Is there a minimum or maximum age to fly with a paraglider ?
It’s a common question !
And the answer is pretty simple.
For the youngest ones, as soon as they are requesting it ! Generally when they’re about 4 or 5 years old. We only fly with children in the morning when the air is calm and smooth. Our instructors will take care of your children in the shuttle going up to the take-off and explain to them how his little bird flight is going to take place : just a few steps to take off and the landing will be very smooth. If they’re willing, they’re certainly ready to discover this unique and peaceful feeling of flying surrounded by the awaking mountains.
The same goes for their grandparents, they only have to be willing as well ! As for their physical condition, they only need to take 3 or 4 steps to take off when there’s a little wind. That’s why they are more likely to fly in the afternoon, when the thermals are present at the take-off. Besides, this will allow them to fly even longer and enjoy their tandem flight above Lake Annecy even more! In case of difficulties in running or any other doubts, feel free to contact us. Solutions exist to help you at the take-off and landing.
In any case, your children and their grandparents will be able to enjoy a paragliding flight in the middle of Haute Savoie’s mountains and admire the beautiful view above Lake Annecy.
