A 94-year-old Briton made her dream come true by paragliding in Chania.
As her daughter explained to Giorgos Kissanakis, a paragliding, paramotor and paratrike instructor, “grandmother really wanted to fly over Georgioupolis, and I decided to please her.”
The paratrike flight, which takes off like a small plane, took place at an altitude of 150 meters and lasted ten minutes. According to Mr. Kissanakis, the 94-year-old lady, who is in Chania on vacation, could not stop smiling from the overwhelming sensations.
“Everything went very well. The weather was great and we all enjoyed it. My client continued to smile throughout the flight, she looked so happy,” added an experienced instructor.
It can be said that Mr. Kissanakis has broken his record, as in the past a 90-year-old German woman flew with him over Chania on her birthday, four years ago.
