Before the flight ...
Why that kind of the plane for the scenic flights?
Generaly - becouse there is nothing else better:
- versus the plane - much better, unconstrained view in every direction including down - vertical one.
- contrary to paraglider it is turbulence resistant, much faster, comfortable and far more nonhazardous
- in contrast to baloon it may flights in any direction, and it's range is over 600km!
- it may land by gliding, without the engine, even on small patch of grass
- when it is required, it may fly really slow (about 60km/h) - perfect for a scenic flights
