One of man's oldest dreams has always been to fly and thanks to the constant progress in technological and mechanical advances, we can finally have wings. Now that we have succeeded, you absolutely cannot miss out on all the benefits it brings, from the purest adrenaline to the most unexpected physical benefits it comes with! The sky will give us unique sensations, you just have to leave your nerves on land to enjoy what will undoubtedly become one of the most beautiful moments of your life.
1. A shot of adrenaline
Of course, any air sport gives us an adrenaline rush that we can hardly match by doing any other sport. You may be travelling on an aircraft, looking silently out of the window and wanting to get off the ground as soon as possible, but when you experience flying a helicopter yourself, flying over the ground and controlling the controls personally, we assure you that you will carry this moment with you for the rest of your life.
We get an adrenaline release when we test our abilities and challenge our sense of danger with new adventures, this hormone increases our heart rate, contracts blood vessels and dilates the air ducts increasing our reactivity, having these reactions from time to time, gives us the opportunity to know and test our limits while we change our usual metabolism.
2. You will forget about all your worries
The hustle and bustle and daily stress often damage our health and wellbeing without us realising so, so when the body says enough, all you need is take away the worries that invade your head by taking over the skies.
We know, getting on a plane and going for a ride in the clouds is not like putting on a pair of shoes and going out jogging, but when the situation requires it, we absolutely recommend that you try an aerial sport, you will experience a rewarding and genuine experience at the same price as a dinner or a perfume. Furthermore, experts say that this is an absolutely healing way to distract yourself and free your mind, whether it is paragliding, hang-gliding, flying in a hot-air balloon or on a helicopter. You will literally find yourself in the midst of the clouds!
3. You will develop ninja-like reflexes
Air sports in general allow the body to improve physical skills that can hardly be developed in any other way, especially if we refer to skydiving, which requires us to fight against the resistance that the air exerts against our body when we are at high altitude, the movements you have to do to glide perfectly and the constant attention you have to pay during the parachute jump will make you realise that you have developed impressive reflexes in no time, so that you will be able to react in a timely and skilful way to all kinds of situations that occur in your daily life, doing sport and being able to face even real risk situations.
4. Your stress will disappear
It is true that flying over canyons with a paraglider, jumping with a parachute or flying on an ultralight aircraft will make you feel strong and under a whirlwind of different emotions, but we assure you one thing, it is also true that with parachuting or skydiving, for example, at the moment you experience the free fall, your body will receive a rush of adrenaline that, when you open the parachute, will contrast with the same invigorating calm thanks to the release of endorphins. The same thing happens with paragliding on Lake Garda
, parasailing, hang-gliding or flying a helicopter!
5. Improve your endurance
Endurance improves with the practice of air sports such as hang-gliding, paragliding, parachuting or parasailing by strengthening, thanks to the movements that are generated, various muscles of the body, which will eventually train and tone up. You will notice this mainly in the arms, due to the force required to control the equipment as well as in your legs, due to the physical exertion you make when landing.
When do we take off?
You can practice air sports at any time of the year, as long as the weather conditions allow it. While those who fear excessive adrenaline will enjoy the wonders of our beautiful peninsula, you can also feel the empowering excitement of riding on a helicopter tour or taking the controls of an aircraft yourself!
