Make a paragliding flight It is very easy.
The driver will take you in flight is very experienced in addition to enabled, and first we will assess the weather conditions for takeoff with great care to ensure the opportunity to carry out the flight.
Ascertained that the conditions are appropriate, will begin preparing the flight equipment.
The wing from paragliding is designed exclusively for two, and international homologation tests. It has an even greater strength of a plane, in fact resists well 8-9 times the maximum load expected, 200 kg x 8 = 1600 kg approx!
After you open the wing on takeoff, you check the lines by freeing them from any tangles, you switch to check the harnesses and then wear them. Close the buckles, adjusting the leg loops and waist straps without tightening them too much not to restrict movement during takeoff. A slight adjustment of the straps will complete l ’ operation. The feeling of slowness of the straps is perfectly normal because it will allow a standing position during the short ride and sitting comfortably in flight which may also have a certain duration… C ’ is, Of course, even a helmet to wear and fasten.
We're coming to takeoff: After having fitted the beam of sailing to your harness, the pilot will invite you to come before him and snap the two carabiners straps where all the lines of paragliding. The arms are free to have a better balance during take-off. Then describes the passenger takeoff:
“… We will make two or three quick steps that will help to pull the sail together at shoulder straps which I hold in my hand, This will thus rise above us bulging… at this point we will resume moving forward on the slope with increasing gait, lighter up to lift off the ground after a few meters…”.
Watch videomix which follows some tandem flights in Castelluccio di Norcia !
We are in the air, It's time to sit more comfortably using your hands to fit better in the inside plate hard ’ harness.
In flight you can talk without problems, There will be only the rustle of the wind in your ears. You can tighten up the rugged suspension strap, but it is not necessary, stable and safe location. We're travelling in ’ air at a speed of approximately 40 km/h, but the ground running appears to be moving just…
If l ’ the air is quiet and there are many other wings in flight, you will drive by holding the handles of the commands that run on the nearby suspenders. These will also be left, will remain in the pulley where the lanyard attached to them. To run a tack you pull a command and it leans on the same side with the body. To return to straight flight, command is returned to its original location. The stay will be longer or shorter depending on the altitude and the presence of updrafts and, If desired, You can make some tack with greater inclination to savor the pleasant sensations of centrifugal force and dell ’ horizon that tilts.
When you reach the landing field vertical, you will dispose of the excess fee on one edge of the field with turns to “eight” and there will be the final straight section by placing itself in an upright position before contact with the ground. The ground rushes before the ’ braking commands that operated at one meter above the ground, crash almost totally forward movement. His feet touch the ground and passengers must make sure that the legs are supported at their bodies, in fact some times happens that tends to crumble to the ground in search of the sitting position.
After having moved from ’ landing area, you will fold paraglider, carried out in two, It will take about three minutes.
The directions provided earlier are certainly useful for those who decide to tackle this wonderful experience, and everything will be anticipated and repeated by the pilot (in the possession of ’ for tandem flight) in the various phases of flight (takeoff, flight and landing), facilitating the passenger to get comfortable.
Are sufficient leisure clothes, comfortable and warm with appropriate footwear to short trips in the mountains. Gloves and Balaclava will be useful for cold days.
The price includes transportation to the point of takeoff, l ’ insurance and rental of ’ whole equipment.
