Tandem Paragliding Flights
Whether you want to experience the sensation of flight with the minimal amount of effort or you are not confident enough to fly solo as pilot in command. A Tandem Experience Flight with one of our highly experienced, fully qualified and insured pilots is a perfect way to experience the feeling of flying silently like a bird above the beautiful North Downs.
No prior experience is needed and with minimal instructions we can get you airborne and flying one of our private flying sites or being towed high above our winching field to heights of up to 800ft. Our instructor and tandem pilot will launch, fly and land so all you have to do is enjoy the views from a birds eye perspective.
All of our pilots are fully BHPA qualified and insured to fly members of the public who otherwise would never be able to experience such a freeing feeling of flight. Imagine being sat high above the ground flying with the birds with only the wind rushing past your face to be heard.
A Tandem Experience Flight is a once in a lifetime experience that very few people ever get to experience so treat yourself today or book a flight as a gift. The experience is truly mind blowing and will never be forgotten but be warned, our sport is addictive so it may lead to you signing up for a full course!
What to expect on the day
On the day expect to have a lot of fun and a great adventure day out leading to you flying tandem with one of highly skilled and experienced tandem pilots.
Our Tandem Experience Flights are social events so we encourage you to bring your family and friends to watch the experience and cheer you on from the side-lines.
We normally start in the morning with a meeting and briefing at our head office where we will sign you up as day members of the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association who are the governing body of our sports within the UK. The BHPA have been training and assessing tandem pilots for over 30 years with only the best pilots making it through their vigorous assessment process.
Before you fly you will be introduced to all of the equipment, shown how it works and how it keeps you safe in the air. You will be briefed about the experience, we will explain what we expect from you at each stage and we will practice some launch runs so you are completely ready for you flight. When it is time to fly, your tandem pilot will get the equipment ready, connect you up and gracefully get you airborne. At the end of your flight the tandem pilot will gently land the paraglider and have a short debrief about the experience and how you should you wish to train to fly solo.
Our only aim of the day is get you safely into the air and make sure you have a wonderful experience whilst with us. Your safety and happiness is paramount in our decision making process and we will only fly you when it safe to do and when you will get a once in a lifetime experience.
A tandem paragliding flight is a perfect way to get airborne without the need of any in-depth training. It is a great idea if you are thinking about learning how to fly but are unsure if the sport is for you or not. It is also a great gift idea for that special someone who loves adventure activities but has tried everything else.
We do warn you though, paragliding is highly addictive and lots of our tandem guests have gone on to fly solo. See our paragliding gallery to be inspir
