"once you're up there, you don't want to go down" that was what one of the paragliders answered when we asked him about the experience.just when majority of the balloons took flight, these paragliders immediately took the scene coming from all directions. they fly over the crowd and goes up again.this is not the ordinary paragliding as they have with them propellers that can bring them up and control their direction. this is called powered paragliding or sometimes also known as paramotoring.most of the paragaliders were foreigners though i noticed one from the Philippines too because of the flag attached to one of the paraglider wing. we had the chance to approach some of the paragliders who dropped close to where we were standing. we met one from Malaysia and this guy who allowed us to take a shot of his propeller.
during the event, there were around five paragliders roaming the airspace of the Clark Aviation area. they did fly drops and even pass over and under some of the balloons.flying one powered paraglider is now on my list of things to do before i die.here's a video i found in youtube taken from the 14th Hot Air Balloon in Clark last weekend. thanks to Sir Simon Paul Herbert for posting this video in youtube.
