Tandem Paragliding Flight

Availability:Currently not available
From the moment you launch until you land, you’ll feel the exhilaration of free flight in a paraglider. 

The adventure begins with a brief ground school session during which you will be introduced to the fundamentals of how to launch, control and land a paraglider.

Once ready, you will be strapped into the harness and connected to your Instructor for your flight.

Tow launching from a hydraulic is the easiest way to first experience paragliding flight. Launching from the flat grassy field and gently ascending to altitude eliminates the nervousness that is typically associated with running down a hillside to become airborne.

As you reach the top of your climb, 2000 ft., your instructor will release the glider from the tow line, allowing you to enjoy free flight over Drayton Valley.

You don't need any previous flying experience, just good health, an able body, and the ability to do a few quick steps to get off the ground.

  • Discovery flight with instructor.
  • Pre-flight briefing.
  • All necessary equipment.
