Instruction in English and German language
Nowadays everybody can fly, just get out from the sofa and learn how to fly!
This is a young sport, what became popular in the 80s after long experimentation. People can take his wing on his back to the peak and from there they fly free with the winds. It is possible make cross-country tours (100-200km distance) from the take-off places absolutely free like the birds from year millions, or make acrobatic flight; it depends just on your habit. The paragliding is the most free form to fly. Today the technic is absolutely perfect, and gives safety flight experience for the paraglider pilot. After the compilation of equipment, you can pull with the lines your wing over your head, and take just few steps and you are in the airspace. All-round over and over you can flight with the thermals (rising air currents), to the clouds, over mountains, lakes, towns. Landing is also relative simple: you just have to navigating over the landing area, and after the approach from the final gliding soft touch the ground. Paragliding gives you every time new experiences discovering the nature; get to know interesting people and things. The paragliding today is the most known form of aviation all-round the world.
