Twice French Champion 2008 and 2009 and Vice champion 2010 : Nicolas Schwartz, co-creator and pilot of BALLOONING company in Barcelona, confirms his accuracy and strategy in hot air balloon competitions by receiving 3 major titles during the last 3 years. Nicolas appears to be the best French pilot acording to FFA national ranking !
Within the " carré d´As " of the best pilots in the world 2010 : Nicolas Schwartz terminated in 4th position this year, last October, during the World Championship that took place in Hungary. More than 120 pilots from diffrent countries competed during 10 days over Debrecen city and offered a beautiful air show.
