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!

I've been paragliding for 2 years now, and each time I've had the same pleasure. I started out in wide open spaces and have progressed with them. I'd like to thank and recommend Alain and the whole team at this school for the quality of their teaching and their advice.

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.

Thank you a thousand times for this supervision, the smile and the benevolence of the whole team. I will come back in a year, with the will to stay longer in the air. 🤘🤘🥰I have not said my last word.

Dynamic team, endemic, friendly, responsible, adaptable and so on...Being a pilot for 22 years, since I met them I could see their professionalism and human qualities: I recommend them for all types of training courses (learning, improvement, SIV, Cross...) and I send them all my friends who want to do tandem flights! Bravos les Gars (et les filles!) 👏

I have just completed a "progression" course with Hassen and Olivier who are two great and very cool teachers. I thank them again for their pedagogy as well as their human side and their simplicity. I highly recommend this school, and I recommend this great pair for your progression. I will go back very soon 😉

I did an introductory course from 18 October to 22 October in the structure, the instructors (Arnaud and Yves) were great, they both have a real passion for paragliding, a taste to teach us their passion and to transmit it to us, it's impressive!The weather conditions were complicated, but our two instructors were able to offer us a quality week, both in terms of training and in human terms.the other members of the structure are all very nice, the welcome is excellent and they are not stingy with advice.in short, an excellent structure, instructors involved and a setting ... exceptional.I recommend with my eyes closed.
