The perfect experience to discover paragliding, intense and efficient, awaits you! During this flight you will have the chance to fly around the Barre des Ecrins and witness landscapes that only birds can normally enjoy. Once you arrive at the take-off area, a few quick strides will allow you to take off for a flight in complete safety thanks to your certified pilot!
- Meeting and Preparation: We meet at the reserved time (a bar is open at the base if you are early) to show you your flight equipment, and so you get to know your pilot. We'll then be off in our SUV to the take-off area.
- Start and Flight: You will gear up once you arrive and will take off as soon as the runway is free. At the "go" from your pilot, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 fast steps will allow you to smoothly take off with the pilot. In the blink of an eye, you will feel a breathtaking sensation will you and these 15 minutes will always feel too short.
