Launching from Forclaz, the SIV flights are conducted above Lake Annecy, allegedly the cleanest lake in Europe, with landing at the designated SIV landing on the lake shore at our campsite.

This SIV course is a more intimate and intense, as the standard program has 2 flights in the morning, followed by a filmed debrief and siesta. And then a late-afternoon relaxing cross country flight, so sometimes 3 flights per day on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, providing pilots are rested and happy.

The group often stays at the same campsite, sharing chalets, which can be booked direct or through Escape.

You are taught all aspects of controlling your wing during the SIV, from deflations and wingovers to stall recovery and SATS, (if you wish). Then, when you fly XC, you have the added confidence and skill in glider control, which allows you to focus on positive things like finding lift and coring, which frees your mind and helps you fly further.
