The Most Unique Sport Held in the Sky
Did you know paragliding differs from parachuting by including a jump-off from a special airplane? Yes, the ones who will paraglide should scatter from the top of the mountain and jump. It means, even the “preparation” session of this journey is quite thrilling and exciting!
After the jump, during the free-fall, the air flow surrounds your whole body and makes you feel as if you are not jumping down, but really falling off. Perhaps the most unforgettable part is this one. Then the slower and more “peaceful” part follows during which paragliders can observe the incredible landscape.
Paragliding is an official sport and various competitions are held in it. But you don’t need to be a professional paraglider to experience such intense emotions! You just need to listen carefully to the instructor –which surely you will, and follow his recommendations both before and during the flight.
We Never Trivialize Safety’s Importance
Alanya Paragliding activity will be led by an instructor who is fully in charge and control of the entire flight, as well as preparation and landing sessions. In other words, don’t be afraid and worry about safety; you’ll be a passenger in safety and comfort fully whose duty is to observe the landscape under his/her feet!
Before you start your flight, you will be told the rules of conduct and safety. You don’t need to have experience or special training to paraglide. But keep in mind that before jumping you will need to run quickly for 15-25 meters –so you definitely need some quick steps here! That’s why, you should be completely healthy and not constrained physically.
Also, there are age and weight restrictions: Your weight should be between 25 and 120 kg, and age 16 and 50 years.
Most Thrilling Experience You’ll Ever Have
