ANNECY PARAGLIDING : HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR FIRST PARAGLIDING FLIGHT ABOVE LAKE ANNECY ?
ALL OF THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR PARAGLIDING FLIGHT :
– What kind of outfit should I wear for my paragliding flight ?
The same kind as for a walk in the mountains : sneakers, long pants, a jacket and sunglasses.
– Could my glasses fall down ?
Normally not, but in case of doubt you can attach them with a cord.
– Can I take a go-pro or camera ?
Yes, if it’s attached with a cord to make sure you don’t lose it. The pilot will also take pictures and videos.
– Where do we take off ?
The paragliding take-off is at col de la Forclaz in the town of Talloires-Montmin.
– Where is the landing area ?
You’ll land in Doussard, only 100 meters from our shop.
– Can you be afraid of heights when paragliding ?
No, the feeling you get when you’re afraid of heights is different. In order to get it, your feet must be touching solid ground. So this kind of fear doesn’t exist in the air, even though it’s possible to be a little scared at the take-off…
– Where is the meeting point ?
We’ll meet at our shop, 15 minutes before the flight.
– Is it possible for the accompanying persons to see the landing?
Yes, we’ll show you the colour of the gliders so you can recognize your friends and family.
– Can they see the take-off ?
We recommend you stay at the landing to watch, the take off happens very fast and it’s better to get their first impressions after the flight.
– What happens in case of bad weather ?
In case of doubt, you can call us the day before your flight. Depending on the conditions, we’ll take stock again in the morning. If the weather is too bad, your flight will be rescheduled.
– From what age can you fly with a paraglider ?
Most of the time, from 5 years old. But it’s the desire to fly that counts most ! The child needs to want it.
– Until what age can you fly ?
There’s no limit ! The only thing that matters is to want it and be motivated !! Tandem flights are for everyone, children and adults without any age limit.
And don’t worry, there’s nothing simpler then the take off : only a few steps and you’ll be flying over Lake Annecy and its panoramic view on the surrounding mountains. Simply magical!
