At Free Flight Academy we specialise in organising paragliding trips to new locations and Romania has been on our radar for a while. In late 2016 the Free Flight Academy team went to explore the Harghita county which is part of the Transylvania region near Iasi and having fallen in love with the area we are ran three guided weeks in 2017. Due to the feedback and popularity of the trip we are heading back in 2018!
This stunning XC playground is relatively unexplored by UK pilots but the sites we visited are suitable for both XC pros and beginners alike so it really is a location that will tick boxes for every pilot.
Local pilots think nothing of completing 80KM flights and with the terrain below providing plenty of large grassy landing options in all directions, it is an ideal place to practice thermalling or strike out for a new PB.
Our guided weeks will give you the opportunity to experience this incredible region and with two instructors and a group size of no more than seven pilots, this trip offers the perfect environment in which to sign off pilot tasks, practice key skills or just enjoy some relaxed flying.
