Most asked questions from wanna fly people
Yes. Both in solo and tandem flight equipment, it is mandatory to carry an emmergency parachute, called "reserve" or "rescue". It is the way out in the event of an unrecoverable failure.
The main differences of hang gliding and paragliding are the position in flight and the speed to take off. On the hang glider, you lie facing down and stand aside to the pilot. On the paraglider, sitting in front of the pilot. Paragliding takeoff is easier as it requires less speed, while on the hang glider it is necessary to run more! Paragliding has become more popular because it is much more practical. The equipment is smaller and lighter. You can carry it alone and it fit the trunk of your car.
In paragliding or hang gliding, the act of starting the flight is called lauching or taking off. There is no jump, at most a little run so that the "wing" (in the paraglider, the canopy) takes us off the ground. To refer to the practice of the sport, the correct is to say fly - "I flew paragliding this weekend".
No. Parasailing, also known as parascending or parakiting, is a recreational activity where a person is towed alone behind a vehicle (usually a boat) while attached to a canopy wing that resembles a parachute.Paraglider is a flying equipment that is able to launch from a hill (foot-launch) or from a tow. Unskilled people who wants to experience to fly on paraglider may do a tandem flight alongside a pilot.
I was always afraid of altitude so free flight was a personal challenge. The pilot demonstrated that he knows and mitigates the risks, which gave me a lot of confidence and security. The freedom you feel is incredible and the view is wonderful!
Amazing experience, expetacular landscape! I thought I’d be very scared, but no! The seat transmits safety and the pilot reassures you because he has control of the whole process. Super attentive! Very calm and safe flight! Can not wait to repeat on other sites! 😀
One of the top experiences of my life. I was dying to do paragliding and at the same time, afraid. A friend introduced me to this fantastic pilot from VoeDuplo.com. The guy was awesome, reassured me from the chat at the base of the hill until the flight. Summary: I got a friend and a passion for free flight!
The feeling of peace is amazing!
I made my first tandem paragliding flight in Pimenta-MG. As what is good deserves a second try, I made another 2 flights: in Japeri-RJ and in São Conrado, Rio de Janeiro-RJ. I can tell I’m already addicted to free flight!
It was an inexplicable sensation, beyond the boundaries of the mind. Axiety, fear, pleasure, lightness and peace, a lot of mixed feelings. I can summarize in FREEDOM. Therefore, I recommend to everyone who enjoys living to surrender to the pleasures that the world offers us with respect and love … Namaste!
