About the Paragliding in Dubai:
Paragliding is a recreational and competitive sport that involves flying a lightweight, foot-launched glider. It is often compared to flying like a bird, as pilots can soar for hours at a time using only the natural lift of the air. This adventure sport is a form of free flight, which means that the pilot is not attached to a motor or other propulsion system. Instead, the glider is launched by running off a hill or cliff, or by using a tow from a vehicle or winch. The harness of the paraglide is attached to the pilot’s body using suspension lines and controlled by shifting the body weight and manipulating the wing’s brake lines.
No, you do not necessarily need the experience to go paragliding in Dubai. Your pilot instructor will do all the hard work involved in the paragliding activity. All you need to do is run on take-off and then sit back and relax to enjoy the gorgeous views of the surroundings. On the contrary, if you are flying solo, you will need to complete a training course to obtain a paragliding license. This training typically involves ground school instruction on equipment, meteorology, and flight theory, as well as hands-on flying lessons under the guidance of a certified instructor.
When practiced with proper training, equipment, and weather conditions, paragliding is a relatively safe activity. But, as with any other adventure sport, there is a certain level of risk involved. Hence, it is important to choose a reputable paragliding company that employs certified and experienced instructors, and that follows local regulations and safety standards. You must also maintain situational awareness and be prepared to react quickly to changing conditions or emergencies.
Yes, there are age and weight restrictions for paragliding in Dubai. The minimum age to go paragliding is six years. If you are below 18 years of age, you need to have a parent or guardian’s signature as your liability waiver. As far as the weight for paragliding is concerned, the ideal weight ranges between 40 to 120 kilograms per rider. If you indulge in the activity with two or three other people, the maximum combined weight should not exceed 240 kilograms.
The cost of paragliding in Dubai generally ranges between AED 800 to AED 1000 per person for 60 minutes. This cost depends on a number of factors, like the location, duration of the flight, and the paragliding operator. It is also inclusive of the entire experience and the cost of equipment and safety precautions undertaken while paragliding.
The best months for paragliding in Dubai are between October and April when the place enjoys the winter season. During this time, the weather is cool and stable, with clear blue skies and low humidity levels. The wind conditions also range from light to moderate and are less turbulent and easy to handle, making it favorable for paragliding activities.
Yes, you can take photos or videos during your paragliding flight in Dubai, either using your own camera or the equipment provided by the paragliding operator. However, it is advisable to check with the operator if there are any specific guidelines or restrictions on photography and filming. It may happen if your camera or mobile phone is obstructing the safety protocols of the flight or causing a disturbance while in the air. In some cases, there are operators that provide a professional photographer or videographer who can capture your flight and provide you with high-quality photos or a video of your experience.
