Carolina Paragliding

My First Mountain Flight

Mountain Flight No 1 - First Ever from Carolina Paragliding on Vimeo.

My first mountain flight ever! Short "sled ride" only 4 min 30 sec.

The site is Walden's Ridge in Whitwell Tennessee (a few miles NW of Chattanooga). The event was the Southern Para Pilots 2011 "Fly-in". Not a very big mountain by European standards, but there's not a lot of flying sites to choose from in the Southeastern US.
