Activity description

Have you always dreamed of flying away and rushing through the air along with the wind? Learn the basics of paragliding on the magnificent Annecy Lake and get a taste of freedom.

The initiation course can be completed in 3 to 5 days depending on your availability and your expectations at the end of the course. Your group is limited to a maximum of 7 people so that everyone gets to fly regularly during the lessons in perfect wind conditions and enjoy an individualized training.

Once you have your glider, harness, helmet, radio and FFVL license (French federation of free flight) in the pocket, you will leave the first 2 days for small flights of a few meters on a beautiful training slope. The purpose is to learn to take off and land.
you will learn the manoeuvers to get ready for your first solo flight on the last day!

With the 5 day course you will have a chance to really experience solo flights for 2 days after your initial training.
