FLIGHTS FOR TOURISTS

San Felix is a small village located 26 Km away from Poblado area and 15 km from  Down Town  To get to san felix you will have to cross the whole city,Trafic is pretty bad some times, this is the reason we rather to recomend you to come up by Public Transport "METRO" saves you  time, it's more confortable,  0 polution and safer, pluss the best view during your entired trip, by using the Cable cab up to stacion la AURORA.

 

Take the Metro towards San Javier B Line, get off at the last station, go the second floor and take the cable cab up to "LA AURORA " Station.

 

From la Aurora CABLE STATION up to the take off ramp in San Felix is about  9 km, approximate driving time like 15 minutes by car, unfortunatly there is no bus from here direct to san felix so you will have to make a transfer or take a taxi which we do not recommend in this area.

 

We can offer you the car shuttle  from LA AURORA to San Felix and Return.

 

The cost of this service will be 25.000 cop each person

TANDEM FLIGHT

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.

THE UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE OF A TANDEM FLIGHT OCCURS IN THE FOLLOWING STEPS:

  • Flight preparations begins at the take-off ramp, which is almost always located on a mountain, hill, or slope
  • Your pilot will ensure your gear is properly set up, including helmet and harness. Your legs, shoulders, and waist straps are connected with safety attachments
  • You’ll receive instructions for how to run on take-off, sit comfortably in your harness, and position yourself for landing.
  • We’ll take off by running along the ramp with the help of an assistant
  • You’ll enjoy at least 10 or 20 minute flight. If you’d like a longer flight, you please make arrangements with your pilot prior to take-off.
  • Once aloft, you’ll find yourself suddenly connected to the world of free-flight, already anticipating the next time you can make your dream of flying come true.
  • We always hope that you come away from a tandem flight wanting to fly on your own, with your own paragliding gear.
