Paragliding in Dubai faqs

What is paragliding?

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.

What are some popular places to go paragliding in Dubai?

  • Jebel Jais- Located in Ras Al Khaimah, Jebel Jais is the highest mountain in the UAE, where you can experience paragliding activities. People are attracted to this place due to its thermals and strong winds that allow you to capture stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

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.

Is paragliding safe?
