When paragliding or hang-gliding, sometimes you’re flying, sometimes you’re floating. It's exciting, peaceful and a little scary all at the same time.
A tandem paraglide puts you in the capable hands of a professional paragliding pilot. It’s lets you experience the thrill of free flying without going through a lengthy learning process. There are almost no age or size limits for tandem paragliding.
You can also hang-glide in tandem. Some operators offer a choice of both hill and tow-launching techniques. A tow-launched tandem flight is generally easier, because no running is required on landing, however hill-launched flights deliver the classic hang-gliding thrill.
If you’d like to learn how to paraglide or hang-glide, there are several schools around the country.
