TANDEM PARAGLIDING JOY FLIGHT – COASTAL
Tandem paragliding flights are a great way to enjoy the full paragliding aerial experience, without having to first learn how to launch and control the paraglider yourself.
We fly coastal and mountain tandems at a variety of locations depending on the conditions. The smooth ocean breeze pushes on shore, and we are able to soar the cliffs and fly with birds at the edge of the ocean. Or gain heights over 3000ft of the spectacular mountain sites of nOrth Brother and Middle Brother.
How does a Tandem Flight Work
After we have gotten you to sign a your insurance documents and liability waiver, we go about getting you airborne!
To do this, we use a larger paraglider wing designed to carry the weight of two people. Each person has their own harness, and the passenger and instructor are connected together with spreader bars. The Tandem instructor sits in the back and the passenger sits in front. The instructor double checks your buckles and straps, clips you in, and we turn and wait for a nice launch cycle.
When the wind is right we build energy by running together as the wing comes overhead into the flying position. We run with the wing as we are lifted of the ground, up, up, and away! The flight will last at least twenty minutes, maybe more depending on the conditions.
We can accommodate a large group of passengers, however its much easier to do this with Coastal Tandem Flights. Group discounts available.
Tandem flight can be enjoyed by anyone under 110kgs. The minimum age is 14 years and minors need to be accompanied by an adult.

Can you give me a specific time
Unfortunately, unless your request for this falls within 24hrs of the desired day, this is just not possible. As paragliding is a totally weather dependent activity, we only have accurate weather info within a 24 hour window (with the exception of bad weather)
For tandem paraglider flights, we usually meet up at the appropriate flying site for the wind and weather conditions (or at a meeting point somewhere nearby) at a time that is mutually suitable and favourable for great winds.
We will confirm what time to meet us, where to meet and how to get there, when you phone us the evening before you are booked in for the weather check.
How log will the flight take
Given the appropriate conditions for safe flying, an ‘average’ tandem flight (including meeting, preparing, briefing and flying) takes at least 45min on the Coast and 1.5hrs for a mountain flight. This can vary considerably depending on various factors e.g. how many other people are booked in etc.
In the sunny Mid North Coast – just about everyday (with the exception of rare rainy days) is suitable for Tandem Paroling Flight. All types of aviation and outdoor activity are weather dependent, including paragliding. If the weather conditions are not suitable to fly, then unfortunately we simply cannot do so
