EasyJet to Marseille

Low cost carrier EasyJet, continue its schedule of flights from Gatwick to Marseille now giving our clients the shortest possible transfer to our La Motte du Caire base. Transfer time from Marseille in to Sisteron is typically only 1 1/2 hours. Book early and you can get flights from £29 upward. Easyjet also announce the introduction of a flat rate for excess paragliding baggage as "sporting equipment", we believe that the rate will be 29 Euros each way but you should confirm this at time of booking directly with your carrier.

New trips

This season we have introduced three new trips.

De Aar - South Africa - thermalling and big distance flying. So you have never towed - no matter as a conversion course is included. Email us for details

New Products

As usual we will be continuing to sell our wide range of Paragliders and equipment - New arrivals for the season will include the excellent Pro-design range of top quality wings and harnesses. Our commitment to BGD, Nova, Gin and Independence will of course continue and we feel that Pro-design will compliment our range fully.

We have a demo wings from Gin, Nova, Independence and BGD available this season.

Gin Yeti 3

The new Yeti 3 lightweight Paraglider is now available. it is 500gm lighter than the previous model mostly because of the introduction of the plastic wire leading edge stiffners replacing the old mylar panels. The wing comes up fairly fast but shows little tendancy to overfly. In flight it has an improved glide and is ever so slightly faster than the Yeti 2. Overall, if lightweight paragliding is your bag then the Yeti 3 fills the slot perfectly.
