The price includes the rental of the "wing". Should you have your own equipment, you can deduct €15 from the above prices. The rules:

  • Insurance: Special insurance that covers all related risks is necessary. The cost is €6 for 2 consecutive days. This is in connection with the French Federation of Free Flight (FFVL).
