Generally, we advise at the day before the first day of training the feasibility of it. You will be notified by email or phone at that time. You can also consult flyeo.com on which we keep a information banner. If however despite our precautions a day is not "flyable", we will offer ground handling sessions or theoretical courses according to your experience. This day will be charged for.
We lend all the equiptment during the initiation and improvement courses (wing, harness, reserve, helmet, radio). For other courses, you must come with your usual equipment. However, if some of your equipment is defective, we will be able to rent replacement equipment to you.
We accept all types of reserve parachutes and all possible assemblies, as long as we feel it is safe! So you can come with your round reserve, square reserve, rogallo reserve or BASE rig if your equipment is in good condition and you know how to use it. However, In our opinion the best reserves are square reserves .
