HANG & MOTOR-HANG GLIDING IN BULGARIA


The relief of Bulgaria is extremely diverse - on an area on 111,000 sq km between 0-2,925 m of altitude there is a variety of vast valleys and low lands, hills and mountains, and extremely beautiful rock phenomena. This together with the great thermal conditions in Bulgaria all the year around allows hang gliding lovers to enjoy vast range of opportunities to practice their favorite sport.

 Hang gliding

The desire to fly has always been in everyone of us , but not everybody has had the opportunity to make it happen. Nearly all people are fascinated with the thought of flying like a bird, but most people are earthbound and have always excuses not to give it a try. The first step is always the most difficult, but the most rewarding as well and only those with the real spirit of adventurers have gone through it. You don't have to be staggeringly fit and you don't have to be shockingly wealthy to join us in this great adventure.

The equipment needed for hang gliding is minimal by aviation standards. The principle items being the glider, also called the wing, and the harness. The rest of the equipment consists mainly of safety and communication gear. Preparation and proper training go a long way towards a pilot's well being as well as enjoyment. Part of preparation is knowing what weather conditions you will experience during the flying.

 


Motor-hang gliding / Microlights

There are two kinds of powered hang gliders. One that takes off and lands on wheels - classified as microlights and the other is the foot-launched version. Both are powered by a small 2-stroke engine. The motor-hang gliding, offers the pilot the ability to take off from a relatively small, flat field and climb away to find the lifting thermals that all glider pilots rely on to make cross-country flights.

These devices are heavier and more cumbersome compared to the paramotoring, but they offer something extra for the keen hang glider pilot. Like the paramotor, the engine can be detached and the glider used to soar without power; this flexibility is in itself an attraction, as is the leisurely flying speed.

Although their main appeal at the present time is undoubtedly to the already experienced hang glider buff, interest in these machines is growing rapidly, particularly in areas where there are no hills. To learn to fly one you'll need to first learn to fly a hang glider, and the same degree of background knowledge of airlaw, flight theory, meteorology, etc.

It normally takes between five to eight flying days to learn how to fly on a motor-hang glider. Your instructor will show you how to rig and inspect the glider before you have your first short flight. First flights in tow training are conducted using a very gentle winch pull, keeping you close to the ground. For the first day or two the glider will be restrained by tether ropes until you become adept at steering and controlling airspeed by moving your weight. You'll then graduate to higher and longer flights, and when the weather's not so good retire to the classroom to learn basic flight theory, meteorology and air law.

You can choose your tour duration, training and flight program and places to fly, according to your budget, time availability and skills. Everything on your paragliding tour can be customized.

If you feel like one of these people keen to to discover new horizons, then you are at the right place. Please, feel free to contact us for any kind of information and arrangements:
