you dreaming to fly? Nowadays people have several options to fulfill such a dream – much more than in the near past. You can try things like flying an ultralight airplane, making BASE jumps, flying a hang glider or paraglider, skydiving and indoor skydiving. In this article I’ll focus on two of the most popular options – both are “engine free” – flying your own light sport aircraft is really complex and expensive, so let’s not talk about that. Let’s instead of that see whether Paragliding or Skydiving is the right sport for you. Watch video in link below

Paragliding is a recreational activity, considered an extreme sport, practiced by using an engine-free aircraft. The aircraft used in paragliding are extremely simple and they are often called just “wings”. A typical paraglider consists of a fabric wing and a harness. There is no cockpit like in the “real” gliders neither a hard wing like the ones that hang gliders have. Exactly this however is one of the important reasons for the raising popularity of paragliding – paragliders are affordable and don’t take much space. You can even put one in a large backpack, which certainly can’t be done with a glider.
