Tandem Flights

What is a tandem flight ?

We will meet up right next to the landing field. Then we will drive together to the takeoff in our 4x4. On launch, your pilot will prepare the tandem paraglider and fit you with a harness. After a short briefing you will be ready to fly. A few steps forward followed by a short run and you are in the sky. You will then enjoy a unique panorama and the feeling of flying. If the conditions allow it, you may to pilot the paraglider. Coming into land you will need to take a few steps.

All the instructors are FFVL certified.

Saint Pierre 130m 35€

«The little flight»

Flight time about 2 minutes.
Time required (drive to take-off, briefing, fitting of equipment, flight and debriefing) approximately 30 minutes.
This flight usually takes place in the morning from 9 am.

Pros

  • A small flight which is less impressive than a flight starting from a higher launch.
  • Accompanying persons can easily come to take-off to follow the flight from launch to landing. Access by a motorable road. Perfect view of the landing zone.
  • The time required is short (30 minutes) and the short flight can cater to a large group of participants over a morning. For example 3 pilots can fly 20 participants in a morning.
  • This site is well protected from the weather because it is not very high and the possibilities of making this flight are quite significant.

Cons

  • Fairly short flight time that makes you want to fly again.

Jeux d'Ailes Tips

This flight is perfect for children and lightweights or for the less adventurous.

Butte de l'aigle 560m 70€

«The classic»

A flight time of about 10 minutes.
Time of the service (climb to take-off, briefing, installation of equipment, flight and debriefing) approximately 1 hour.
This flight is carried out all morning. We try to fly the lightest passengers in the early morning.

Benefits

A flight time that allows you to walk in the air and quietly enjoy the landscape.
The conditions encountered in the morning very often allow the paraglider to be piloted by the passenger.
The takeoff is located at 1000m altitude and is still well protected from the meteorological wind, the possibilities of making this flight are good.
The flight is preceded by a climb in a 4x4 on a steep and very steep path which greatly contributes to the adventure of the flight. Guaranteed sensations.

Disadvantages

A slightly more impressive take-off than the flight from Saint Pierre... but it's so beautiful.
Located higher than the Saint Pierre takeoff, it is more sensitive to aerological conditions.
A 4x4 climb which does not allow accompanying persons to come to take-off (this is sometimes possible if we still have places in the vehicle and if the organization allows it).
Also makes you want to start over or worse to want to do an initiation course to fly alone.

Jeux d'Ailes advice

A nice flight with a magnificent view at takeoff.
It offers the best chance of achievement and flight time ratio.
The climb in 4x4 greatly contributes to the adventure.

Clos du ciel 750m 100€

«les 3 becs»

Flight time: 15-20 minutes.
Time of the service (climb to take-off, briefing, installation of equipment, flight and debriefing) approximately 2 hours.
This flight is carried out in the evening (from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. depending on the season) and exceptionally at the end of the morning.

Benefits

Access to take-off by road (Vallée de la Roanne then by the villages of Rimon and Savel) and a small stretch of very passable road. Companions can follow us easily to enjoy the magnificent view. Sometimes we have a few places available in our minibus. If conditions permit, the passenger can take control of the paraglider.

Disadvantages

The takeoff is the highest, it is the most exposed to the weather wind and does not always allow to be carried out if the wind is too strong or in the wrong direction (South). To increase the chances of success of this flight try to make yourself available during the week.
We only rotate for this flight with 1 to 4 passengers depending on the monitors available.
Possible addiction and big smile in flight.

Jeux d'Ailes advice

Magnificent flight which often allows to see vultures. The view is grand.
The flight time is often well over 15 minutes but it will obviously depend on the air conditions. Without guarantee.
As stated in the cons, the best things often take a bit of patience to come true. Good availability on your part (during the week) makes it easier to find good conditions for this flight.

Long flight 40 minutes 130€

«The Longest Flight»

Time of the service (climb to take-off, briefing, installation of equipment, flight and debriefing) approximately 2 and a half hours.
This flight is performed in the evening from takeoff from “Clos du Ciel” and exceptionally at the end of the morning from takeoff from “Butte de l'Aigle”.

Benefits

The time spent in the air is substantial. We can walk for a long time in the sky and sometimes come across vultures or see critters frolicking below (wild boars, deer, chamois).

Disadvantages

As with the “Clos du Ciel” flight, this flight requires very good conditions to be carried out.

Jeux d'Ailes advice

Being available will be key for this flight. As stated in the cons, the best things often take a bit of patience to come true. Good availability on your part (during the week) makes it easier to find good conditions for this flight.
