Surely, looking at them flying up so lightly, you thought at least once you would like to experience the same emotion. But you still have some doubts though, don't you? Don't worry, below you will find all the answers to your questions and you will immediately want to take off!
How does it work?
After the glider has been laid on the ground in the most suitable manner, the pilot prepares his harness and that of the passenger for a safe flight. After a brief explanation, the tour starts with a small race, to which the passenger must also contribute and you will find yourself in a moment in flight embracing the wind as if you were comfortably seated in an armchair.
Is the paraglider similar to a parachute?
This is not a dip in the air, but a real take-off that is made from a slope, of course after checking the regular opening of the wing. The paraglider is a wing made of special fabric and is in fact a half-flier, like an airplane, a glider or a hang glider. The parachute, on the other hand, is a fabric shell that once opened serves to limit the free fall downwards!
Is flying a paraglider an extreme sport?
Paragliding is not at all dangerous or extreme when approached in the right way. The flight is carried out in pairs with a two-seater paraglider, the pilot always carefully evaluates the weather conditions and is equipped with experience and equipment suitable for having fun in total safety!
Can I take videos or photos in the air?
Certainly! By tying the camera or phone so that it does not fall. All our pilots are however equipped with full HD action cameras and eventually, upon request, will deliver you the video of the entire flight on an SD card.
Can the passenger fly the tandem paraglider?
Of course, when weather conditions are suitable during the flight, the pilot will be happy to let the passenger experience the emotion of driving!
Where will the two-seater paraglider flight take place?
The take-off will take place at Ca Del Monte in Cecima (Pavia) - beautiful hilly location of Oltrepò Pavese.
How long does a flight last?
A tandem paragliding flight can take 10 to 20 minutes. The duration depends on the location, time, season and weather conditions of the day.
Now it's up to you, launch yourself into this adventure and fly over the beautiful hills of Oltrepò Pavese.
