FAQ’S TANDEM PARAGLIDING

Simply put, paragliding is a non-motorized, foot-launched form of free-flying with an inflatable lightweight wing. After the wing is inflated, the pilot takes a few steps down a slope and is lifted up in the air. The pilot then sits in a harness that is suspended from the wing by many lines. Anyone can experience paragliding by doing a tandem flight with our experienced and qualified instructor. The instructor pilot will fly with one passenger using a bigger tandem wing designed to carry two people with the passenger strapped in a separate harness in front of the pilot.

No two tandem flights are exactly the same, however, this is what you can expect from your day. After you get to the meeting point at Phagrei, we trek up to the flying location that is most suitable for the current weather conditions after the registration. There are a few excellent takeoff points on top hill, which gives you an opportunity to enjoy the superb views of the area and the flexibility to choose a suitable location depending on the weather so our chance of flying is higher.
Once we are at the takeoff site we do a briefing during which we take you through the details of the flight and explain the equipment and safety procedures. After a safety check, we’re ready to take off so we run a few steps down a gentle slope and it’s time to sit back and enjoy your flight. Depending on your desire, abilities, weather conditions and the area where we fly, your instructor might let you handle the controls during the flight. If you just want to relax and admire the scenery, that’s OK too, the main objective is to have a good time.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

Yes, almost anyone, who is reasonably fit and in good health, can learn to paraglide. As with most outdoor activities, there are a few common-sense exceptions, so if you are in doubt, please consult your doctor before deciding to fly

Category: Paragliding FAQ

There might be some walking to and from the takeoff and landing points and you will be required to run briefly for around 20 meters when we are getting airborne and when we land. So if you think that you are fit enough to do that, you will have no problem enjoying your first paragliding experience. You just need to be able to take a few steps at takeoff and landing and spend the rest of the time sitting comfortably in the harness. We can accommodate most people’s needs, so if you have any concerns, contact us to discuss before your flight.

We fully support this scheme and if possible will fly people with disabilities. Please call us and have a chat to find out more before booking.

The safe minimum weight is 25 kg and the maximum limit is 110 kg. This is determined by the certified weight ranges of the paragliding equipment we use. In terms of height, there are no official restrictions, you just need to be able to comfortably fit in the harness. We’ve never had a case in which a person who is within the safe weight limit hasn’t been comfortable with the harness.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

There are hardly any age limits if you fit within the weight requirements and are in good shape. The oldest passenger we’ve had so far was nearly 90 years old! Kids as young as 5 can fly too, as long as it is clear that they want to. A parent or a guardian must be present to look after them, participate in the briefing and be satisfied that we are taking all necessary measures to ensure the child’s safety. Any young people under the age of 18 need written parental consent to fly with us.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

No, not at all. Fear of heights is very common but for most people, the anxiety vanishes, the moment we are airborne. There won’t be any jumping off cliffs involved and when you are sitting comfortably and gliding in the sky, the feeling is very much like that of looking through an airplane window. If you’re already reading this, it means that flying is something you want to do. Let us know beforehand if there is anything that worries you and we will ensure that your experience is enjoyable and adjust the way we fly with you accordingly.

If you are lucky with the weather and depending on how many other bookings we have on the day, the whole experience will take a couple of hours, including meeting, preparing, instructions and the flight itself. We might need to change sites due to the weather, so it’s best to keep free a good part of the day or the whole day if you want to have the best chance to get your flight. We always do a weather check in the evening and the morning before flying.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

We aim for 10 – 15 minutes of flying time depending on the conditions, the wind strength and direction and of course on how the passenger feels and reacts to the experience. This is a very good duration for a paragliding flight, especially if it’s your first time doing it. Our aim is always to make it fun and enjoyable, so of course, if we can spend more time in the air and you feel good about it, that’s what we do, but the duration is only one of the many factors that make a tandem flight a great experience. We recommend you set aside a good part of the day to be able to take advantage of the best conditions as it is sometimes necessary to wait for the weather to improve.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

If you want to fly again straight after your pre-booked flight we can do that for you given that the conditions are good and that we have the time. Just get in touch with our command center and we will try to accommodate your request and offer you a special rate for your second flight.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

No, when you fly with us you fly with a qualified tandem instructor who lifts up the wing, makes sure that the wing is flying perfectly and then we take off from a slope using the wind to lift us up and glide effortlessly like a bird. You will be required to run for a few meters at takeoff and landing, but there will be no jumping or acrobatics involved.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

The weather in Ukhrul can be quite changeable. Always dress appropriately and wear layers as you might get warmer while walking and colder during the flight or if there is any waiting involved. As a rule of thumb, layers are better than wearing just a couple of thick items. Make sure you have some water and windproof top layer, thin gloves and a hat to go under your helmet. Footwear is also very important as you will need good ankle support to avoid injuries during takeoff and landing. Hiking boots are a good solution, avoid trainers or any other shoes with slippery soles.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

Statistically, paragliding is quite safe as compared to other sports. Choosing when to fly has the greatest impact on everyone’s safety when it comes to paragliding. Our instructors have all the necessary experience to judge the weather conditions and will only proceed with a flight if they are certain that safety will not be compromised.

Category: Paragliding FAQ

Like all other aviation activities, paragliding is extremely dependent on the weather. As much as we want everyone to experience the joy and freedom of joy flight, we will simply not compromise and take unnecessary risks if the conditions are not suitable for flying. So, the best thing to do is check with us the night before your flight and arm yourself with patience. However, if you are lucky and the winds and clouds are good, then all the waiting will be well worth it.
