ZLATIBOR AREA

This is our story of Paragliding starts in the Zlatibor region

Posted by ParaglidingSerbia.Com on Friday, May 2, 2014

 

 

The first region for paragliding we wish to introduce you with is at the same time location of our headquarters, Zlatibor mountain. We have exclusively handpicked mountain Zlatibor for location of our headquarters for the fact that is the best region in Serbia that provides terrain for all the levels, from absolute beginners to experienced XC pilots. It is also very appealing to those who desire to undergo something more audacious than soaring and that is to feel the charm of thermal flight.

Training courts are named Farm, Curve willow and Army South. These ones are take-off spots for  absolute beginners. From their take-off spot instructors can easily see landing place of their trainee. These courts are useful for practicing ground handling technique as well.

Advanced training courts are specifically for experienced XC pilots and they are called Oxen, Army North and Tornik. These courts are for advanced pilots because the instructor is not able to see the landing place if he is standing at the take-off spot. Also, this area has distinct thermal activity and can be a bit troublesome for a beginner.

Wider area of Zlatibor mountain provides few more take-off spots that are also convenient for XC pilots and other more advanced trainees accompanied by their instructors. They are called Sekulica Hill, Malic and Loret. These courts provide possibility that in a very short period of time both trainee and instructor can take off. This gives opportunity for the instructor to fly alongside with his trainee and help him/her perfect thermal flying technique.

For more information regarding specific take-off spots check out our classification and individual pages for each starting point. You can also contact us via  e-mail: paragliding@paraglidingserbia.com
