About Paragliding

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.

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.
