Have you ever wanted to fly but you didn`t have the opportunity to do so? Now`s your chance! How do you feel about exploring the wonderful land of Transylvania?

This autumn we are organising the perfect event only for you - one week to paraglide!

Between the beautiful hills near Miercurea Ciuc you will have the chance to learn the secrets of paragliding. The BEST instructors, from the BEST paragliding school in Romania, will offer you theoretical and practical information.

What is this event about? In the week between 13th to 20th of September 2015 you will have the chance to attend courses on paragliding at Paramania Paragliding School in Miercurea Ciuc. In the beginning you will learn about aerodynamics, flying equipment, how to control the paraglide, and… you will have the first tandem flight! Exactly! All these from the first day!

Then, you will learn about security and safety in flying, and how to prevent the emergency situations and you will have about 8-10 individual flights. Already sounding good? Wait for it…....

During the next 5 days you will be introduced more and more into the art of paragliding! More and more flights on your own and day by day the altitude will increase! But what if I tell you that you will fly on your own up to 150 meters high? And that after all these days you will be able to make turns at 90 and 180 degrees. You will learn the most interesting secrets of paragliding, you`re gonna be the master of winds and you will be able to prove this, because you`re gonna get a certificate at the end of it. Of course, experienced instructors will supervise you and help you in any situation.
