This paragliding/paramotoring course in France is for
complete beginners and
also those who have already done some paragliding and wish to progress
beyond BHPA Elementary Pilot and towards Club Pilot qualifications.
It is also suitable for qualified pilots looking for some relaxing flying,
and to hone their skills.The location
is the incredible Dune de Pyla, set in the stunning Archachon Basin.
Here the Dune rises to nearly 300'
above the sea, and has been formed by the reliable onshore sea breeze.
This provides an excellent
learning environment, for all standards of pilot, The ocean providing
laminar smooth air, and the Dune,
a soft forgiving hill to soak up any mistakes! From beginner to Acro
pilot there is lots of fun to be had
on the Dune! For Paramotorists a great forgiving location to do all
your un-powered flights with a nice
soft beach to land on.
