WHAT DOES IT COST?

A tandem flight costs from 90€ for an approximate 20 minute flight depending on weather conditions. Price includes free hotel pick-up, full insurance and all necessary equipment. We also take group bookings upon request.

HOW TO BOOK

Either online via the booking button above or by calling 0034 645470000. Paragliding is weather dependent, try not to book too close to your departure date to allow for date changes due to weather conditions.

WHO CAN DO IT

Almost everyone from 4 to 94 years old!! No experience is necessary. As long as you weigh under 110kg (18 stone) and can jog just a few steps on take off and landing, you’re fit to fly! Those under 16 years old will require written parental consent.

WHAT TO BRING

A spirit for adventure! Apart from that you’ll need a sturdy pair of shoes (no sandals) and sunscreen. Flight suits are available for cooler days as we take off from 800 meters with extra height gained depending on weather conditions.

WHAT TO EXPECT

To fly like a bird! No engines, no noise. No jumping off cliffs, no freefalling. As the wing comes up gracefully above your head, you and your pilot will magically lift off the ground in a secure, comfortable harness to safely soar and glide to a gentle landning.

WHAT IS PARAGLIDING

The unforgettable sensation of free flight. Part parachute, part glider; a paraglider is a state-of-the-art flying wing which soars through the air using wind currents and thermals to maintain or even gain height. The pilot has full control of the direction and speed of the glider.

Tenerife´s location and topography provides us with one of the worlds most reliable consistent flying conditions allowing us to fly more or less everyday all year round! The best flying conditions are however best between mid August to late April when the thermals are at there best. The islands many sites have easy take offs, good landing fields with enormous variations and giving challenges for all pilot levels, even for the most routined XC pilot.

Every day will start with a briefing regarding the days weather forecast, expected flying conditions and the intended sites that will flown for the day. Pilots wishes for areas of improvement will be discussed and individual tasks will be given throughout the day to help improve these "weak points". We take an active interest in the ability and progress amongst all the pilots in the group and will do our uttermost to help improve your pilot skills. Every day ends with a debriefing/analysis of the day it´s conditions, pilots experiences and developments etc. most often whilst enjoying a cold beer/refreshment.

Pick up

Your adventure begins

Your amazing experience with us at Airsports starts from the moment you climb on board our Mercedes Vito that will transport you safely up to take off. You will feel excitement and anxiety build up in you as the jeep winds it´s way higher and higher up the mountain side revealing breathtaking views.

You will be able to chat with our pilots and get answers to any of your thoughts or questions. Our pilots will also point out and explain any interesting observations concerning weather and flying conditions giving you a glimpse into the invisible world of free flight. A free flight pilot can after many years of experience read the invisible air flows in the same way as a surfer reads his wave or a skier his mountain.

Take off

You will now be briefed regarding take off, flight and landing procedures

Upon arrival at the take off you will now be equipped with your harness, helmet and a go pro camera that will film the flight, (a flight suit will be supplied on cooler days). You will now be briefed regarding take off, flight and landing procedures. The paraglider is now laid out and you are connected to the glider and your pilot. Your pilot will now inflate the glider, after a few quick steps you will feel yourself magically float away from the hillside, this feeling alone will stick with you for the rest of your life.

 

 

 

In the air

Your pilot will now keep a running commentary pointing out things of interest

Once airborne your pilot will help you get comfortable in your harness, you will be surprised just by the comfort and this helps you to feel secure. Your pilot will then do his best to find and utilise any thermal updrafts that are present and possibly take you high up above take off and at the same time prolonging your flight. Your pilot will keep a running commentary pointing out things of interest and also explaining how the glider is flown.

Depending upon the weather conditions you will at some stage during the flight have the opportunity (if you so wish) to take over the controls for a little while under close guidance of your pilot. Most of the flight is experienced as an almost surreal serene experience gliding silently over majestic landscapes but if you wish to spice things up a bit just ask you pilot and he´ll throw in some wild n crazy, white knuckle, high G force aerobatic manoeuvres.

 

 

 

Landing

This is the unavoidable moment when a huge silly grin appears on your face

Eventually you will glide towards the landing area (if conditions allow on the soft sands of La Caleta beach to sound of breaking Atlantic waves) touching down softly with your landing gear down (i.e your legs). This is the unavoidable moment when a huge silly grin appears on your face and it´s just impossible to look angry. You will feel an euphoria that will be with you for days. This is exactly the reason we ourselves fly.

Our biggest wish is that your experience with us gives you the inspiration to become a paraglider pilot yourself back in your homeland and be a privileged member of the paragliding family and one who masters the fine art of looking down on people.

 The La Caleta beach is our favoured landning spot purely because of the unbeatable feeling of landning on soft sand to the sound of crashing Atlantic waves. Please note that thermal conditions and a certain amount of height gain is necessary to reach La Caleta so we cannot guarantee a beach landning.

      Highlights of your flight have been photographed and filmed in HD quality    

You now have the possibility of purchasing the memory card from the Gopro camera or for a slightly higher price buy an edited DVD with your film and photos. You will now be able to relive you flight over and over again with friends and family, not to mention a Facebook entry that will definitely make your friends envious.
