Refresher course

Like many pilots, you have flown less and less for a thousand reasons, but without ever making the decision to stop paragliding. Your volatile soul wakes up again, but you are hesitating? The simple sight of the other paragliders in flight makes you sigh with nostalgia?

Take the step! We will take care of you peacefully.

We will assist you according to your specific needs: glide inflation, take-offs, thermal, landings, equipment verification, advice and upgrades.

It’s like riding a bike, you can’t forget it!
