Experience free flight! Going along on an instructional tandem flight is a great way to experience this sport, while flying under the safe control of a USHPA tandem instructor. This is an experience NOT to be missed!
You will fly attached to your Tandem paragliding instructor, you will have the front seat, the best view in the house!! Your tandem paragliding instructor will explain how to fly the paraglider during the flight, and if conditions allow (and you are willing), your instructor will allow you to control the wing during portions of the flight.
This is a great way to experience this sport even if you decide not to continue with solo lessons. But if you do continue with solo lessons, a tandem flight will really give you a headstart on your learning.
Tandem paragliding does require a certain level of physical fitness. Some days, we must hike to launch. It's about a 25 minute moderate hike. Student must be able to run several steps with their instructor for launch and landing. Students must be able to follow instructor directions. Student weight and size restrictions vary by instructor, and will be discussed during booking your flight to assure you will be placed with the appropriate instructor.
