PARAGLIDING

Flying above the Carpathians, the Chornohora mountain range

Due to smooth Carpathian slopes paragliding became a popular kind of sports in Bukovyna. Today paragliding is the easiest and safest way to experience a flight. A paraglider is the most reliable and the lightest aircraft, the most committed intermediary between the human and the sky. Paraglider flights are open to everyone who wishes to fly and don’t require long-term preparation.

 

If you wish just a one-time entertainment, you can make a trial flight. If you are too much anxious, you may try a tandem flight with a licensed pilot.

 

Paragliding is exercised through the whole year provided good weather, both in Chernivtsi suburbs and in different Districts. Good weather means that meteorological conditions are favourable for trial flights, it’s not raining and the wind is gentle.
