A paragliding club has received the permission to fly their paragliders in the south-central province of Khanh Hoa from now to the end of this year, just in time to be able to attend a beach festival to take place at the provincial resort city of Nha Trang next month.

The Nha Trang Paragliding Club is now allowed to take flight at four different locations in Khanh Hoa, two each in Nha Trang and Vinh Khanh District, between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, from April 1 to December 31, Vietnam’s Ministry of Defense announced on Tuesday.

This means members of the club will be able to showcase their performances during the Nha Trang Beach Festival - Khanh Hoa 2019, which will take place from May 10 to 13.

First held in 2003, the Nha Trang Beach Festival - Khanh Hoa is organized every two years with an aim to attract more tourists to the locality.

This year’s festival will provide visitors with nearly 50 art, physical-sport, trade and symposium activities.

Founded in 2015, the Nha Trang Paragliding Club is only allowed to fly at destinations approved by the defense ministry’s Department of Operations.

Besides the four destinations in Khanh Hoa, the club is also permitted to paraglide at the Hon Hong Mountain in the south-central province of Binh Thuan.
