Tandem Paragliding Flights
The ideal alternative for those who cannot commit two days to learning is a tandem paragliding flight, which offers you the perfect opportunity to find out what paragliding is all about. No previous experience is required. We will give you a short briefing shortly before we take-off.
Driven by our passion for flying and sharing our love for the sport, Wallend-Air School of Paragliding was established in 1989, as the first flight school in South Africa. Our Tandem Flight Instructors (TFI) are highly experienced, safety-conscious pilots, that are as passionate about flying as we are, and are all certified by the South African Association of Paragliding (SAHPA).
We'd love to introduce you to the freedom of semi-weightless flight and the magic of exploring the Capes scenic beauty from the sky. Our in-flight pictures option lets you capture those unforgettable memories to add to your holiday albums and share with your friends.
Tandem Paragliding is safe and easy!!
Anyone can do it! The only limitation is weight. There is no minimum or maximum age, though children under 18 years old will need their parents' consent. Any person from 40kg-120kg can fly with us.
Ideal clothing is a pair of long pants (jeans) and a long-sleeved top (sweater or jacket). Hiking boots with ankle support are preferable, but otherwise any normal closed shoe will do.
Helmets are compulsory and will be provided.You will be seated in a comfortable flying harness, which is securely strapped so there is no chance of you falling out.
To get airborne you will need to run a few metres during launch.On landing you will stand up, and prepare to run.
During the flight you can relax and enjoy the view from your bird's-eye perspective. You can take photos while in the air and your pilot has a Go Pro or similar camera to take photos (optional). Pure simplicity and freedom is the true beauty of paragliding. Within minutes, you and the glider can be ready and in the air.
It is a truly awesome and unique experience!
