Paragliding safety

People always dreamed of having wings and flying up into the sky. The team SkyAtlantida has been arranging paragliding flights during 9 years and has helped many people to implement their dream – to enjoy the feeling of a free flight, the opportunity to float beneath the clouds, as if you had wings. Almost anyone can touch the sky. This became possible due to experienced tandem pilots-instructors. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the unique landscape of Georgia feeling its flavor from a bird’s eye view.

Paraglider is an ultralight aircraft which is made of specific materials. The paraglider is fixed to the harness systems of a passenger and a pilot with help of straps and carabiners. In case of emergency there is a reserve parachute in the instructor’s harness.

Paraglider and modern parachute look very similar as a wing, sometimes they are even confused with each other, but they are completely different. A parachute is originally designed for dynamic opening and descent – it is a safety tool, and a paraglider is a complete ultralight aircraft which can gain altitude, flying for hours covering distances of over 500 kilometers.

What you should know about safety and how to prepare for the flight will be described below.
