The team is fantastic and the spot incomparable! For a first tandem flight, the instructor was very nice. The weather conditions were capricious but everyone was very responsive so that we could take advantage of the calm! Professionalism, safety and availability, we recommend!
A superb experience, a big thank you to Yannick who is an outstanding pro and to whom I entrusted our 4-year-old son! Thank you for this magical moment and for having reassured me so that I could relax and enjoy this wonderful flight! See you soon, I think we'll see each other again in August with our 4 big cuties to show them the dune from the sky!
So maverick flies airplanes but Yannick flies paragliders. And I highly recommend him. Thank you for the acrobatics, the videos and photos of your kindness and your professionalism, see you soon in the sky, I'll be back 😁😍🤪💯👏👍
An amazing experience to fly over the duneThank you so much and see you soon
