Reasons Behind So Much of Craze for Powered Paragliding


Out of numerous aerial sports available in the industry, paragliding is one of the most popular events so far. This is one of the most sought-after aerial sports and is played in different countries all over the world. It might seem dangerous and highly adventurous but it is not that what people actually feel. In this post, I will share some of my experience of paragliding and will suggest that why adventure junkies have so much of craze for this sport.
But before that, I would like the readers to know about the origin of this exciting event. Although it is not certain but people say that David Barish was the first ever person to paraglide and it was in 1960’s. Barish was working on a project where he was assigned to develop a space capsule recovery device known as “Sail Wing” for NASA. Now let’s check out the factors.

  • The Most Safest Aerial Games

It is already stated that out of all the air-borne sports available, paragliding is one of the safest ones. The best thing is that people don’t have to qualify eligibility tests or don’t have to have a license to fly. It will take 5-6 days at a stretch to master the skills of paragliding properly. So far, officially there are no records of accidents related to this event. So, what’s your take?

  • This is Not for the Speed Freaks

If you feel that you are the one who loves to take on speed tests then this is definitely not for you. It will be best if you opt for hand gliding in Cape Town or in any other preferred location. This game is entirely based on the wind and it allows the pilot to float along with the speed of air.

  • Enjoy Marvelous View

This is one such game through which a person can enjoy the marvelous view from the top and on the top of that, there is no threat of falling from the top. While floating into the blues, a person can enjoy the bird’s eye view.

  • Cover Miles and Miles

The best part is that you can go miles after miles. Will Gadd, world-champion in powered paragliding has covered a distance of 263 miles and this is so far the best ever stats available in the history of this event. Do you think that you can also break the mark?

Hope the readers liked the pointers discussed above and they will feel more motivated or inspired to take part in this event. Don’t worry about the safety aspect because it will be taken care by the organizing body and needless to mention you will be proper training for the same.
