WHAT IS THE TANDEM PARAGLIDER
The paraglider is a wing designed to allow the pilot to take off using leg thrust. It is characterized by the launch point along steep slopes such as mountainous ones. Paragliding, in fact, takes advantage of wind and height. The pilot maneuvers the wing through the suspenders connected to the ropes that act as handlebars. Its origins date back to the late ’60s and, today, it has become a real sport for which there are also competitions. Tandem paragliding is characterized by the presence of a certified instructor who steers the paraglider. In this way, the activity is safe for everyone and the passenger can enjoy the adrenaline experience without any worries.
HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE
Tandem paragliding in Norma, near Rome, starts at the meeting point indicated on the map, where you will be given the technical equipment. After a walk in the nature you will arrive at the launch point to start your adventure.
