Paragliding France
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Paragliding

Why not take to the air with a paragliding class? Just like the bearded lammergeyer (altore is its Corsican name), those with high-flying aspirations can now view the entire world from above (well, let's start with the Corsican landscapes!). For an introduction to the sport, the school offers two-person introductory flights where, accompanied by an instructor, you can take your first flight and experience all the sensations that go with it. Once you have had time to digest the experience, you will no doubt be back for more! The school also organises beginners' courses so that participants can perfect all aspects of their flying and gain some independence.

These courses are an opportunity to really become familiar with the sport (the equipment used and its characteristics, basic movements, learning and respecting trajectories, all reinforced by short training flights on the training slope) and the theory behind it (flight mechanics, aerology and meteorology, safety and piloting, regulation, etc.).

For those who have already reached such a level and who are looking to improve their technique or learn new ones, the school also offers improvers' courses.

Even if you don't need a pilot's licence to practice paragliding in France, training at a club is fundamental.
