MOTOR PARAGLIDING EXPERIENCE
Greece is a traditional holiday destination, well-known for its endless beaches, thousands of islands, historic monuments, fascinating lifestyle and Greek cuisine. The unique nature and landscapes this country provides are best discovered by the air. We take you to different flying areas in the highest mountain regions of Greece as well as to beautiful coastal sites near the sea. Another matter close to our heart is the preservation of our natural environment and the rich local traditions and culture of the area. We hope to be able to open your eyes to the beauty of nature in our region.
Powered Paragliding, also known as Paramotoring, is a form of ultralight aviation where the pilot wears a motor on his or her back (a paramotor) which provides enough thrust to take off using an adapted paraglider or paramotor wing. It can be launched in still air, and on level ground, by the pilot alone — no assistance is required. is minimally regulated and requires no license. The ability to fly both low and slow safely, the 'open' feel, the minimal equipment and maintenance costs, and the portability are claimed to be this type of flying's greatest merits. Powered Paragliders (PPGs) usually fly between 15 mph and 45 mph (25 km/h and 70 km/h) at altitudes from 'foot-dragging in the grass' up to 18,000 ft (5.400 m) although most flying is done under 500 ft. (150 m.) AGL (Above Ground Level). Due to the Paramotor's slow forward speed, it must not be flown in high wind conditions. Paramotors can be flown during any season of the year anywhere on the planet so long as you avoid flying during the turbulent (thermic) times of the day, and not in high wind conditions. This typically means at low Sun azimuths, so in the morning or in the late afternoon depending, of course, on weather conditions. It's an amazing experience if you want to do something special!
