Do you want to feel what is the maximum overload experienced astronauts during their flight to the orbit? Well, our acro flight is one of few real chances for an ordinary person to safely enjoy this unreal feeling. But not just that!
We will put you firmly into the harness and explain to you how to help us with taking off. We will prepare our glider and the rest of the gear. Also we will tell you how to use the sport full HD camera and what are the best way to shoot the whole flight. Then later, we will check you once more, attach you to us and the glider and then we will just wait for the right breeze.
Short run, last feeling of the ground and we fly! Nothing that complicated.
There is always an official landing place underneath every take off. In the end of the flight, we will approach the landing secotr and focus on the last phase of the landing – touching the ground again. In order to be sure that you will not hurt your ankles during the landing, we will ask you to stretch your legs and put them up to utilise the protector which is under your seat. The glider will fall behind us shortly and you can enjoy the old-new feeling of solid earth underneath your feet.
Instant adrenalin in a tin cover – that is a funny possibility to surprise your friends and relatives. The gift package of the acrobatic flight contains closed tin can with a T-shirt in it and the gift voucher and further instruction.
We will be happy to help you with choosing the right type of flight for you. Both personally in El Speedo office or by phone.
Acrobatic flying is designed for those kind of people for whom are the ordinary things just not enough. If you love to experience intense states of body, endophin all over your body, wide american smiles after overcoming extraordinary situations, then don’t hesitate and come to try this! At first, the pilot will gain with you some altitude which offers you a wonderful view. Then you are about to reach the point above the landing site with enough altitude for maneuvers. For the beginning you will swing over the gliders (wingover) followed by deep spiral dive with descent over 20 metres per second. If you would love to have more rotation, the pilot may carry out maneuver called SAT when you actually rotate backwards.
Duration of flight: 10 to 15 minutes depending on current weather conditions and acro maneuvers
We usually go to these sites for acrobatic flights in Beskydy:
– Lysá hora.
For acrobatic flights abroad, the most common for us are following:
– Krippenstein (Halstatt lake, Austria),
– Bassano del Grappa (Veneto, Italy),
– Lijak (Nova Gorica, Slovenia),
– Kobala, Stol (Tolmin, Slovenia),
– or any other site in the Alps.
Suitable flying conditions:
We can offer this type of flight any time of the year. In Czech Republic, the season begins in march and ends in late october. In the other sites it depends mainly on snow coverage. The flight is usually done with mild wind, up to 8 m/s which of course depends on particular site. Ultimately, we choose the site of your flight by considering the wind direction.
Demands for the passenger
– the passenger is suitable for both children and adults; all that matters is you weight which should be from 5 to 115 kg
– for the flight itself, we recommend you to wear high trekking shoe with fix ankle, long trousers and windproof jacket. It is nice to have sunglasses when the sun is shining happily.
Before the flight itself, there is a short preparation including the instructions for landing. We will adjust the harness to your size and try a little bit of running with the harness. If interested, the tandem pilot will explain you principles of paragliding. Then you will be seated and got a helmet.
After a short running down the hill, you will be flying. You will be seated in front of the pilot, literally in the first row. The flight itself takes roughly from 6 to 12 minutes which depends mainly on current flying condition.
You may shoot your own pictures if you take your camera for flying. However we recommend this option for the thermal flight. It is so much better just to enjoy the view. We offer you to take the pictures or make a video ourselves.
Of course, you may invite your closest to watch you flying directly on start or they may watch the landing.
The number of passengers:
The tandem glider is just for two persons, ie one pilot and one passenger. However, if interested, let us know in advance that you would like to start within a group and we will gather our crew to fly with you all!
