“It’s incredible. We get to hike/drive up these stunning mountains and then fly off them! My favourite part is finding thermal bubbles. We use these thermals to gain altitude, similar to how eagles fly. Speaking of eagles, we get to fly with them too! It’s just mind-boggling. We’ve finally got a form of recreational aviation that is accessible, affordable and attainable by the average person.
It’s a pity that most people don’t realise how far paragliders have come in safety and performance since the start some 40 odd years back. Today, we are living the dream of unpowered human flight. What a time to be alive!” – Ria Moothilal, Grade B&C National Flight Instructor
