Yannick was great - I didn't have to worry about anything.
Yanik the instructor made the paragliding experience, he was fun and energetic and we had a laugh making the experience more enjoyable.
The instructor was nice. As I am a snowboarder, we first tried to do it with the snowboard. Unfortunately, it was more difficult than I imagined and the first attempt failed. We tried a second time without the snowboard (running) and everything went good. I communicated in French but the instructor also could speak Englisch if necessary. The instructor did some tricks in the air and also let me pilot for a while. It did feel shorter than 10 minutes in the air but maybe that's just a feeling. I didn't check my watch.
L’instructeur est un passionné, il saura vous aiguiller et répondre à toutes vos questions. Très bon contact à garder!
Excellent super gentil mets a l'aise dispo pour planifier un RDV
Nous avons effectué notre vol avec Yannick, professionnel exceptionnel! Le feeling est passé tout de suite, comment pourrait-il en être autrement avec tant de bonne humeur?!
Très amical et professionnel, une attitude qui met en confiance.
Yannick est un pilote hors pair. Très pro et très sympa.
Yannick et son collègue ont été très sympathique avec nous, nous ont bien expliqué le déroulé du vol...
