How will the flight happen ?

You will be told to come a couple minutes before we leave to our chalet at col de la Forclaz ( about 30 minutes drive from Annecy)(town of Montmin 74210) above Lake Annecy. We’ll drive you to the take off thanks to our shuttle. After walking two minutes, you’ll reach the green carpet that’s on the take off. Check our photo and video gallery to see how it is.
It is important to notice that contrary to parachute, we are not jumping of anything; a paraglider works more like a plane that we’ll take off with you on a gentle slope. You won’t have that feeling of standing on a cliff and have to jump of a step down.
A briefing will be done by the pilot to tell you what you’ll have to do. That can change depending on the wind conditions. No worries, there is nothing difficult.

After having you connected to the paraglider, in a very comfortable harness, in front on him, the instructor will ask you to walk forward, you will feel a resistance in your back, it is the wing that starts to inflate. A couple of seconds later, you feel yourself becoming lighter. He will then ask you to run on a couple more meters sot ha we have a bit more speed and you’ll be gently lifted off the ground. You’ll never have the feeling of jumping or falling down. The take off is a great feeling of lightness. Then just have to enjoy the rest of the flight !
For the sensation plus+ flight, the pilot will fly in the best spots to find thermal lifts, and then spiral to stay in the lift and gain altitude.
After about 20 minutes he will take direction of the lake to enjoy the altitude reserve to start the aerobatic manœuvres, gradually of course.
He will then propose you to take the control handles so that you can pilot the paraglider on your own.

A few second before touching the ground, he will ask you to stand up again in the harness, do a couple steps as we touch the ground. As if you were walking down stairs, recovering your weight back on your legs. An easy and funny feeling.
Count on about 1h30 until we have it all finished and you leave from the chalet.

To note : people suffering from motion sickness can feel it during a thermal flight because it moves a bit.. If you know you can be sick, we advise you to choose a discovery flight where the air conditions will be quiet so that you won't be nauseous.

After landing, we provide you the lift back up to the meeting point (Col de la Forclaz)


Your flights are fully refunded, or postponed (your choice), if the weather does not allow us to fly or if you cancel at least 48 hours before the flight.
