BEFORE FLYING

FOR TANDEM PASSENGERS

YOUR SCHEDULE

  1. FREE YOUR DAY
    Our flights usually start from 10 AM until 4 PM. Because weather is unpredictable, it is important that you free your schedule for the whole day. Due to real time changes of wind direction and condition, your flight may be moved earlier or later than the estimated time.
  2. YOUR TIME SLOT
    A day before your flight, we will create a Facebook group chat to inform you of your estimated time slot.

  3. STAY UP LATE
    Sleeping late the night before your flight will make you easily dizzy.

WHAT TO EXPECT

WAIVER

We will do everything in our control to make your flight a safe and enjoyable one. However, these are the unavoidable facts of tandem paragliding:

  1. Your pilot is a human being who is capable of making mistakes.
  2. Your equipment is made by human beings and therefore is not perfect and can malfunction.
  3. We do not guarantee that your pilot or your equipment will perform flawlessly. You may get hurt or severely injured even if we and you do everything correctly.

Very important: Please read this waiver.

A hardcopy will be given to you to sign at the take-off area.
