Be part of it!

Paragliding is not just a sport or activity. It is a lifestyle which defines who you are, how you think and where you belong. It is a close connection between you, the wild nature, mountains and animals. And it is natural that you don’t only think about it in your free time, but philosophise about it 24/7. And sooner or later passion like this would start organizing your spare time on this planet completely.

You certainly can remember your very first flight, the drama of your feet leaving the ground, holding your breath as the earth wrenchingly dropped away from you. You never forget that first moment, to see earth opening up underneath and delivering you to a new world of freedom. Following months you’ve learned to fly more efficiently, utilising the best part of the day for thermal development, making fast decisions to assess conditions for the day soon after leaving take off and flying away in the first thermal of the day. It is the passion to stay airborne and do the right things to fly longer, faster, higher and further. We love nature, mountains and motivating people in flying. We like to see people improving their skills.

That’s what we do. This is free flying. This is Axis.

We are looking forward to meeting you!

‘’I am addicted to flying’’

Since 16 years of age Renata has been dividing her life between the air and the ground. She sneaked in to this world when she started the police academy. She did not want to become a policewoman, Renata wanted to do a parachute jump, which was the part of the course. ‘’Because of my age, I had to wait one year to go through the course.’’ But she couldn’t wait. Her friends introduced her to her life passion – paragliding. She graduated on FTK UP in Olomouc.

Accidentally she started to compete in paragliding and since that time she cannot stop it. She takes it as an adventure, the same as the other adrenaline sports.

Renata speaks English.

Her toy: Axis Mercury
