Before the start, the pilot will give all the necessary instructions concerning taking-off and landing, after which the most interesting part will start! The passenger will only have to make a take-off run for 5-10 meters (depends on the wind strength) to start the flight, after which all your fears and doubts will remain on the ground and you will enjoy the feeling of weightlessness. Depending on weather conditions and the agreement of the pilot, you can take the control and steer the glider to experience the ease and joy of the flight.

Paragliding is an indescribable extreme emotion, sensation of freedom, which cannot be experienced on the ground and is difficult to be conveyed in words. Everyone should experience it!
