Awesome birthday gift – tandem paragliding trial flight with instructor including photos. A trial flight in a tandem paraglider with an instructor will give you the chance to experience a long flight above e.g. the beautiful West Coast beaches, soaring with the seagulls high above the cliff, which usually only experienced pilots will experience. This is a great way to have a taste of this exciting sport. Without any training or experience you can fly like a pro for 20-30 minutes in a tandem with a Champion instructor. You don't need to be very fit or sporty, depending on the site and conditions on the day, most propl can be accommodated. Your flight can be as wild or as tame as you would like it: Either a relaxing soaring flight along the coast, or a wild acro flight. The team has extensive experience flying with children, older and special needs passengers. Please talk to us about this option and let us know if you weigh under 50 or over 100kg.
