Cliff flights from Tracy are within walking distance with your rig on your back, and on a good day you can fly the 17km to the American Cemetery, past the Longues gun battery, the Le Buffey launchsite, across Port en Bessin, on towards the American landing beaches…and all the way back. The Le Bouffay launchsite is rather better furnished, and both sites offer beach landings at low tide .

Le Bouffay plays host to Paris based ELEMENTAIR (www.elementair.fr) paragliding school during the summer, who can give you your first experience with a Tandem flight, start you on your pilot qualifications, or brush up your technique depending on your level.


There is a small nursery slope inland at Creully, and an hour inland opens up all the possibilities of Swiss Normandy. Staying on the coast and heading an hour East gets you to Cabourg and Villers sur Mer close to Deauville, with even more exciting cliff flying.

It has been known for certain pilots to install wife and family here at Normandy Beach, and then sneak off themselves to the site offering the day's best flying, while family chill out here on the beach. Not that we'd suggest such a thing!

Flexible accommodation here means that we can look after groups of pilots, and we are quite happy to "cram" rooms with extra beds to keep costs down, BBQ,s in the courtyard make for a fine end to a day spent playing with the seagulls, and you can use our kitchen to sort out an evening meal…..if we haven't already got it on the stove for you.

Wet canopy after a dodgy beach landing? Hose it off and dry it under the bike sheds... that 30 ft washing line isn't there for socks you know!
