What is Paragliding

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” ~Michael Althsuler

Paragliding is an air sport in which a person uses a parachute-like wing to fly from a mountain, ridge, or cliff. It is considered one of the easiest and most beginner-friendly ways to experience human flight. While it may look daunting at first, with the proper instruction, almost anyone can safely take to the skies.

There are many reputable paragliding schools around the world where interested individuals can take lessons. These lessons usually involve ground school and actual flight time and will teach you everything you need to know to take to the skies on your own safely. 

Once you have completed your lessons and obtained your license, there are many ways to enjoy paragliding. Many people enjoy going out for rides with friends, while others participate in competitions or attempt daredevil stunts. No matter how you choose to enjoy paragliding, it will surely be an unforgettable experience.
