Meetup Description: Hi everyone!

Last year we had great fun doing the introductory course of Paragliding offered by Paraworld. This year I want to repeat this event. However, the only day of a week possible is on a Friday :( If you don't have much to do on a Friday evening or can escape from work for a while, why not join us!

Here is a littlebit of what you will do: you will be given a paraglide and, on the side of a small hill (about 30 - 50m high) the instructor explains you how to put it on and make the glide ready to fly. Once you have done this, you will run down the hill until the glide opens up above you, which by the time you will probably have reached the end of the hill. Once you gain more experience and confidence, you will start from a more higher altitude (you can chose) and do the same thing until you will feel that you lifted up the ground ...yes, all by yourself!.

The hill is not steep and full of grass, hence you won't hurt yourself in case you fall.
So, you can see, this is very harmless and provides you a feel of how to fly.

The best thing is that the whole course plus transportation cost (from Z?rich to the course's location) is CHF 50.-!!! To finish up the day, we will have a nice BBQ on the landing zone.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at[masked] 4480.

Hope to see you then!

Sven
