Frequently asked questions about tandem paragliding

There is really no age limit, but if you are underage you will need your legal guardians signature. The weight limit is 130 kg. You need to be fit enough to be able to do some light running for about 20 meters.
Previous experience?
You need no previous experience with flying to join us in the air. You will be instructed about everything you need to know before takeoff.
Flight durations?
The minimum we can promise you is 15 minutes. That is the time we need to get from takeoff to the landing in 0 wind. If we have nice conditions, we can stay in the air for a long time, as long as 45 minutes. We find that the perfect length of the flight is somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes since all the new sensations and feelings can be a bit overwhelming for some.
I suffer from vertigo, is it for me?

Surprisingly, once we are in the air, most people feel relaxed and don’t suffer from vertigo.

Is it scary?
Most of our clients fill excitement on the launch – normal for somebody about to run into the unknown. But once we are in the air and you see that the launch was easy and that the ride is quite smooth 99% of people feel very relaxed. If we have enough altitude over the landing, we are happy to do some manoeuvres that will pump up the adrenaline.

What to wear?
Most important are good hiking shoes. Wear comfortable clothes.

Meeting points?
We usually meet at the bottom of Kanin ski resort or at the landings.

If the weather is adverse?
It may happen that your trip will have to be rescheduled. If you are staying around Bovec area for a few days and plan multiple activities we advise you to do paragliding at the beginning of your stay, since paragliding is most dependent on the weather.

Instructor Qualifications?

All of our pilots are certified pilots with years of experience and top level equipement.

When do I pay?
You can pay via bank transfer or in cash on the day of flight.

What if I have to cancel?
We understand that you cannot predict every event in your life. In case of cancellation please contact us as soon as possible.

Can I bring my own camera?
You are welcome to bring your own camera or phone and take pictures in the air. The ride is smooth enough to handle the equipment with no problem. You are responsible for all losses or damage to your devices.

Can non-flying friends watch the takeoff & landing?
The landings are easily accessible and offer you a nice view of the end of our flight. You can also join us on the takeoff, but you need to have your own transportation or buy your own gondola ticket. Usually, you cannot come from the takeoff to the landing fast enough to capture both, so you have to pick one.
