The philosophy of Airmax




Why coming to fly on Lake Annecy ?

Annecy is one of the most famous spot to fly in the world. We call it the mecca. Any pilot in the world knows about this magic little corner of Haute Savoie ( Rhône-Alpes). Although when you talk to a pilot on the take of, most of the time, you’ll have to speak english.

The weather conditions are extremely well adapted for paragliding. The way the valleys around are organised and placed and the location in France is protecting from the main strong winds that you can find in other parts of France like south of the alps, the pyrénées. These winds you may know like « le mistral, la Bise ». The reliefs are smooth, contrary to Chamonix for example where every ridge is sharp. The valleys are wide so that the valley breeze of the afternoon is not too strong, the thermals are gentle, what make comfortable condition for a first time- passenger. Stop hesitating and dare it.

The view from the air is breathtaking. Come and see by yourself.
