YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 1 day, with approx. 1 hour spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
Paragliding is the purest form of flight available to us. The wing weighs just a few kilos and is easily portable. With a steady breeze blowing up a cliff you can soar all day in perfect relaxation. If adventure is your thing you can climb up thousands of feet in thermals and then glide for many miles. If adrenaline is your thing you can learn to throw your paraglider around to do some of the most dynamic aerobatics imaginable. Dont miss this once in a life time experience!
The day will include:
* Introduction to the sport and paperwork
* Discussion of the risks involved in paragliding
* Basic theory of paragliding aerodynamics and local airflow
* Daily canopy and equipment checks
* How to keep yourself safe
* Pre-flight checks
* Canopy inflation and control on the ground
* Low flights on shallower slopes (known as 'hops')
* A higher flight from main slope if time, your energy levels and rate of progress allow
You need to be at least 16 years of age though you can take a Taster Day at 14 or 15 provided your parent or guardian is present. You don't need to be exceptionally fit or strong. You do however need to be able to run fast for short bursts when necessary and most importantly walk back up the slope carrying your equipment many times over. Maximum Weight is 20 stone.
