Flight Associations

UP! Untangle Paragliding project aimed to elevate participation in paragliding by initiating a comprehensive awareness campaign across four countries. Through the organization of eight Paragliding Open Weeks, the project successfully engaged more than 1000 individuals unfamiliar with paragliding, offering them the chance to delve into the basics and experience the thrill of flying.

This initiative not only heightened awareness and interest in paragliding but also fostered a platform for sharing expertise among project partners. Collaboratively, they distilled best practices and insights into a comprehensive guide on orchestrating and executing Paragliding Open Weeks, facilitating future endeavors in promoting the sport.

The project’s overarching objective was to broaden the understanding and allure of paragliding, culminating in an increased participation rate and a knowledge-sharing framework that could sustain and proliferate interest in paragliding across diverse communities.
