Benoit Syben, over 10 years skydive experience. He has always had a strong passion for active sports. Next to being an experienced participant in several martial arts, he also has broad teaching experience ranging from physical education to being a professional skiing instructor.

During a 2004 working trip in New Zealand he got a first taste of the sport of skydiving and it didn’t take long before it developed into a new passion. While on trip in 2008, Benoit was introduced to the art of wingsuit flying and the dream of human flight finally became real.

On his home dropzone of Zwartberg (aka Black Mountain) Belgium he met Jarno and they started flying together more and more. In the fall of 2011 Benoit got his Wingsuit Coach rating, and joined the ranks of FlyLikeBrick as a coach, load organiser and artistic flight performer. Together with his teammate, he is now ranked as one of the worlds top level performers in wingsuit flying and can be found traveling around the world teaching Wingsuit Flying at skydiving events everywhere.
