We will fly in the main spots of the French Alps, that I know like the back of my hand. You can expect the regular alpine conditions: from gentle soaring sessions to strong thermals along the slopes.

I mostly organise my paragliding cross country courses in the areas I know the best : the North part of the French Alps as Annecy, Chamonix, Saint Hilaire or more South : Saint Vincent, Saint André les Alpes, Gourdon. These are all well explored flying spots and allow for a classical introduction to Alpine flying. The area is perfect for cross country flying, there are many take off possibilities, lots of place to land and roads pretty much everywhere for the retrieve.
My courses are are open to all level pilot and totally customisable: your cross country trip can be mixed with some miniwing or speedflying tuition. It’s also possible to do some hike and fly. Actually everything is possible! Just let me know if you have any idea and I’ll make it happen. To summarize: You will fly safer, have fun and improve your skills! You will have a totally stress free experience.
Whether you’re a complete cross-country beginner or the most advanced pilot, the task and tuition will match your level and objectives. My coaching will cover all the details you need to know in order to fulfill your desire and become a better pilot.
Travel with Companions or Family
If you decide to come with your family, Annecy is the perfect place! They can spend the day at the beach or enjoy a bicycle ride around the lake. There so many thing to do here. It's definitely the best place to mix paragliding trip with family life.
Your companions are most welcome, I can bring them on tandem flights so that we can fly all together.
Lessons & Coaching
Arnaud was well organised and provided clear briefing on ground and in the air. He's knowledgable of the area and he provided a variety of flights from many take offs around annecy and it gave me a great flavour of the region. I likes his focus on safety, techniques and effeciency. the weather was great in most the days an he provided a plan that gets the most of each day. The retrieve was available timely. I enjoyed many flights with great scenery and they ranged from 25km to 49km around annecy.
