During the flying days, there is a limit of 4 students per instructor, guaranteeing a high quality of individualized teaching.
Group courses are open to a minimum of 4 students over the same period.

Introductory course

In five days, we offer you an introduction to paragliding by making your first big flights, either solo with radio guidance, or in a two-seater (tandem) with an instructor. Beforehand, two or three days on the ground are spent learning how to handle the wing and familiarizing yourself with the equipment. Theoretical lessons on flight control are provided to go over the important points and answer any questions you may have… and during the last few days, the skies open up for you!

On this course, we’ll take you closer to autonomy in calm air, on a known site.

Pre-requisite: You must already have made long flights using radio guidance.
