The very first flight took place in 1984. John Jourdain accompanied by Jean-Claude Bétemps and Gérard Bosson, the inventors of paragliding, took to the skies of Reunion for their very first flight.
They fell in love with the island and decided to open a paragliding school here!
The flying and weather conditions on Reunion Island make it one of the greatest places for paragliding. Today, there are more than 600 members of paragliding clubs and 70 freeflight sites on the island. Beginner and experienced paragliders can fly here 300 days a year, to admire the whole island from the skies. From the lagoon to the volcano, across the lush green hills, the spectacular landscapes of Reunion Island from the skies will leave you with some unforgettable memories!
