Fly as a seagull, fly like an eagle, fly like a hawk!

It is possible that you have already gone through a beach or a mountain and felt dazzled seeing a spectacle of one or several colored wings in the breeze, taking a paragliding pilot, and that such a vision has awakened some questions. Perhaps you even felt the desire to experience freedom and immense joy that only birds know. Birds and the people who dare to dream and seek to reach these dreams.

FAQ

What is the free flight?
It means flying using the forces of nature and using the pilot himself to take off and landed using his legs.
Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits on a chair or harness, or lies in a “canoe” similar to a suspended cocoon under the wing, made of tissue. The wing maintain the shape by the hanging lines, the pressure of the air that enters the openings in front of the wing and the aerodynamic air forces flowing from the outside. Although not using a motor, the flights from paraglider can flight many hours and cover distances from many hundreds of kilometers, although flights from one to two hours and covering a few dozens of kilometers are more common. Knowing how to explore the breezes and upwards air chains the pilot can gain height, often rising to altitudes a few thousand meters.
Although not using a motor, the paraglading flights can last many hours and cover distances from many hundreds of kilometers, although flights from one to two hours and covering a few dozens of kilometers are more common. Knowing how to exploit the breezes and ascending air bubles the pilot can gain height, often rising to altitudes of a few thousand meters.

Is it difficult?
It is not very difficult to become a paragliding pilot. The first thing it is necessary to have will. As long as it is up to age can think of entering the group of pilots who share the skies with seagulls or eagles.
After that you can think of contacting a school. Paraglider is as safe as riding a car or motorcycle. Of course no one, being inexperienced, picks up a car or a motorcycle and go to the road. Likewise, no one buys a paraglider and will fly without mastering the equipment.

Is it safe?
It is, in the same way that it is safe to drive a car or a motorcycle, knowing how it does!

So paragliding is just that?
No, not really. The paragliding allows a range of emotions.
Starting from a base of the simple and quiet flight of slope, it might want to acquire skills for higher flights. For example, advanced thermal flight. Then the pilot takes advantage of ascending columns of hot air, will rise inside them spinning such as an eagle, and can finally decide to turn his back in the wind and fly away for many kilometers!
