In this case, an experienced pilot will fly the paraglider, and tourists will only have to enjoy the free flight and admire the beautiful views of the Armenian Highlands. Flight preparation takes only 5 minutes. The passenger is put on a suspension system and is given an introductory briefing. The only function of the passenger is to stay on his feet during the start. Then you need to run a little while taking off, after which you will be overcome by a feeling of weightlessness. The most interesting and convenient places for flights are Aparan, Vedi, Mount Aragats.
