Is the landing dangerous?
Not at all, the pilot and passenger land gently on their feet, unlike skydiving where the landing can be more brutal. We recommend good trainers as the grassy ground can be slippery during the landing.
Where is the landing point in Annecy?
The official landing spot is the one in Doussard, where paragliders and hang gliders come to land. Our school is located right next to it!
And to finish, here is a little bonus question:
What is the longest you can stay in the air with a paraglider?
For hours and hours if the weather conditions allow it and if the pilot has the necessary stamina. Some people have flown more than 11 hours in a row! Records for distance and time are usually set in Brazil, where the days are long and the aerological conditions optimal.
