June 13, 2019 - The third Paragliding Day will be held on Saturday, 15 June, in Herceg Novi's hinterland. The organizers of this popular event are the Paragliding Alliance of Montenegro and the Herceg Novi Paragliding Club Adriafly, with the support of the Tourism Organization and the Municipality of Herceg Novi, the Agency for Development and Protection of Ornas, and the help of the "Subra" Skating Club, according to the Herceg Novi Municipal Information Service.
"As a promotional event, with solo pilots, tandem pilots will be present in a large number, so on this occasion part of those who want to enjoy the magic of paragliding safely can fly with experienced pilots.
Applications can be made by phone/Viber (Development and Protection Agency of Orjen): 067 933-993 by Friday, 14 June, at 5 pm. The number of participants is limited. The gathering is scheduled to take place on the "Dizdarica" hillside, above the village of Žlijebi, at 10 am, when an introductory briefing will take place, and then the flights (if the weather conditions are favorable) will begin, aiming for a secured space in Kutsko Polje.
The "Dizdarica" pole is the first registered landfill in Montenegro and is located in a beautiful ambiance on the hinterland of Herceg Novi, at 900 m above sea level. Its construction began in 2010 with volunteer work and personal assets of members of the Adriafly Club. Although one of its parts is located in the Tivat Airport, as a serious and responsible club, Adriafly has gained the trust of the Montenegrin Civil Aviation Agency and Airport Flight Control in Tivat, so the check-in was registered in 2011. The club had already been the host of the Montenegrin state championships in paragliding. During the next years, he was flipped several times and further improved. Reporter of the world's most famous magazine "Parapente Mag," in the 41st issue of this magazine, described Dizdarica as the best on the Adriatic, with the statement that in Montenegro the paragliding started forward, they say from the Paragliding club Adriafly.
Due to favorable climate conditions, well-maintained and registered terrain, easy transport and high altitude, this hiking trail attracts more and more fans of paragliding and those who want to explore the flight. The usual trip lasts 20 minutes, but in ideal conditions, it can be extended up to 5 hours. That is why it is not surprising that paragliding lovers come from far away areas to fly here.
