Sort out your fun-life! Join local paragliding groups. Follow, friend and meet other paragliders. Paragliding and a whole range of leisure activities.
Paragliding is the leisure activity and competitive sport of flying paragliders. Paragliders are lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched flying wings. The pilot is suspended below in a harness. The equipment is easy to carry, setup and fly. Paragliders gain altitude by catching thermals and can rise higher than the spot they launched from. Paragliders can soar for hours and cover great distances.
Paragliding is a thriving sport and it only takes a couple of weeks to train as a pilot. As you gain experience, you'll learn to soar and make longer flights. You'll have a peaceful ride with a bird's eye view of the countryside. If you want a faster thrill, try speed flying where the wing is already inflated when you launch. Start flying with your local club for a sociable way to take to the sky.
