Daredevil toddler reaches 2000 metres in the sky on first ever paragliding flight
A daredevil toddler was strapped to her dad’s chest as she took her first paragliding flight reaching attitudes of 2000 METRES.
Little Luisa Broschart, three, clung on tight to her daddy, Mik, as she soared above Lenggries, Germany.
Luisa had been pestering her 49-year-old father ever since she was started swinging in a harness at one-year-old.
Finally, she took flight for more than 20 minutes, looking down over the rolling, green Bavarian hills.
Mik said: “Luisa absolutely loved it – the first thing she said when we landed was: “One more flight!”
“She couldn’t wait to take off.
“She’s been pestering me for the last two years but she hasn’t been big enough for the harness until now.
“I never had to force her to come flying – she always said: “Hey daddy, the weather is nice, I want to go flying.””
When the glider landed, Luisa made a beeline for her 42-year-old mum, Kristine, but not out of fear.
Most mums would be furious if you tried to take their three-year-old daughter soaring by the German Alps, but not Kristine.
She is a paragliding pilot as well and gave her blessing to Luisa’s first flight – as long as the weather was absolutely perfect.
As well as Luisa, the couples eldest daughter, five-year-old Emilia, has taken to the skies with her daddy.
Mik, who has been flying for 25 years, said: “Now Luisa has been on one flight, it’s difficult to keep her feet on the ground.
“Emilia has been up with me regularly for the last two years so I’m sure Luisa will want to catch up on her flying time over the next few years.”
