Paragliding Tandem Flight with Pictures & Videos

Cape Town

Activity Description

Tandem paragliding flights involve a candidate students being securely strapped into a comfortable flying harness positioned in front of the pilot and connected to the pilot and the glider. The tandem glider is specially designed to carry two people and is nearly twice the size of a regular solo paraglider.
We fly anyone… kids from 3 years old (min 20kg), disabled, blind, deaf, and upto 135 kg’s.
Stef has even flown a 92 year old lady!

Listen to the simple instructions given and enjoy the flight!
Take off’s are really easy and landings are usually really soft, on a beautiful grass area.

This is why paragliding with ParaPax is …." THE SECOND BEST THING YOU’LL EVER DO "
No matter how nervous you might feel before takeoff (or for some, even the very thought of paragliding), our team will put you at ease. You will welcomed, signed up, briefed on the launch, securely clipped in and it’s generally a few light steps and we are flying! We even have strong men to assist with the launch. With a very experienced pilot behind you, you will feel just great! Paragliding is the most amazing feeling. Once in the air, most people are surprised that they feel so relaxed. You sit comfortably upright (like in your sofa at home). There is no feeling of sinking or falling at all, since we glide, nearly horizontally, through the air at around 40 km/hr. Conditions allowing, we offer you the chance to fly the paraglider yourself once we are in the air. We place our hands above yours to show you how. It really is quite simple and really, really enjoyable! This, like the aerobatics before landing, are completely optional of course! The reason for our popularity is the fact that every flight is different and we tailor-make the flight relative to your wishes. Some of you may be nervous, while others are confident.

Our flight planning is 100% weather dependent and we have become experts at judging weather. Our pilots study 6 – 12 different wind and weather websites every morning, for a full accurate weather assessment. This means there is no time wasting or unnecessary delays. Trust us and we will give you a safe experience to remember forever! If we reschedule or ask you to come a little later, it’s for a good reason.
