There is no height limit, but the your weight needs to be between 20-110 kilograms.
How long is the flight?
Typical instructional tandem flights are 10-20 minutes.
What if the training needs to be cancelled?
If the instructional tandem flight needs to be cancelled due to strong wind or rain, then you will be informed two days prior to your scheduled date via email. Please be sure to check for this. We are always keeping a close watch on the forecast, however, cancellations do happen. We can reschedule, or you can choose to receive a full refund of your deposit within 2-3 business days.
What is the best season to fly?
We fly all year. Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter are all great times to fly.
What is the age limit?
There is no age limit. Anyone with an interest in paragliding with us can fly. If you are under the age of 18, we will need consent from a parent or guardian.
Is paragliding dangerous?
Statistically paragliding is no more dangerous than driving a car. All pilots have many years of flying experience and will be teaching guests the basics of paragliding.
Do I need to purchase special insurance?
All guests will need to sign a waiver before the flight. If guests want special paragliding insurance, they should find such insurance in their home country.
Should I bring my camera?
Sure why not? More photos to enjoy the experience would be great, but for safety reasons, you can not take photos or video during the flight. Your instructional pilot will have a GoPro camera for the flight. An analysis and copy of the video will be given to guests at the end of the day.
What is the cancellation policy?
If the instructional tandem course is cancelled due to weather, then you will receive a full refund within 2-3 business days. If you want to cancel after already making a reservation with us, then you must do so within 72 hours of your scheduled course to receive a full refund. This allows us to schedule other guests in your place. If you cancel with less than 72 hours, or simply do not show up, you will receive no refund.
How important is the weather?
The weather is very important to paragliding. Safety is the first priority, so we will be checking the weather regularly. We will notify customers at least 2 days prior to the scheduled flight if cancellations need to be made.
