Tandem flights are the easiest, fastest and safest way to experience paragliding for the first time…
If you can jog 2-3 meters, you can fly with us! After a ten minute briefing our professional tandem pilot will take you into the air for a flight that lasts from 15 – 30 minutes depending on flying conditions. The passenger (you) and the flight instructor each have their own comfortable harness. You are then connected together and finally connected to the glider. Two minutes later, you’re airborne! Once in the air your flight instructor will explain to you what he is doing and how paragliders fly. If conditions permit, you may be offered hands on control of the glider
Bring some good footwear (sneakers, running shoes), something that can give you good ankle support, as you are required to do a short run on take off.
How long am I in the air for?
Average flight time on the paraglider is about 15 mins. We rely on mother nature, so it can vary quite a bit, sometimes the flights are longer than the average, sometimes a bit shorter.
Are there any restrictions?
Yes. The minimum weight for a passenger on a paraglider is 20 kg, the maximum is 100 kg.
How do I get to the take off?
We provide transport from Ohrid to take off and back
Where is the pick up point?
We usually pick up from Cubalibre Beach Bar, but we can do pick ups from the main hotels and hostels in Ohrid.
How do I know if the trip goes ahead?
You will need to weather check with us before departure time. If we can’t fly due to the weather conditions we will try and accommodate you at another time/day.
As our activities are weather dependent, we would recommend to book your paragliding experience earlier during your stay in Ohrid rather than later. That way you have got a greater chance of flying.
Can I bring a friend to watch?
We’d love you to bring a friend along to watch as long as we have got room in the jeep. We do not charge for spectators, so it is on a space available basis.
Will I be able to fly the glider?
We certainly like to give you a go at flying the glider, as long as the conditions allow the pilot to hand over the controls to you.
