Free download to the best paragliding and hang gliding sites in the world.
Cross Country magazine’s Global Travel Guide for hang gliding and paragliding is now available online as a free pdf download – perfect for the iPad, your laptop or printing off.
Published in April 2010 the print edition of the guide was given away free exclusively to subscribers of Cross Country Magazine magazine in issue 130. Now it’s available to all.
The guide features some 20 paragliding and hang gliding sites around the world, and draws on the experience of the best pilots around to provide a mouth-watering insight into some of the best sites on the planet.
The idea was to create a guide to ‘the perfect year’. We imagined a pilot who had a year off, unlimited funds, and an open ticket. Where would they go? What would they do? What sort of flying would they get? The result it this, what we hope you agree is an inspirational and information-packed guide.
World famous sites from around the globe are included – from the Alps to the Australian desert and from the Spanish flats to the outback of Brazil. Contributors include well-known flying guides like Jocky Sanderson, Steve Ham and Godfrey Wenness, as well as the best flying photographers and writers.
