Until recently, I had never imagined myself soaring like a bird over one of the most beautiful Greek islands, Corfu. Paragliding was something I had always observed from afar, admiring the courage of those who dared to take the leap. It wasn't until I stumbled upon Ermis Fly Corfu that I gathered the courage to challenge my limits and take flight. What followed was a transcendent experience, providing me with a fresh perspective on life and the beautiful world around us.
Introduction: Paragliding has been a growing sport since its inception in the late 1980s. Its increasing popularity can be attributed to the exhilarating sensation of flight and the ability to view stunning landscapes from an entirely unique perspective. When I discovered Ermis Fly Corfu, a tandem paragliding outfit located on the beautiful island of Corfu, I decided to take the plunge and experience this incredible sport for myself.
The Pilot: Mr. Fanis, the pilot and owner of Ermis Fly Corfu, is an accomplished professional with an evident passion for paragliding. A member of the Hellenic Airsports Federation and the International Association of Paragliding Pilots and Instructors, he has participated in numerous Greek competitions. This extensive experience and his commitment to safety made me feel confident in his ability to provide a thrilling, yet secure, experience.
The Preparation: Upon meeting Mr. Fanis at the designated location, I was immediately struck by his friendly demeanor and genuine enthusiasm for his craft. He and his team provided clear instructions and made sure I was outfitted with the necessary equipment. After a brief explanation of the paratrike, we were soon off the ground and on our way.
The Flight: The 20-minute tandem flight was nothing short of extraordinary. Despite my initial trepidation, Mr. Fanis' calm and reassuring presence helped me feel at ease, enabling me to fully immerse myself in the experience. The best time for paragliding in Corfu is in the late afternoon when the weather is optimal, and I was fortunate to have perfect conditions for my flight. The serene glide through the air allowed me to take in the breathtaking panoramic views of the island, with its lush green landscapes, turquoise waters, and charming villages.
The Experience: One of the most striking aspects of the paragliding experience was the feeling of utter freedom. Suspended high above the ground, I felt a deep connection to the natural world, unburdened by the constraints of daily life. The sensation of weightlessness and the gentle sway of the paraglider as it caught the wind were both exhilarating and calming. Mr. Fanis regularly checked in with me throughout the flight, ensuring that I was comfortable and enjoying the ride. It was evident that his top priority was not only my safety but also my overall enjoyment of the experience.
The Aftermath: Upon landing, I was filled with a mixture of exhilaration and gratitude. The entire adventure, from the initial meeting with Mr. Fanis to the final touchdown, was a testament to the professionalism and dedication of the Ermis Fly Corfu team. The experience left me longing for more, and I have since returned to Ermis Fly Corfu for additional flights.
