    Hanggliding paragliding and ultralights

    by rpsteve Written Nov 5, 2004

    If aviation is your thing a trip to Bassano is a must, a poular fling site for hangglider and paraglider pilots flying from Mounte Grappa from several take off pionts allow for all day flying over the thermal producing country side. If power is your thing a active ultralight field can be found at the base not far from the town. a few self launch sailplanes also opperate from this strip as well The people are friendly and are keen to have visiting pilots fly their skies be warned keep your eyes open as on a normal day can see quite a few pilots in the air . for those who arn't endorsed to fly several pilots offer tandem flights with both paragliders and hanggliders. an instructer is available for flights in an Italian ultralight called the flashlight at a very cheap priece and is a fantastic way to see the area. just don't fly over the villa with the black cars parked in the drive ok
