Why choose Les Ailes Du Lac for your paragliding baptism
We carry out “ecoflights”
Performing a tandem paraglider with Les Ailes Du Lac is an eco-responsible activity!
How ? We use updrafts instead of a transport shuttle. It is an exceptional situation, the take-off runway is located 50m from the landing area. For all our flights from Saint Vincent-les-Forts, we take off from the village, perform the ascending flight above the Serre-Ponçon lake, enjoy a panoramic view of the Hautes Alpes mountains and we return to land at the same place. So no fuel consumption before or after the activity. This specificity allows us to limit our carbon footprint.
YOUR OPINIONS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES…
You have questions,
Come and meet us in Saint Vincent les Forts to discover our two-seater paragliding activity. Our free flight site is easily accessible by road and offers you a magnificent panorama of the Serre-Ponçon lake and the peaks of the Hautes-Alpes. Parking is available with a children’s play area nearby. Picnic tables welcome you and allow you to spend a pleasant moment watching the paragliders fly in the sky of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. You will then have plenty of time to meet us, ask us a few questions and perhaps take the step that leads to tandem paragliding.
Did you know ? We said
Paraslope or paraglider ?
Indeed our aircraft are at the origins of parachuting sails diverted in Para “slope”, since their users jumped from the top of the mountains and no longer from an airplane.
Today 50 years later our equipment has evolved. To take off on the site of Saint Vincent les forts, a few steps at walking speed allow you to take off… Thus making tandem paragliding flight accessible to as many people as possible.

Our vision of paragliding sharing
Flying with the wings of the lake team is to share with you the emotions that moved us during our first flights. The deep reasons that push us to steal are difficult to explain, which is why we suggest that you live the moment and discuss it afterwards. The diversity of the practices of the pilots of the team extends from distance flight to acrobatic flight via hiking, walking and flying or speedriding. Experiencing a flight together is perhaps giving you the desire, like us, to fly higher further…
“Follies are the only thing you never regret.”
