Where do we fly?

FLYING SITES

Romania is indeed a beautiful country, but I guess you knew this before.. What you probably do not know is the fact that the flying sites we are proposing you for our tandem flights and for our paragliding tours are not all of them very accessible…. but for sure all are very beautiful !

Choosing one spot or another depends firstly on weather, but also on the type of flight of your choice or even of the period of the year. For example for a longer (cross country or long duration flight) we will to go to more remote places while for a basic (initiation) flight we will choose an easily accessible place where you and your friends will have to wait as little as possible !

So, have a loot at some of our our best flying sites!

Bunloc Brasov

Take off: 45°35’22” (45.5895)N; 25°39’51” (25.6642)E – Alt : 1172 m.

Landing: 45°36’18” (45.6052)N; 25°39’33” (25.6593)E – Alt : 659 m

10 minutes drive from Brasov city center you will find Bunloc, probably the most popular flying sites for tandem paragliding in Romania. We will take-off from 1200m and land at 700m. Therefore with a level difference of aprox. 500m you will admire from above the cities of Brasov and Sacele but the scenery continues with great views over Bucegi and Baiului mountains.

Best season to fly here: In general, Bunloc is the location we are using from April to October, but sometimes also in the winter.

Poiana Brasov

This flying site is more spectacular, as we will take off from 1900m from Postavaru Peak and we will land in the famous mountain resort Poiana Brasov. Although higher altitude that Bunloc, Poiana Brasov is not always usable due to stronger winds. Therefore we prefer this location for winter flights when is calmer here. So, if you are a big fan of winter sports  – why not combining then sky or snowboarding with a paragliding ride?

Best season to fly here: We prefer Postavaru for the winter. Although is a year-long usable, in the summer thermals are strong and we will use it in this period only for thermal or cross country flights.

Priseaca Stoenesti, Arges

Right in the heart of Leaota mountains, in a less touristic place, Priseaca is perfect for thermal flying! With the great help of the local micro climate we will be able to go up to the clouds and land back right on the plateau that we have used for take off, or in the valley below, in the village of Stoenesti. Priseaca is the former place of many national and international competitions. However, the flight itself will be spiced with a real off-road adventure, as we will go up to the take off place with the most picturesque off road vehicle you have ever seen. To get here, you will have to come directly to the center of Stoenesti village, Arges County, just a few km away from the city of Campulung.

Best season to fly here: All year long

Caraiman Cross Bucegi

If you are lucky enough to fly from here, you will not forget it soon! The scenery is beyond words and even the fact that you will fly over crevasse and forests at altitudes above 2200 m is a breath taking experience!

Best season to fly here: This is a special place, also due to strong valley winds in the afternoon. October and November are the best (and in some years the only) flyable period in here.
