Itinerant paragliding course

Cross country your progression's service !

You are independent on your usual spots ?

Freedom Parapente takes you where you'll be flying, discovering new horizons.

The place choice depends on the season, weather and your will: Massif Central, Alpes, Apes du Sud, etc....

Our purpose: optimize our calendar to give you unforgettable flights !

 

A course a little different from the others in bivouac mode!

The objective is to improve your paragliding skills in places where you have probably never flown before in France. When you arrive at Freedom on Monday morning, you will decide with the instructors and the other trainees, according to the weather, which places are the most favourable for paragliding in France, and you will leave directly by truck to discover these new sites!
To optimize the time of practice, no logistic constraints during this course (rent of hotels, campings, or others)! You bring everything you need for bivouac (tent, sleeping bag, ...), for your hygiene (clothes, toilet bag, ...), some food for the mornings, your paragliding equipment and you are ready to go on an adventure!
A week of training where you will be guided by the weather, where paragliding will be the priority for all, and where conviviality, sharing and communication will be the essential points.
