A new French Startup, FlyView, is now offering spectacular experience of flying over Paris and its most famous monuments. For the first time ever, anyone can experience a real tour of Paris and a unique opportunity to see Paris from above. For just $15, FlyView will offer you a unique virtual reality experience within walking distance from the Opéra Garnier.  Yesterday, the opened its door to visitor to get a unique virtual reality attraction where visitors can visit Paris from the sky with a jetpack, taking in real-life 360 degree views of monuments and scenery.

With the help of FlyView’s “jetpack” flight simulator, visitors get incredibly close to the sites that make the City of Light one of the most beautiful places in the world. Visitors enter FlyView from Place de l’Opéra.

They arrive in a lobby resembling an airport terminal with check-in counters, flight attendants and screens then provide information on the upcoming flights. The launch area has 50 jetpacks, making it one of the world’s largest virtual reality installations. Once on board its jetpack (mounted on actuators), and equipped with a virtual reality helmet (HTC Vive), the visitor sees himself take off and rise above the rooftops of Paris. The flying sensations are more real than life.

An unprecedented technological feat! Visitors will be able to explore around 20 monuments in total, flying close by and at a low altitude.
