Fly over beautiful French countryside in a microlight at the head of a V formation of X geese! Yes this is possible!
A truly breathtaking opportunity to join “Birdman” micro pilot Christian Moullec, a Frenchman who has successfully trained protected geese to adopt migration routes, away from guns and to fly alongside with them. Christian has successfully hand-reared orphaned geese from birth and persuaded them to accept his microlight as a parent bird and to fly with him in formation along a migratory route across beautiful French landscapes to safe wintering grounds. The geese have come to accept him as their parent!
For over 20 years, Christian has an extraordinary relationship with these birds and he loves to share his passion. Christian first starting flying with birds back in 1995 in a bid to migrate them to areas where they were well protected and stop their numbers declining.
