THE JOY OF TANDEM PARAGLIDING FLIGHT
Enjoy a discovery 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 for the purposes of learning to paraglide but many people take them for pure fun. Tandems are flown mostly April 15 through mid October, weather permitting.
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. Flight times vary from 8 to 15 minutes on average and are sometimes longer. We do not provide partial or full refunds due to flight duration. The concept of these flights is to expose you to the sensation of flying without the responsibility of having to fly the paraglider yourself.
Peak to Peak Paragliding is currently working with Vail Valley Paragliding to conduct tandem flights in Edwards, Colorado, just west of Vail. Vail Valley Paragliding provides highly trained USHPA tandem instructors with special skills and top ratings, along with top-of-the-line and state of the art gear for your tandem flight. Our cost also provides you with a temporary membership to the national organization USHPA, 3rd party liability insurance, site insurance (which allows us to fly), and the necessary permits . We can also coordinate with you to fly in Boulder or Golden as well, but focus on Vail.

The passenger should be in healthy mental and physical health and ability to run for 20-30 feet at a time without a physical problem. We require you to notify us in writing in advance if you have diabetes or heart conditions that could affect you before, during or after the flight.

Minors must have the signed consent of the guardian in order to fly and we prefer a parent be present at the time of the flight in order to sign the appropriate waivers.
