Now who wouldn’t call this the ultimate adventure?

I’m pretty pumped over the thought of hiking to the peak somewhere, leap off and glide down the sides of the mountain.

Would time fly? Or… Would it slow down during flight?

  1. It looks super awesome, but the prerequisites also seem like a lot of work. Shall make do with tandem hang-gliding for now, when I get to Queenstown NZ this Dec.

    • To be honest, it did put me off too.

      I had been pretty keen on going through the course to qualify for solo jumps. But as you’ve pointed out, the level of commitment required is pretty high.

      Till we develop enough interest to commit I guess!

      Hiking, cycling and shooting for now πŸ˜‰ And some “low-lining” on Sunday aye.

      Does it cost much to do tandem hang gliding in NZ?

  2. About 200 NZD, I’ll let you know if it’s worth it after this Dec!

    • That sounds very inspiring. I should definitely do it if I get about planning a trip to NZ.

      Haven’t got the gold to afford it in Syd.

      Am I wrong that Da Vinci did design an aircraft or something?
