A pioneer unconstrained by certitude and stereotypes, an explorer of the human spirit more than an adventurer, he rejects all dogmas other than the need for all-embracing curiosity. As an enthusiastic balloonist and aviator, Bertrand tackles challenges that others consider impossible. He made the first ever non-stop round-the-world flight in a balloon and launched the «Solar Impulse» project for a solar airplane, in which he flew from Europe to Africa without a single drop of fuel. A doctor and psychiatrist, he derives from his training in hypnosis and his interest in oriental philosophies a different focus, putting human beings and their quality of life in the foreground.
