Tandem Paragliding Intro Flight Voucher

Cape Town

Activity Description

Take a fun flight with an experienced tandem pilot with Table Mountain as your background as you make your way down to the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. This no-pressure fun experience is the easiest introduction into the world of free flight. You will learn about pre-flight checks, turns, landing approaches and more. Our goal with every flight is to provide you with a safe fun learning experience leaving you with a taster of what paragliding has to offer. Who knows, this might just be the first step into you getting your pilots license, Captain.

WeatherParagliding is a weather-dependent activity. High-speed winds, poor visibility, rain and low clouds, are just some of the reasons that can delay, or even cancel our operations. In case of bad weather, our team will announce a “standby”, which means we have to put our operations on hold. Regular announcements will be made updating you on the conditions while you wait at our locations. If the weather shows no signs of improving and we have to cancel operations and you cannot reschedule for the next available date, you will receive a full refund. We are not liable for any costs (travel, stay, etc.) incurred by the individual in the instances mentioned above. If you are a visitor, we recommend that you join us at the beginning of your travels so that we have the option to reschedule your flight if the weather doesn’t play along.
What to WearComfortable closed running shoes, sunglasses and a hat. A jacket is a good idea on cold or cloudy days
Things to BringA facemask as per standard Covid 19 protocol. Proof of purchase (email copy on your mobile phone is sufficient). Drinks and/or snacks (no alcohol to be consumed prior to flight). Make the most out of your time on the mountain.
Guests or Spectators* Customers under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be allowed to on this course. * Guests or Spectators are more than welcome to come with on the day of the flight.
