The tandem paragliding flight is very exciting, but at the same time among the most “panoramic” and peaceful of free flights.
You can experience the feeling of flying, in absolute safety and enjoy the 360 ° panorama.
HOW IT WORKS
Paragliding is a wing for free flight, without any motor, which allows you to fly using the upward currents of hot air (thermal).
You take off running downhill from a slope that allows the sail to blow up.
During the flight, you are comfortably seated, maintaining the speed of about 40 km per hour at an altitude of at least 1000 meters.
Landing is sweet. Most of the time the landing speed is very low. If you get to the ground too quickly, just take a few running steps to slow down.
For a tandem flight, you should show up at the meeting point at the time established with the instructor.
As soon as you arrive you’ll fill the registration form in. You’ll be requested your personal data.
The instructor will give you the basic information you need to be aware of.
At this point you’ll wait patiently for the right moment to take off, wear the harness, last checks … and finally fly!
WHEN AND WHERE TO GO
Paragliding can be practiced at any time of the year.
Each season has its own charm and there is no one day with the same flight conditions as another, for this reason you’ll never get bored of flying.
There only must be suitable weather conditions, so for example it must not rain. The best time is spring, with days of slight instability, that is, with the classic white clouds (heaps) and blue skies.
