Dominican paragliding records

Along the years, the small flying community in the Dominican Republic has been trying out the island's potential for XC flying. After opening many takeoffs, experimenting on various XC routes, and after presenting this new world-class paragliding destination to the world-wide community trough various competitions and international events, we are now able to show you our sporting achievements: our National Paragliding Records.
