Description of the discovery flight
You will be welcomed and accompanied by our high-flying team, composed exclusively of professional instructors with a state diploma. You will have only one thought in mind: to put the sails on to experience the unique sensations of paragliding!
Lake Annecy offers itself to you in all its splendour, as you have never seen it before, we guarantee you an absolute rediscovery!
This package is ideal for a first flight, in a calm environment, to discover the sensation of flying in complete safety. The flight takes place in the morning, before noon when the weather conditions are mildest. There will be no turbulence.
There are no prerequisites, except that you must be able to trot during the take-off to get started. Once in the air, you can take the controls if you wish.
Course of the discovery flight
We ask you to arrive about 15 minutes before the flight. You will be picked up at the take-off site.
Your instructor will help you to get equipped and will reassure you by explaining the details of the take-off. Once the glider is unfolded and inflated, you will start to trot until the glider carries you.
In this discovery flight, you will fly along the mountain and the Col de la Forclaz before heading, with one of our state-qualified instructors, to one of the most prestigious sites in Europe and be in ecstasy in front of the majestic Lake Annecy. You will then be able to take the controls and fly yourself if you wish.
Just before landing, you will have to stand up before taking a few steps as you touch down, without any difficulty.
After the landing, and once the glider is folded, we will take you back to the departure point by shuttle.
