Décollage de l'Aiguillette

en Les Houches

Practice : paragliding Orientation : south Observations/dangers: take off necessarily on the crest, Les Houches side because the limit of the nature reserve of Carlaveyron.

Flight conditions: best by the end of the morning / beginning of the afternoon.

Dangers / Difficulties:
- Inflating the glider is often awkward as the launch is on a camber & the slope drops away quickly causing a small rotor on the ground where the glider is prepared.
- The aerology of the site is somewhat unusual in the thermodynamic conditions.
- The whole site is at the limit of a large rotor generated by the plateau of Coupeau (situated to the right of take off) – avoid this zone. To the left of take off the Western shoulder of the Merlet animal park offers good soaring conditions.

Level: confirmed to cross pilot.

Landing: Cachat's gravel. Be careful! Very technical landing: the gravel is not always free for landing due to the works going on there. Next to the Arve torrent.

Specific rules: avoid flying above the animal park in order to not disturb the animals and avoid any conflicts with the owners.
