya balloon meet and fell in love with the Malaysians from the first time. Thanks of the great organization of Khairudin and Maimoon I was able to return on the next events.
Malaysia is a great country to fly a balloon, last year in Kedah I was even able to make a landing in a paddy field ! A lot of fun with our crew !!

Miriam: I'm coming from The Netherlands, the land of the tulipbulbs and windmills. When I was at the age of 4 years I was already involved with ballooning. Because my father had his pilot license I inherited the same interest on ballooning. At the age of 16 I became one of the crew members and soon after that I got my driving license, so I was part of the retrieve crew. Off course I had to finish school and started a study Economics close to my home. After this study I went to the University of Nijmegen and studied Law. But soon I discovered I wanted to join my father in the office. Only 6 months I worked at a law firm and made a choice to work in the ballooning company. Now I'm responsible for the commercial business. During summer (when the weather in the Netherlands is perfect to fly) you can find me at the office and in the sky as well. Last year I participated the 2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta with the Jeans. I'm looking forward to come to Malaysia in March, because I love the typical Malaysian food (makan makan ;-), the nice temperature and the friendly people! To the organization I would like to say: Good luck next weeks! See you all in March!
Daan: Last year it was our first time in Malaysia and we were there with the special shape, the Bunch of Balloons. This balloon was only for tethering so we didn't fly. This year we will join with the Festo balloons and can finally see how beautiful Malaysia is from the sky. After last year we promised to come back because everything was very well organized and also our team(crew) was superb. During my study (1989) I got infected by ballooning. That was also the moment that I said I would like to fly once by myself. In 1992 I got my licence. Now I fly almost 19 years and have flown in 30 countries all over the world. (some of the countries are Bolivia, Dubai, Hungary, Finland, USA, Canada, Syria, Cyprus, China, India, South-Korea and Portugal)
I also organize a balloon fiesta in Holland and last year we had our 25th celebration with 125 balloons.
I'm looking forward to be part of the 3th Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.

I have been infected with the Balloonvirus around 1993. Since then I have been flying balloons all over the world, and as most "balloon-infected" persons say: "ballooning-time" is allways "fun-time".  I've never been to Malaysia and I'm looking forward flying in Malaysia, at the 3rd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiësta 2011
