Tried and tested!
“A great experience to live and relive. Tandem jump, with my brother Stéphane for our respective birthdays. A very professional, friendly and reassuring team. A magnificent landscape, breathtaking. The weather was great and that was it! A looping at the exit of the plane, an intense free fall very appreciated, sharing of the superb sensations with the video-woman and man, that already the parachute opens, proposal of taking control for some raised turns…guaranteed pleasures, it was great!”
“I recommend. To celebrate our respective 40th birthdays, my husband and I decided to make a BIG jump! The team was super accommodating from the time we made the appointment (postponed 3 times due to COVID or weather) to the D-Day. On arrival, a debriefing to explain all the steps and put us in confidence. Successful bet! We are serene, our 2 instructors are hyper professional in addition to being nice, our jumps were simply perfect: after 15 minutes of flight in the plane, the freefall is exhilarating and then the vertical flight before landing allows us to appreciate even more the beautiful landscapes around the airfield. The cameramen at our side concocted some great videos. I clearly recommend the Fly Dream team for those who want to try the thrill of a first parachute jump! In any case, we will surely come back ;)”
