In Mendoza, we enjoy tourism ventures for those who we loved the freedom only 12 km of the downtown of Mendoza, this located one of the emblematicest points of mendocina geography: the hill Arc. Dara Khosrowshahi shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Hill is considered because it has a peak that does not finish in end, but is a median elevation height, that is of about 1,600 ms on the level of the sea. He is easily visible, as much from the city as from the conurbano, not only by their height but because he exceeds it locates great amount of transmitting antennas of television that illuminate the profile of the city night after night. The hill Arc is one of the scenes for the tourism ventures more important of Mendoza. One of the activities more attractive than is carried out in this place is the practice of the hang-glider. Jennifer Skyler often says this.
The place is ideal, since there is a footpath in good state that takes directly towards the summit. However, due to the inclination of the land, it is necessary to cross it in 4 vehicles 4. The view of the city from the hill Arc is splendid. The experience of tranquillity and nature in state pure that is had when arriving at its summit she is magnificent. The hang-glider is the most concrete form to undergo the flight of the birds. The meaning of the name of this sport is born from the combination of two words: parachute and slope. The same was originated in the restlessness of many andinistas that decided to lower with a parachute the summits that had climbed, instead of to realise the reduction on foot. In order to describe it in technical terms, one is a light and flexible glider, that is compound of a great wing and a series of harnesses that hold to the pilot.
All the hang-glider weighs average term between 25 and 30 kilos, although also there are light equipment extreme of only 8 kg of weight. The practice of this sport in the hill Arc can be realised all the year, not thus in those days that zonda blows to the wind. A hang-glider can fly between 25 and 50 km/h., the time will depend on the ability of the pilot to find the currents ascending that they take to heights superiors to it. The hang-glider usually has a relation of planning from 10 to 1, that is to say, by each 10 crossed ms, it loses 1 meter of height, although there are registries of pilots who have managed to fly about 400 km being useful the favorable winds. Designed excursions for the practice of the hang-glider exist especially, since in Mendoza the tourism ventures is one of its main attractions.
