The slow ride glider flight enables you to benefit from every aspect of gliding, thanks to its length of time. Never has a flying machine match a glider's performance ! It allows Men to come as closely as possible to the "purity of gliding" of our masters: birds of prey.           

The goal "travel and pleasure" in a glider, is the priority of this flight. The itinerary we will offer, will keep in mind your wishes but mainly of the weather conditions of the day, for comfort and turbulence reasons. There are multiple choices and we will mention together the best compromises. You could even, if you wish, take advantage of the double-controls to introduce you to piloting. We come back from this unique experience with heads full of images, but be careful, this flight is also a type of soft drug that usually lasts.    

 
For this kind of flight, we use the modern version of gliding thanks to our "independent glider" or "motorglider". This aircraft has its own engine to gain altitude and get himself in the first updrafts before making you taste the "complete gliding".

We recommend this aircraft from people susceptible to motion sickness.

Tips for a greater experience

- Concerning your attire, we advise you to wear a sweater or pullover (do not wear loose clothing), without forgetting sunglasses, a cap or hat. On the day of the fligh, do remember to check that your pockets are empty (no keys, diverse objects, or phone), for safety and comfort reasons.
- If you are a photo or picture enthusiast, you can bring you camera, as compact as possible, which we will ask of you to secure, in order to avoid jeopardizing the controls. Flight schedules can vary depending on the turbulence intensity. We ask of you to precise, during your registration, your aviation experience. It is only a question of comfort.
