Philippe Clerjon was born in the same year when newly named and then unknown band Beatles arrived to Germany, to Hamburg, to Indra club to start their star career.It was also the year when SPUTNIK 5 was launched and Mauritania becomes independent of France.
Philippe’s professional and private life is very much linked with paragliding and Annecy in France. He worked as a paragliding professional last 20 years and SKY team was very happy to welcome Philippe onboard.
When Philippe is not chatting with SKY team members, coordinating all the international marketing business matters for SKY, he definitely might be out hiking with his wife, his dog Leica or just flying in his beloved area of Annecy.
He was born in the year when the ten-second barrier for the hundred meters was broken in his homeland – Switzerland. In this year the spy plane, U2, was shot down, and Gagarin had less than a year left before his flight into space.
He began flying paragliders in 1989 however his aviation experience started with parachuting and flying light aircraft. After finishing his military service, he devoted himself fully to paragliding.
In 1989 he started to design and construct gliders. He produced a whole series of successful models.
