Make fast progress with our tailor-made training courses ! This one-day or one-week training course focuses on two objectives:
- Reaching an initial level of autonomy in order to fly alone in calm conditions
- Discovering the sites in the Annecy area

Discover new inflation techniques, take your first updrafts, do soaring flights over certain adapted sites.
Your piloting technique is the focus of every flight, with pitch, roll and 360 exercises, dynamic turns, etc.
In groups of 7 trainees maximum, the technical content of the flights is adapted to your needs, according to your progress.

Training courses from April to November.


Program :

We meet at the school in the morning to check everyone’s license and equipment, equip you if necessary, and off we go to the take-off site! If you haven’t paraglided for a while, we might propose that you spend one or two hours on the training slope.

- Work on the different take-off techniques (facing the sail/back to the sail)
- Managing your landing with autonomy
- Understanding the movements of your sail with exercises in flight (roll/pitch, etc.)
- Flying without the radio (yes!)
- First updrafts !
- Flights in different aerological and geographic conditions
- In-depth theoretical concepts (flight mechanics, piloting, etc.)

In short, the goal is to make you autonomous !
