FLYING INFLATABLE BOAT
It is the marriage of a rigid inflatable boat and a hang gliding wing, imagined and built by Polaris, an italian company. A remarkably efficient and best-of-breed machin for our region and a very different way to hover close to the waves or by the clouds, surrounded by the Agriates desert and its legendary beaches, Saleccia, Lodu... with the Cap Corse and the village of Nonza on the horizon.

The flying boat ...
> THE FIB: designed in the 80s by the company Polaris Motor s.r.l in Gubbio in Italy, the FIB (Flying Inflatable Boat) is registered with the International Aeronautical Federation. With a wing of 11.15 meters (36 feet), it has a two-stroke Rotax 582 engine and an 80 liter tank, with a maximum speed of 90 km / h (55 miles / h) and several hours of autonomy.
> WHY? The flying boat, with its semi-rigid hull, flexible wing and solid engine is very well suited to explore the protected Gulf of Saint Florent and its surroundings. In addition to our tandem paragliding activities, the flying boat offers the opportunity to discover the beautiful wild landscapes of the region and a more contemplative approach to flying.
