The Algrange paragliding spot in winter

In winter as in summer, the Algrange spot is an excellent playground for paragliding pilots of all levels.

  • The first pilots spread their wings there in the 1980s
  • In the 2000s, the site was almost banned from access by the Conservatoire des Sites Lorrains (see the remains of this ban on the signs planted next to the car park)
  • It has been officially authorized since 2007, thanks to the energy deployed by the MosAiles club committee (see regulations and signed agreement here ...).

The maintenance of the site was done before by burning (or pastoral burning). Hedges, brambles and weeds were very rare then.

Since it was classified Natura 2000, it is the members of the MosAiles club who are responsible for removing all the line hooks from the take-off area and the hedges down the slope have been extended.

The next annual maintenance of the site is scheduled for April 10, 2021 and we are counting on your solidarity to come and lend us a hand (more info here ...).
