Paragliding is a type of active vacation implying flight and piloting a paraglide. A paraglide flight is performed with the special wing made of light fabric which is attached to the seat with ropes. It is totally safe when following the elementary safety precautions.
A paraglide moves exposed to wind currents and gravity force. First of all, paragliding is an opportunity to feel as if you were a flying bird, to get some extreme share, and unite yourself with the element of wind.
Flights are conducted over Kherson Mountains not far from the settlement of Stanislav on the coast of the Dnipro-Bug estuary. Bird’s eye panorama of the landscape is utterly fabulous!
How is a glide flight conducted
A transfer from Kherson is arranged to the location. You also can go by a scheduled bus that goes from the central auto station of Kherson or by your own car. The distance from Kherson is only 45km.
A short safety induction is carried out on the spot. Before the flight instructors explain the way to properly use equipment and render necessary safety guidelines.
To fly a paraglide you don`t need any special equipment. It`s enough to wear a comfortable outfit according to the weather. Among desirable accessories there is a wind jacket, sunglasses and a head gear.
Before the start instructors thoroughly study the weather conditions. If the weather permits, the guest accompanied by a pilot gathers speed, catches air current, and abruptly rises over ground. In the process of the flight you control a paraglide spreading the wind currents all over the surface of a parafoil. Landing is performed at the same spot where the flight starts.
