Paragliding is a recreational adventure sport using the lightweight, free-flying, and foot-launched gliding parachutes-like fabric wide canopy attached to a pilot’s body by a harness. Using the airstream of the wind called Thermals, paraglider pilots can stay aloft for up to 3 hours or more, climb up to 15,000 feet, and go up to hundreds of miles. Found by David Barish in the mid-1960s, paragliding has become the most accessible forms of human flight.
Riug Paragliding itself, founded in June 12th, 2017, under PT. Tritunggal Bali Angkasa, has two flying sites for paragliding in Bali: Gunung Riug Nusa Dua, best time to fly during dry season; and Melasti Cliff in Uluwatu, best time to fly during rainy season. These advantages make us possible to fly almost all year long – unless under extreme weather or conditions, we have to cancel our flights for your safety.
Started from the passion for paragliding, RIUG Paragliding was founded by three friends who are all certified as paragliding pilot and one of them is paragliding instructor. Through RIUG Paragliding, they are keen on bringing people up in the air to enjoy the excitement of flying freely while enjoying the beauty of nature. Providing Tandem Flight paragliding and paragliding course in Bali, RIUG Paragliding now has more than 10 pilots who are all certified as T2 (Tandem Pilot) with over 150 hours flying experience across the various fields and eligible to fly with passenger. Some of the pilots have even won the national paragliding championship which reinforces the skill, safety, and accuracy in flying.
Related to facilities, RIUG Paragliding excels in some aspects, including the certified equipment (glider, helmet, harness) for paragliding, spacious and comfortable lobby with hammock, speakers, and Wi-Fi, and sport shoes provided for the guests who don’t wear trainers or sneakers to fly. Guests will also get the welcome drink, insurance, 8GB Memory Card with photos and videos, and certificate.
