PLEASE NOTE: All instructional fees are non-refundable.
Come take a “discovery” or tandem paragliding flight! Tandem flights are a method of experiencing free flight on a paraglider without having the responsibility of flying the glider yourself. They are available year-round, weather permitting but our main season is April through October.
The length of the flight may vary drastically from one to the next depending on weather conditions. We do our best to stay aloft however when there is little lift, we may be unable to do so. So flights vary from 3 to 15 minutes on average and are sometimes longer. We DO NOT refund partial or full flights due to short duration flights. Our flights are consistently longer than sky dives which are comparable in cost. So we do not apologize for this. We are providing a highly trained individual with special skills and ratings along with $6,000 gear and up for this tandem flight. Our cost also provides you with a temporary membership to the national organization, 3rd party liability insurance, site insurance covering the City of Boulder which allows us to fly, and permits with the City of Boulder. So our pricing is appropriate for the experience regardless of the length of the flight. We highly encourage you to focus on the FEELING of free flight and if you decide you want to experience this more, we encourage you to sign up for solo lessons with either an intro or complete paragliding class.
To schedule flights, you MUST purchase the flight first prior to scheduling. Then contact by text or phone call Mauricio at 650-303-0059. You give him the transaction number for your tandem flight and he will reserve you a spot. All instructional fees including tandems are transferable but non-refundable unless prior arrangements have been made.
HOW TO COORDINATE YOUR TANDEM PARAGLIDING FLIGHT
AFTER you purchase your tandem flight(s), please contact Mauri @650-303-0059 by call or text to schedule your flight. He will not schedule your flight or confirm availability until the tandem flights are paid for however.
Forms to be completed prior to the flight include:
- Peak to Peak Paragliding Waiver (PDF)
- Peak to Peak Paragliding Policies & Warranties (PDF)
- A 30 day temporary membership to USHPA will be completed just prior to your flight (get from your pilot).
Weight range for tandems is generally 100-240 lbs. If person flying is over 210 lbs or under 115, please let us know (we may still be able to take you but it might have to be with a specific pilot due to wing loading limitations~lighter passengers may need to be flown on smaller tandem wings as well). There are no specific age limitations to fly, but indicate the age and weight of the person when making the reservation. The passenger should be in good solid mental and physical health and able to run for 20-30 feet at a time without a problem. Minors must have the signed consent of the guardian in order to fly.
The meeting spot is Foothills Community Park. Here is a live link with DIRECTIONS to the meeting spot unless otherwise indicated by your tandem instructor.
