When he was a young boy, Théo de Blic flew tandem with his father. By age 12, he endeavored his first solo flight. As he says, “I had been waiting for it for many years, and I got the real feeling of freedom. After that, I never stopped.” This film from Shams of Satori Factory takes us in flight with Blic, who jumps from picturesque peaks in the French Alps and makes an aerobatic descent. You can follow Shams on Facebook here and Satori Factory here.
