Paragliding is perhaps the purest form of flying. Without motor you float in silence through the air. A surreal experience. You start with the aid of a winch. Slowly the winch is pulled in and in this way the instructor climbs to a height of approximately 400 meters.
Paragliding takes place in the regions of Almelo and Noordeloos. There is always a lot to see in the field. At the bottom of this page you will find a map with the locations. There are about 10 people at the scene to keep everything on track. From far away you can see the brightly colored paragliders floating through the air. That way you're already in the mood!
You do not only go to the air with an experienced tandem pilot, but you also get detailed information about the equipment and how, where and when you can fly. Of course, an instruction about take-off, landing and control also comes with this introduction.
Together with the instructor you will be connected to the winch cable. A few quick steps later the ground disappears under your feet and you climb up quietly. When you are at the right height the instructor disconnects the winch cable and you slowly float down. If the instructor can find the rising air (good thermal conditions) you can climb higher and stay in the air longer. The first flight is an introductory flight to give you the feeling of paragliding. You enjoy the beautiful view over the river landscape.
If you opt for two flights, you will receive an explanation about the operation of the paraglider during the second flight and you can already start to steer yourself!
With a third flight, there is more time to learn the control of the paraglider or the pilot can demonstrate spectacular flight maneuvers at your request. Paragliding can also be very sensational. How many special maneuvers the instructor can show depends on the weather conditions.
You do not need any experience for the tandem flight. You fly with an experienced instructor. There are a few things to keep in mind:
