Born in Annecy, France, Fred Fugen’s eyes were opened to the aerial world at a very early age, thanks to his parents’ interest in parachuting. He completed his first solo jump in 1996 at the age of 16 and his feet have barely touched solid ground since.

Always an early adopter, Fugen began to compete in freeflying. In 2004, he earned his place on the French national freefly team and won the first of many World Championships in Brazil later that year. He would remain undefeated at World Championship level between 2004 and 2009.
