Greetings from iParaglide,
A lot of paragliding pilots, fledglings and their friends have been contacting us about this spectacular video. It has been very enthusiastically received but the common comment is:
"I don't speak German...what is the paragliding pilot saying in the video?"
We contacted our friend Xandi Meschuh to get the story. Here is the English translation:
"Springtime in my hometown is a really special thing. I like the warming sun, when it is heating up the south ridges, and gazing at the clouds you can see how the thermals arise.
And there are no words for the feeling to get airborne after a long cold winter, to feel the thermals.......
On the one hand, one of the most special feelings is to fly free with your own wing, and on the other hand, this feeling is much more intense, if you are together with a friend up there. In this case, together with a 2.5 meter wingspan Eurasian Griffon: it is simply amazing..."
Be sure to expand the video to full screen as it's in HD. Enjoy inspired paragliding flight with raptors...
