Franck became a glider pilot at the age of 17 and then joined the School of the Air. His training as a fighter pilot allowed him to become a civilian commercial airline pilot at 25, before being hired as a pilot in aerial works by Klaus Ohlmann, specialist in extreme glider flights holding 8 world records.
At the same time he flew hot air balloons with Dominique for leisure. But, with the ATPL (the highest qualification in civil aviation), Franck combined his experience with that of Dominique to create the company Touraine Montgolfière ®.
Franck is qualified in all types of balloons, he totalizes 3500 flying hours and celebrates his 25 years as a flight captain.
