Experience new sensations, which will show you nature like you’ve never seen it before.

An airplane will tow the glider until it launches. You will fly in a double commanded aircraft, along with an experienced pilot. When the plane reaches the right height, the glider detaches itself and the pilot starts searching for a thermal column (a meteorological phenomenon in which the hot air rises from the ground in invisible swirling which takes the shape of a tornado, but has a significantly lower force than one). Exploiting these thermal columns, the glider will ascend in spirals, along with the current, until it reaches the clouds.

This type of flight bears the closest resemblance to how birds are flying using thermal columns, allowing them to travel larger distances (for birds such as storks) or allows them to get to a higher altitude so that they can hunt (prey birds, such as eagles).

This flight can only take place under weather conditions which allow thermal flight.

Venue: Bucharest, (the airfield is about 16 km far from downtown Bucharest)
