Air Activities

  

Paragliding and paramotoring is where you sit beneath a parachute type fabric wing and float around on the wind and thermals. Paramotoring is where you have a big fan behind you to propel you forwards.

Paragliding is a recreational and competitive flying sport. A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing, whose shape is formed by its suspension lines and the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing.

Paramotoring is where you have a large fan motor behind you that propels you forward. This gives you more directional control.
