Tandem Paragliding Experience - South Wales


Paragliding Course Description

Tandem paragliding experience

This is a great way to experience the thrill of free flight.   Take a flight with one of our experienced instructors over the beautiful valleys of South Wales.

Depending on the flying site we are using you may have a short walk to the launch point.  You will then be given a simple safety briefing before being fitted with your harness and helmet.  After a couple of trial launch runs to familiarise you with the take-off technique you will be ready to fly!  You will take a few steps and launch into the sky on your paragliding experience flight.  

We are a paragliding training school and the flight is conducted as a trial lesson, so you will learn about finding lifting air to soar, how the controls work and if conditions are suitable and (if you want to) you may well have the chance to take the controls yourself and try your hand as a pilot.

We will take a photo or two of you to keep and you can of course take a camera up with you, though it is important this has a safety line to your harness as we do not want to drop anything.

The flight phase usually lasts between 10 and 20 minutes and depending on the conditions we may either land back at the take-off-point on top of the hill or in a landing field at the bottom.  We then need to spend a couple of minutes packing the paraglider ready for the next contestant!

Typically the whole experience from briefing and preparation to packing up takes around two hours. We therefore will give you a “slot” of morning, afternoon or evening.

The Tandem experience is available any day of the year, 7 days a week, but is very dependent on suitable weather conditions.

                                                                                    The small print :

Third Party Insurance  You must join the British Hang-gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) for the day, for 3rd party insurance purposes. This costs £17 per person.  It will be arranged on the day and is now included in the cost of the experience.

Who can do it?  The tandem paragliding experience  has no upper or lower age limit, but you must weigh at least 35 Kg and no more than 100 Kgs.  You must also be in reasonable health and fit enough to be able to walk over rough ground and to run hard for a few steps.

What do I need to bring?  You need to be dressed appropriately to be out on the hills for a couple of hours, depending on the weather.  Boots or shoes with ankle support are essential and gloves are a good idea.  A bottle of water and sun cream are also a good idea in summer.

What about bad weather? Paragliding is very weather dependent and for safety reasons we will only fly when conditions are suitable.  We will make a final decision on whether the flight is to go ahead the day before after checking the weather forecast and will then notify you by email or text.  Sometimes the weather will vary during the day and we may recommend you come early or later in the day. If we do get it wrong and call you out then find the conditions are no good, we will reschedule your experience at no extra charge.
