A glider pilot and instructor and a volunteer science facilitator, he shares his passion for science, the sky and space with as many people as possible.
He has now performed nearly 3,000 parabolas, equivalent to more than 15 hours of weightlessness.
“What I like most about the flights is when the passengers all suddenly break out in smiles the moment they discover weightlessness. It’s like experiencing it for the first time all over again. And helping to create these extraordinary memories is amazingly uplifting.”
Like the rest of the Novespace team, Sébastien has long been a champion of making parabolic flights available to the general public. Since these plans were first put into practice in 2013, the flights have been as popular as ever. Sébastien divides his time between flights for CNES scientific campaigns for French research teams and discovery flights.
“It’s always a real pleasure to offer these ‘pretty original visits’ to our extraordinary laboratory. And it’s an honor to work within a team of people as varied, friendly and professional as this one.”
