Looking for someone experienced to accompany you on one or more of your flights? If so, tandems are for you!
An Instructional Tandem Flight is a very efficient way to learn to paraglide, or merely just experience the joys of paragliding while an experienced instructor handles the details of flying. You sit comfortably in your harness in front of the instructor, who flies the tandem glider. And, if you wish, and conditions permit, you can then learn to maneuver the glider under the instructor’s supervision.
Paragliding tandem flights has helped tourists view the epic splendor of the Catskills mountain ranges, experiencing the cold and novelty in the atmosphere. The beautiful green forest and bright sunshine give you the invigorating sensation of flying like a bird, void of stress and anxiety.
Tandem flying involves a pilot flying with a passenger. Both have separate harnesses that are attached to each other and to the wing. They are built for comfort and safety, and they feel like an armchair in flight. Once launched the passenger just sits back, relaxes and takes in the epic scenery.
You can ask your pilot to do all the hard work for you and snap off a round of quality pictures & high definition movies with a GoPro camera. All our pilots use GoPro Hero4cameras and, if proper conditions apply, a minimum of 30 photos and 1 movie will be recorded so you can remember this amazing experience for a lifetime!
All of our pilots have over THOUSANDS of flight of experience who are licensed instructors from USHPA.
Please do not forget to wear proper shoes and clothing that is appropriate for the sky!!
The cost of a tandem lesson is $165.
