Tandem Flight Bi-Cool

A flight 100% Relaxed, 15 to 20 minutes of flight. Ideal for children and for sensitive people, we propose a first flight ‘smooth like a dream’ to discover paragliding in all it’s simplicity.

The Tandem flight Bi-cool is organised like the discovery flight but in calm air conditions and it’s a shorter flight. It can be done in the morning from 10:00 for passengers weighing less than 80 kilos or the afternoon with no weight limit.

You will be welcomed at the landing site of TROINEX where you will be provided with all necessary equipment (helmet, climbing shoes, flight suit …). After getting to know your pilot, the climb to the summit of Salève is made by mini-bus and it is often where the adventure begins …

From Tuesday to Sunday : 10h00 – 11h30 – 13h30 – 15h00 – 16h30 – 18h

Every day except Mondays from March to the end of October.

From 10:00 until 18:00.

It takes about 1:20 for the whole performance.

There is no limit to age in tandem paragliding. For the little ones, five years seems to be a reasonable age … The important thing is that it is the child who asks to fly. Indeed, the scariest part is before taking off. Once we’re off, there’s nothing to be scared of. This is why there is no obligation for a medical certificate and there are no age limits. So we were actually able to fly in a tandem a gentleman who was celebrating his 100th birthday!

For people who have serious health problems, it is best to seek advice from their doctor who knows them well. We can fly people with disabilities, just notify us in advance because in some cases we call on a specialised instructor who flies with a suitable wheelchair.

Once at the summit, a take-off is chosen according to the weather conditions of the moment, your pilot prepares the flight equipment and installs you in your harness while communicating the necessary information and answering any questions you may have; The take-off is done without difficulty; To sum up, just run. You realise then that, contrary to what one can imagine, take-off is done in a natural way … “It is unbelievably smooth! “.

In the air, after a very quick transition to the third dimension, you have the feeling of flying the most natural in the world! In direct contact with the elements you can feel flowing around you, you get a unique view; In front of your pilot, the view is completely clear … You can watch the scenery pass under your feet, sometimes even you will surprise a Mountain Goat walking on the steep terraces of Salève!

After a flight of about fifteen minutes, duration varies according to the thermal ascents of the day, it is time to return to the mainland. In spite of a legitimate apprehension, you will be surprised again by the softness of the maneuver: almost at zero speed, you only need a few steps to find yourself on the ground, still surprised and certainly dazzled by this wonderful experience. The rest of the program is simple, once your flight report has been completed you will receive a certificate of air christening and it is time to view our film…

A t’on le vertige en parapente ?

C’est la question la plus courante mais la réponse est simple, le vertige n’existe pas en parapente. Il faut savoir que le vertige ne peut exister que si l’on a un repère par rapport au sol (qu’il soit horizontal, vertical, ou de n’importe quel type), et ce n’est plus le cas en l’air. Certaines personnes peuvent avoir une appréhension avant le vol, et c’est tout à fait normal, mais ce n’est pas grand chose et de toute façon c’est vite oublié une fois en vol.

Comment tient-on en l’air ?

Pour faire durer un vol en parapente, le pilote doit exploiter des zones d’ascendances thermiques. Ce sont des zones d’air plus chaud que l’air environnant et qui monte. En été, un vol peut durer plusieurs selon les conditions et feeling du pilote.

Faut-il une condition physique particulière pour un vol en biplace parapente ?

Le biplace en parapente n’est pas un sport physique. Les phases de décollage et d’atterrissage se font en douceur et le vol est une simple balade paisible. Les seuls moments ou il faudra peut être courir un peu sont le décollage et l’atterrissage, et encore. Toutefois, pour les personnes à forte corpulence, il sera nécessaire d’être dynamique lors du décollage.

Y-a-t-il des contres indications à la pratique du parapente biplace ?

Oui, il y a bien quelques contre indications à la pratique du parapente en biplace. Les personnes ayant une insuffisance cardiaque, les épileptiques, et quelques autres cas bien particuliers. En cas de doute, n’hésitez pas à nous contacter.

Il y a t-il un âge minimum ou maximum pour pratiquer du vol libre ?

Il n’y a pas d’âge minimum ou maximum pour pratiquer cependant l’âge minimum légal pour ce présenter au passage du brevet de vol libre est 16 ans.
