Paragliding in France

Learning Paragliding skills in the UK can be a slow business due to difficult weather conditions and busy sites. In the sunny south of France good flying conditions are the norm and you can progress rapidly in a warm safe environment. We are based in Provence which is ideally suited for thermalling and XC flying - our local flying site had hosted world Championship level competitions.

The first stage of your training is completed on a lovely sloping alpine meadow which enables you to work progressively higher up the slope as your ability and confidence grow. Your first flights will be only about 1m or so above the ground but by the end of the trip you can expect to be completing flights up to 2-800m. The training package is completed utilizing real-time radio instruction/control techniques and video debriefing is used as required.

Provence is probably the best area in Europe for thermal flying. The French National centre's for both paragliding and Gliding are in our immediate area - Why? Fantastic flying conditions is the simple reason. We fly thermals daily with cloudbases typically 3000m to 4500m, an ideal place to learn to thermal and fly XC.
