Frequently Asked Questions
What is a « Discovery » flight ?
The « Discovery" flight is a service that includes: the flight and machine presentation briefing, installation on board, the commented flight itself and the debriefing after landing.
Can several people fly on a « Discovery » flight ?
No. Our « Discovery » flights are carried out on board microlights (class 3 multi-axis or class 4 gyroplane). These machines are two-seater. Only 1 passenger and the pilot can take place together.
What is a Multiaxis ULM ?
A multi-axis ULM is an aircraft supported by a fixed wing. It is very close to an airplane, with a protected cockpit (see photos here). Its maximum mass is less than or equal to 500 kg for two-seaters. This mass can be increased by 25 kg in the case of a two-seater multi-axis ULM equipped with a reserve parachute, which is the case for our devices.
What types of microlights are used during « Discovery » flights ?
« Discovery » flights take place aboard our « FK9 » or our « Best Of Nynja », depending on their availability.
