PARAGLIDING EXPERIENCE FLIGHTS
Here is some information about your paragliding experience flight. If there is anything else you would like to know before you come flying with us, please feel free to pick up the phone or email.
How to book
For air experience flights simply call us on 01793 790183.
What we fly
With a tandem paraglider flight we fly using a special harness with the instructor behind you.
Our tandem gliders are exactly the same as a solo glider but slightly larger to accommodate the weight of two people. The techniques and sensations are exactly the same.
We are based at Redlands Airfield near Swindon but our paragliding flights occur at a variety of locations in Wiltshire, Berkshire and Hampshire. We choose the most suitable site according to the wind and weather on the day of your flight and will inform you where and when to meet the day before you fly.
Before you set out
Please check your email and voicemail in case the expected conditions have changed and we need to postpone your flight.
What to expect
Because the conditions change throughout the day you need to allow a whole day for your experience. If you have a tandem flight you will fly for between 30 and 45 minutes. A tandem taster flight is slightly different in that you will get an insight into the sport of paragliding; your flight will last for about 1 hour and you’ll have the opportunity to take the controls of the glider for yourself. The tandem taster is ideal for anyone interested in taking up paragliding.
What to bring
Clothing suitable for spending time outside and in the cold: sturdy footware, long trousers, a warm long sleeved top and a pair of gloves. Please feel free to bring a camera. Because we might be outside for some time please remember to bring a packed lunch and something to drink Anything else you might need; helmets etc. we supply here. PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO BRING THE VOUCHER WITH YOU!
Paragliding is very weather dependant. We ask you to book several dates for your flight as it is entirely possible that the British weather won’t give us the right conditions at the first attempt. You have a whole year in which to fly and believe it or not the winter gives us some spectacular flying days.
If, after your flight, you would like to take up paragliding as a hobby, talk to your instructor about how to progress and how to gain your Club Pilots rating. It’s easier and cheaper than most people think, and it’s incredibly good fun.
