This should go without saying, but… Don’t try this on your own!
Our Video of the Week spot is not intended as an advertisement or endorsement for paragliding classes, but if you’re seriously interested, give the Ottawa Paragliding School a call. If you know of any other locally-based instructors, please drop their contact info in the comments below.
The audio is rough, but this is a great view from the Gatineau Hills. If you skip to the end of the video, you’ll also see the glider’s landing from an alternate camera angle on the ground.
