Flying Style: Cross Country
Lessons or coaching
We profit from good weather all year round, for different kind of paragliding flights. In Spring and Summer the hot sun warms up the air in the south-facing slopes creating thermal rockets, perfect for some epic cross-country flights. In Autumn you can expect some more mild weather to suit all level pilots. The thermals are not so strong as the previous months and we will find easy conditions and a more gentle athmosphere for all. As for Winter we have a mix of sun and snow, ideal for speed riding and paragliding improvement.

Lessons & Coaching
My day was 100 euro. I did not need accommodation. So I was just paying for the guiding. I thought Nicolas and Davide were excellent. Nicolas’ communication before the event was good. And then everything went smoothly. Nicolas shuttled us from his shop/school, to the mountain, and then a short hike to the take off. I was with some other pilots, who were at different levels. The site, Puy Aillaud, was excellent. The conditions on my day were not strong. We did a short flight so everyone could learn about take off and landing. Then did a couple longer flights, where depending on your level, you could fly around the valley etc. I had asked Nicolas for some coaching, and I thought he was good about that. “You might find a house thermal above that ski shop/Be a bit careful near there, but I am happy with what you are doing” Everything very good.
