5 Things That You Should Remember While Paragliding

• If one wants to fly deliberately then he or she shall get the relevant training. Enough practice can make the flights successful. Listening to the instructor’s advice can help in a great way.

Paragliding allows flying to a height of about 10,000 feet and above, though a 600 feet gliding is deemed to be a safe one. The speed of the gliding is between the ranges of 25 km to 75km per hour. The hang gliding in Cape Town can stretch for much time that can be more than an hour. Nevertheless, power paragliding is much speedier than hang gliding. The ones who find thrill in speed should choose this one. So, whenever you think of paragliding be sure to go with an expert for a safer journey.
