A little backstory…
If you’ve seen such documentary films as Winged Migration, which follows the lives of wild migratory birds in their natural habitat, then by way of association you know Dominique, who owns and operates Delta Evasion. He worked as an ultralight aviation pilot during filming.
The project made such an impression on him that he decided to put his knowledge to good use by offering others the chance to embark on the type of flying experience a that one usually only sees in the movies.
How did it all start?
It all started in May 2021, by imprinting fourteen goslings right from birth. When they are born, goslings imprint on the first beings they see, and for the fourteen aforementioned little ones, it was Dominique and his colleague Cassandre.
After spending time breaking them in and several test flights side-by-side with his geese, Dominique wanted to offer to as many people as possible the chance to enjoy such an amazing, one-of-a-kind experience sharing the skies with these majestic migratory birds in a truly beautiful natural setting.
When is the best time of year to fly?
From September to June, especially in the fall: flying over Lake Annecy alongside a Canadian goose, high above the Bout du Lac Nature Reserve, Duingt Castle, and Talloires Bay makes for a truly unique adventure that you just have to experience at least once in a lifetime. The memories of this rare opportunity, in such a breathtaking décor, will stay with you forever.
As a bonus: the flight in an ultralight aircraft also offers the opportunity to learn all about what is currently at stake for migratory birds when it comes to the natural environment.
