Andre Vuilleumier was born in Switzerland in 1967 to a Swiss Gliding Champion and can trace most of his beloved childhood memories to aviation activities. While he spent his youth building and flying model aeroplanes, it was in the mid 1990’s that he piloted his first microlight and spent many enjoyable years flying around Southern Africa. Andre’s dream was to build his own aeroplane and in 2014 he built a four-seater aircraft as a “family project”. Andre has successfully managed a number of businesses and has now found a unique opportunity to combine his entrepreneurial skills with his passion for aviation and looks forward to introducing the Viper aircraft to the Australian skies.
Michel Vuilleumier is a 23 year old, third-generation aviation enthusiast and qualified for his microlight license at the age of 16. Michel has completed his Commercial Pilots license and is working towards his ATPL with the dream of flying commercial jetliners. Michel enjoys attending air shows and has experience with numerous RA Aus aircrafts and his passion for aviation is infectious.
