Tandem Flights & Discovering Day

Fly with a professional instructor (BEES 1st degree // BPJEPS // DEJEPS), specialist in tandem flights.
The amazement of this flight will also be for you the opportunity to learn the basics of the piloting technique. Indeed, if you want, you will be able to pilot a little, with taking the breaks under the careful advises of your teacher.
Your active participation, with a short run, will be necessary for the taking off and for the landing.

The "Discovering Day" will get you to associate an educational tandem flight in low mountain range with a session of slope school in which you will learn to use a glider on the ground and will feel the first sensations of lift.

Paragliding courses

You made a tandem flight or a discovering day?
You feel the desire to learn to fly by yourself ? A training course is imperative.

You will start with a "beginners" course of 5 days, in which you will learn the theoretical and the practical bases of paragliding.

At the end of the course, you will already live your first solo flights, guided by your instructors.



But a "beginners" course will not however get you to fly directly in autonomy, you will have for it need to make some other training courses (progress, performance, etc.).

Your instructors will guide you during all your learning, until the autonomy.

Speed riding

Speed riding is a new discipline stemming from the meeting of several sports, in particular of (acrobatic) paragliding, of ski version freeride, snow kite and free fall.

Its simplicity of learning returns fast the activity opened to a very wide public.

No need to have some experiment of paragliding, only a good skiing level (all snow / off piste) will be necessary for the practice of Speedriding. Indeed, this activity is practiced on snow only, and consists in flying along a off pist slope, equiped with a pair of skis, a harness, a helmet and a wing of weak surface, easy to pilot.

The objective is not to get height and for a long time, but to play with the relief as a skier would ; the charm thus is to go down slopes quickly by mixing the glide on snow and the gliding flight. speed riding could also become speed kiting when the wind increases, you just play with your wing like with a snow kite, being pulled across and up the hill ... very exciting !!

In 10 years, the practice of speedriding, at first marginal, was outlined, became refined, to reach an optimal level of security and maturity today.
