The best of paragliding acrobatics
Even on a tandem flight you can enjoy the thrill of acrobatic paragliding. Aerobatics is a paragliding art that is the subject of exceptional international competitions. The Col de la Forclaz, from where K2 Parapente's first flights take place, is a well-known site for paragliding enthusiasts and regularly hosts the world championships in acrobatic paragliding.
Here are the emblematic figures that you can discover with K2 Paragliding in Annecy:
- The wing-over: series of pendular turns
- Pitching: acceleration and braking delayed by the fall or pendulum effect
- The 360°: a turn that goes faster and faster while diving
- The roll: the rotation of the wing from right to left
- Helicopter: the wing and the pilot turn together around a vertical axis in descent.
