Flying

 
 The Aerodrome de Lalbenque, just 8 km from Manoir Les Gaillardoux, offers guests the opportunity to bring their own private plane – and offers adrenaline junkies a number of ways to get their “fix”!
Parachuting – Centre École de Parachutisme de Cahors
The Cahors parachute centre offers the opportunity to experience a one-off tandem jump with a qualified
instructor – following a short training session on the ground, you will hop into the plane with an
experienced instructor for a tandem jump from up to 4000 m. After a short free fall, the parachute opens and you have several minutes to enjoy the beautiful views of the countryside during a peaceful descent.
If you wish, your jump can even be filmed!
Watch their Parachuting and Skydiving videos for a preview of what you can experience

The area offers many wonderful opportunities for outdoor activities


 

Gliding – Centre de vol à voile Lotois

In this often noisy and hectic world, a trip in a glider is an ideal way to get away from it all while enjoying a bird’s eye view of Manoir Les Gaillardoux and the surrounding countryside of the Causses de Quercy and the Lot.The gliding centre offers leisure flights with an experienced glider pilot.

Alternatively, if you hold a gliding licence that is valid in France, bring your own glider and the club will launch it for you. There is plenty of parking at the Manoir for your glider in its trailer.
