Paraglide is more functional than parachute
As it gives you opportunity not only to jump, but to fly for a long time either. Besides you can choose yourself the proper moment to jump ~ gain necessary height, choose the suitable platform for landing and throw spare parachute. Paragliders confirm so. And you can`t deny it.There are three categories of paragliders:
Flying machines give us opportunity to fly – that’s why they are loved.
People move on the legs from their birth that is why chance to come true the dream about flights attracts everybody who is not afraid of the height.
The Flight gives you feeling of velocity and liberty. Manoeuvring by paraglide reminds navigating or driving a car, on the mind of paragliders. Free flight causes soul exultation. State of euphoria from the fact that you are flying, and the airstreams carry you on, can cure you for the heaviest form of depression, perfect your mood not only for one day, but for the whole week either.
Usually pilot makes launch with paraglide from the ground – from mountain or with the help of a winch. Pilot starts to run, canopy fulfills with air and than flies. You can get altitude using thermals, flying for hours, making cross-countries for a long distance and enjoying wonderful Bulgarian landscape.
There are optimal conditions in the centre of extreme kinds of sport and meditation “Shambhala” for taking up paragliding for experienced pilots as well as for beginners. Main advantage of “Shambhala” is unique climate and variety of weather situations. Here in Bulgaria you can perfect your flying skill, train technique of effective piloting in hard weather conditions.
Those who have never flown can try safe flight in “Shambhala” Without advance training you can fly in tandem with experienced instructor. If you have courage enough you can try piloting paraglide yourself. The stable paraglide always flies quicker downwards as it`s not capable to manoeuvre in flow. The more wing is mobile (therefore nimble and naughty, prone to adding), the longer distance you can pass on paraglide. And that`s why it`s proper for distant routes. When you fly high – you have more chances to find another rising flow. Displacement from one flow into another forms your route. The longer you fly, the more you become engaged in flight and consequently get more pleasure.
The more air is agressive, the longer it is possible to keep on height. The beginners have difficulties in processing the flows. When you study to pilot it’s hard for you to pass even a small route. You can`t see air with your eyes, you can only feel it or define with instruments. You should orientate in flows - find new flows as quickly as possible. You need to learn how to «centre» the flows. Here experience is required. Not at once you will learn where to “roll” weak flows about 0.2-0.5 m/s. Or where you will manage to race through the strong flows with the rate of rise about 4 m/s.
