Fly in a fighter jet in the Champagne region
A once in a lifetime experience
Not too far from Paris lies the region of Champagne, most famous for producing the sparkling beverage of the same name. Although it boasts many beautiful vineyards and manors where grapes for champagne are grown and the drink is produced, the region is very historical. Founded in 1065, the Champagne region is also home to the Reims Cathedral, where the kings of France once used to be crowned.
Get ready for the ride of a lifetime as you step into an Aero L39 Albatros fighter jet. You will be welcomed by the aviation team who will firstly give you a safety briefing to prepare you for the flight and get you in the right gear. This experience is not for the faint-hearted, as your pilot will perform loops in the air and other turns at a speed of no greater than 900km/h! The flight can be adapted to your desires – if you would prefer something more tame or more extreme just let your pilot know. To top off your experience, at the end you will leave with a small film of your flight so that you never forget this incredible day!
At 1889 Travel France, we will be happy to customize the experience according to your guests’ wishes!

Summer season in Paris
August typically means that summer is well and truly underway, and Paris is bustling with tourists. While Parisians tend to escape the city to their country homes or more tropical destinations, that doesn't mean that the city has nothing left to offer. From the Paris Plages on the Seine riverbanks, to open air concerts and film festivals in parks, both tourists and Parisians alike can enjoy the city's summer activities!
