Speed Flying is the newest and most adrenaline intense sport for those pilots with a lust for adventure. http://www.acromacedonia.com/speedriding.html
Mountaineering? Imagine hiking or climbing to the summit with a 8kg backpack then flying back to your car in a matter of minutes. Speed Gliders (14. 16 or 19 meters) are being launched from mountaintops and steep meadow launches, flying out into the valley to experience yet another high, man’s oldest dream of flight.
On the snow, this new sensational flying sport is called Speed Riding – a blend of paragliding and skiing that lets you ride/fly the slopes at incredible speeds. Adding the flight manoeuvrability of a glider to the turn of your skis adds a whole new dimension to coming down the mountain. It’s an exhilarating sport that will excite and fascinate both participants and spectators.
For years, pioneers have been using Paragliders to descend from mountain tops. Now your turn. With the technology of incredibly light materials, coupled with the knowledge of aerodynamic performance and stability used in paragliding, descending flight is taking on a whole new meaning!
