Discovery paragliding tandem flights
For the little ones to their grandparents: it’s accessible for everyone. Every flight consists out of the activity itself, the equipment, a tandem flight with a State Certified Sports Instructor possessing different licenses and information about solo paragliding.
We adapt the flight to your wishes: quiet and laid-back…or acrobatic if you prefer those sensational feelings.

A dream that becomes reality
Hi there ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls!
You are about to jump on board of the most accessible, the coolest and the most liberating flying engine: paragliding.
Tandem flights are possible for :
-Everyone starting from young (my advice: from 5 years) to all grown up (our oldest passenger: 87 years old).
-No special knowledge or courage are required, it’s quite easy and very accessible, even for the less sporty people or for those who suffer from vertigo, you don’t have to be afraid for that in the air!
The only things necessary are your enthusiasm and confidence.
-We will always make sure to give you a calm and safe take off (we don’t jump, we lift off) and landing.
Your equipment :
Walking or other sport shoes, comfortable pants or jogging pants and a windbreak.Bring globes and an extra sweater with you if the weather is cold.
Before the flight:
A short explanation: we will explain you how and why we fly, what there is to be found in the air (many things are flying on in the air and we know much about it!), why and how we discover everything, a little simulation for you to know how to sit comfortably when in the air and of course verifying if you feel alright!
This will give you satisfaction, knowledge and confidence…
The flights :
It is the weather conditions that can make a flight good or bad and not so much the height of the site. At the moment, only 20m is enough to rest long enough in the air on the good days!
This beautiful activity is dependent of the weather; make an appointment at the beginning of your stay in Millau, this will give you the possibility to fly another day in case of bad weather.
Four sites cover all the wind directions at only 15 min. distance from Millau:
- Brunas : north-east to north-west – 300m height difference (direction Roquefort, take the exit of Creissels to the left)
- Puncho d'Agast : south to west – 500m height difference (direction Montpellier le Vieux, on the site you will see satellite dishes)
- Le Pic d'Andan : south-east (wind from Autan) 100m height difference – (direction Cahors)
- Novis : the only site at +/- 20km from Millau – 250m height difference – direction Paris A75 – A perfect site in case the Autan wind in Millau is (too) strong.
Paragliding is feeling like a bird: spending time in the air, climbing as high as possible and keep flying in the air.
Some will even do acrobatics, just like jackdaws or falcons!
For this you will need thermals. Some days there will be and other days there won’t be, that’s the game!
We will only do acrobatics if you want to do this!
Thousands of people who have tried this already found it brilliant!
In the morning the sun is standing low and the fly conditions are still quiet and calm: let your children enjoy this with the flight ZEN!
