Our first flight in paragliding

Come and discover paragliding with a two-seater flight

All year round, we offer tandem flights in the Puy-de Dôme. Choose the one that suits you from our first flight offer and become a wind passenger for the duration of a flight. Some paragliding experiences, such as discovery flight, are calm experiences. They allow you to contemplate the view and enjoy the panorama at your own pace. Other flights are more oriented towards acrobatics and adrenaline. You will discover paragliding from a different angle. Hang on!

MAKE YOUR CHOICE!

How to choose your first paragliding experience?

Action Parapente offers you an unforgettable flight experience during a first flight. Your state-certified instructor, specialized in paragliding, will share with you his pleasure of flying a two-seater paraglider. For your safety, the instructors are very attentive to the choice of equipment and weather conditions.

We fly all year round. Even if each season has its own charm, the best time to do your first flight is between April and October.

Several ways will allow you to make a flight or “jump” in paragliding:

– Either you do a paragliding course to learn to fly, starting with inflation on gentle slopes to train for takeoff and landing. Your driving experience in the open air will last one week.

– Either you make a first flight in a two-seater with Action Parapente, to live an unforgettable moment, above the Puy-de-Dôme:

 

Acrobatic flight

LONG DURATION flight

Not to be confused with hang-gliding, parachuting or paramotoring!

Quite often, people come to us and ask us: can we do a tandem parachute jump? Skydiving, or free fall, is often carried out from an aerodrome. We then jump from a helicopter or a plane. The difference in paragliding is that you don’t fall: you fly, you glide, you are stable on the air. That’s why we don’t talk about paragliding jumping; even at takeoff, there are only a few steps to take to let yourself be handled by the glider.
Hang gliding is a triangle-shaped aircraft. The delta glides a little better than the paraglider, but much worse than a glider. One of the big differences with paragliding is that in hang-gliding, you are in a lying position, facing the ground.
The paramotor, on the other hand, is a paraglider but with a motor. We are talking about ULM, which means Ultra Light Motorized.

Why choose Puy-de-Dôme, in Auvergne for your first paragliding experience?

The Puys chain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is located in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Natural Park. This great site in France is a mecca for free flight, sheltering the nights of Icarus. In the open sky, you will encounter hang-gliders and sometimes even hot-air balloons.
A certified paragliding school generally works on sites managed by the French Federation (FFVL); this is the case of Puy-de-Dôme.
The Massif Central, home to the Puys chain and the Cantal, offers an ideal playground for paragliders.

While flying, you will be able to contemplate different panoramas depending on the place of takeoff. The advantage of the Puy de Dôme is that the top is rounded. This way, we can choose our flight area, depending on the wind direction.

Le Puy-de-Dôme (1465 metres above sea level) is an ideal paragliding spot in Auvergne, near Clermont-Ferrand and Vulcania.

THE PUY-DE-DOME

From the North takeoff you can observe the end of the Puys chain with the Puy de Côme and its two craters, the Puy de Pariou (visible on Volvic bottles), Vulcania and the volcano of Lemptegy.

From the east takeoff, you overlook Clermont-Ferrand and the Limagne fault.

To the south, you have a beautiful view of the volcanoes of Auvergne, the Puy de Laschamp, the Puy de la Vache and in the background Le Massif du Sancy and its highest point, the Puy de Sancy at 1886 m.

The western takeoff dominates the Dômes and Pontgibaud plateau.

From all these four take-offs, you can contemplate the volcanoes of Auvergne from the air sitting comfortably in the harness of your paraglider.

Thanks to the Panoramique des Dômes, which offers a rack and pinion shuttle train to get to the summit of Le Puy and access the flight sites, taste the joys of discovering Auvergne from another angle.

For a more sporty stay in the land of volcanoes, take the hiking trails, such as the Chemin des Muletiers or the Chemin des Chèvres.
