Tandem flight instructor guided
A tandem paraglider is larger than one built for a single pilot. It’s designed to support the weight of two people, and allows a person with no previous experience to fly with an instructor, who controls the paraglider.
The pilot and passenger each have an independent harness attached to the wing and reserve parachute, ensuring your comfort and safety with both passive and active protection
DESCRIPTION OF FLIGHT
Have you ever touched a cloud? or imagined yourself flying quietly over mountains and waterfalls, enjoying nature from aloft, observing birds from above? Watching swallows play or perhaps a small eagle stalking its prey from above?
Have you imagined views of mountains and valleys from the air, flying free with no cable pulling you aloft? Would you like to see time stand still before your eyes?
Paragliding is like floating on a cloud above the city, from where you can truly appreciate the vastness of the valley and mountains. A 360 degree view allows you to appreciate the contrasts of mountains and sky from a place normally reserved for the luckiest birds.
With Paragliding Medellín, you can experience all these sensations and more.
