So it is getting serious with this tandem paragliding thing… Goody! Let’s get the final check-ups before we choose where to fly. Here are some common check points for you, carry on to next point if your answer is “YES”.

1.Can You Run A Few Pace?

Paragliders are foot-launched flying machines that you need to run couple of steps forward in order to complete the take-off. You don’t need to be ready for the next Olympics, just regular running for 2 or 3 seconds.

2. Can You Sit Still & Enjoy The View?

Tandem Paragliding offers a great view for its passengers since your only job is to enjoy the flight and beautiful panoramic scenery of the flight. In order to do that, skill set required: sitting. Since all flight will be performed by your professional pilot, you can enjoy the view.

3. Can You Stand Up When You Said So?

Landing with a paraglider is smooth as silk, thanks to many techniques. All you need to do is get in the position where all these have started. Stand up and land smoothly on your feet with a gentle touch.

4. Are You Ready To Change Your Life?

Being into the sky is a life changing event. Flying is not natural for humans yet it is so tempting being part of the sky. Taste of freedom and wonderful views of Mother Earth fascinates us everyday! So it should be said, it is addictive.

5. Are You Ready To Spend Some More?

As Leonardo Da Vinci said,

Once you tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return!

 

If you answered at least 3 of them as “YES”, keep on! You are perfect candidate for tandem paragliding experience!
