People always dream to fly like a bird. Independant and boundless. You can make your dream come true with paragliding. This sport is considered to be risky, but with practice you can do this perfectly. The air flow and direction is one of the determining factor. Paragliding should never be done during bad weather. Paragliding requires extensive training. There are many paragliding schools that you can select from. It is only natural for you to look for courses in your local area, but there are a number of other factors to be considered as well.
Paragliding is the recreational adventure sport consisting of lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no strong primary structure. The pilot sits on a harness below a fabric wing. The aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside has much impact on the flight.
Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover several kilometres. To take advantage of the lift, the pilot gain height by often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand metres.
Tandem paragliding and hang gliding flights are a popular introduction to the sport, and are available at most major launch sites worldwide.
The ideal location for paragliding are:
Flat ground (to avoid accidental launches).
Free of obstructions
Soft surface, such as grass or sand, to reduce damage.
Steady, laminar wind speed between 1 and 4 m/s (5 and 15 km/h).
