First jump on Thursday 13/06/2024 with the best Alain! Very good experience! The landscape is magnificent ! Flying over Lake Annecy was really incredible! Alain was very friendly and explained a lot about the elements observed, so the trip was both instructive and fun! The team was very pleasant. The view from the top of the Col de Forclaz is magnificent! Thanks again

I did a 5-day introductory course with 4 flights despite complicated weather conditions. The support was very good, and the instructors were very involved in the practical and theoretical teaching. A big thank you to the whole Grands Espaces team, you're top notch!

This introductory course was a springboard for my motivation to take up this sport, thanks to my 2 instructors, who were patient and paid a lot of attention to each member of the group. The welcome was warm and pleasant, with a very good general atmosphere.we also learned a lot: a technical but affordable and essential theory on a range of subjects (mechanics, legislation, equipment, meteorology...) which opened our minds a little more to the world of paragliding. This theory is fun, with the group actively participating, and is well rephrased when we don't understand a point, which really helps us to understand and assimilate everything at the end of the day or the week. Despite the weather, the commitment of Cédric and Ahcène enabled us to balance practice and inflation on the school slope, and lessons in the warmth of the classroom.As for the premises and equipment, I have nothing to complain about, everything is perfect, clean and efficient, with even a coffee machine! Finally, you can't talk about Grands Espaces without mentioning the setting: magnificent scenery around Lake Annecy, close to the Planfait and La Forclaz take-off points, the perfect place to learn paragliding.I had an unforgettable week, thanks to Cédric and Ahcène (top instructors) and I look forward to coming back! 😉

Flying a paraglider in the idyllic setting of Lake Annecy, what a dream! I've just finished my introductory course, and all I can think about is going back! A fun team and very reassuring care, I felt at ease straight away. A big thank you!

A superb experience: top-notch instructors, breathtaking surroundings, and a top location for learning and making great progress without wasting too much time getting back up from landing to take-off. More specifically, a big thank you to Hacene who managed to put me at ease given my passive nature and for his technical advice, and also to Robin who didn't hesitate to take out the two-seater paraglider to correct my piloting errors, the icing on the cake ;-) Can't wait for the next course!

This cross-country course at Grands Espaces made me want to fly again, because I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the opportunity to make my own flight. I discovered group flying and the region in complete safety. Thank you to the whole team.
