Practical Guide


Mieussy : birthplace of paragliding

" In June 1978, three parachutists, Jean - Claude Bétemps, André Bohn and Gérard Bosson take off for the first time from a mountain ( Pertuiset) with a parachute, to reduce the cost of using a plane. Later, they will create the first club-school. "
