Experience paragliding flight without having to go through the exercise required to fly solo. In a tandem flight, a qualified Tandem pilot flies with a passenger. The pilot flies a glider that is specifically designed to take the weight of two people and the pilot and the passenger have separate harnesses, attached to each other and to the wing. All that is required from the passenger is a short run at the start, after that, under the expert control of the pilot, the passenger will experience the exhilaration of flight.
The weight limit is min. 40kg and max.100kg and the minimum age is 14. Launching (take-offs) and landings require some physical input from the passenger therefore no alcohol consumption before flights is allowed and no person under the influence of alcohol will be flown. Unfortunately persons with a heart condition, obesity, epilepsy or moving disability cannot participate in the experience. You may be asked to complete a full medical declaration when you book a date.
Paragliding is always subject to weather conditions and cancellations for this reason are made with your safety in mind. Weather conditions will be assessed to determine whether its safe to fly. When the weather conditions are not ideal for flight, the flight may be postponed to a later date, but in general, they will wait until the weather improves during the day. (In paragliding circles it’s called; “Para-waiting”!) Smooth, safer flights are mostly done during early mornings up to around 10:30 or after three o’clock in the afternoons.
Once booked it is crucial that you call the venue before you leave to check if the weather conditions are suitable. Contact details will be provided upon booking.
