Paragliding tandem flight in Sofia
Paragliding tandem flight with an instructor is a great opportunity to enjoy the flight without any flight training. A well-trained pilot will take care of you during the take-off, flight and landing.
What is the paragliding flying procedure?
The paraglider is the lightest motorless aircraft, parachute-like, which our passengers enjoy a tandem flight with together with an instructor. Welcome into our passion – the air! It is easy for us to share it with you.
- Before the flight
After upfront agreement, you meet the instructor on the square in Dragalevtsi, or we pick you up from a place of your choice. Travelling time is around 15 minutes by car, close to Aleko hut. Then we walk around 25 minutes on the Vitosha plateau, close to the “Kominite” area where the take-off location is.
During that time, you get to know your pilot who has already answered your questions and won your trust.
The take-off location reveals a panoramic view of the entire Sofia which we call the “WOW point”. After a short break and a photo session, the pilot helps you with the flight equipment, provides you a helmet, сбруя, checks and doble checks each detail. A pre-flight instruction follows, paying attention to the safety.
The pilot is right behind you, performing pre-flight check – “check, check, check”, checks several times all carabiners and locks, the spare parachute, as well as the paraglider. When the wind flow is good enough, he pulls out and stretches the wing over you, inviting you to start running. Both the pilot and you run together until the wing takes all your weight.
You are flying, really flying! In fact, you fly very comfortably – sitting like in a comfortable armchair. Rocks float beneath your feet and wind whistles in your ears.
- Enjoy the flight
It is difficult to describe the emotions that you feel when flying. Enthusiasm, a sense of true freedom, magnificent views, enjoying every second in the sky.
During the flight you can talk to the pilot, you can ask for more adrenaline or calm sailing, he can allow you to “drive” the paraglider a little bit.
- Soft landing
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end sooner or later, and either we wish it or not, we are approaching the Earth. You can see your friends waving you from the landing ground known also in our paragliding community slang as the “the perch“.
Inches before you reach the ground, the pilot will invite you to stand up and step on the ground. Sometimes it might take a few steps to walk. Your friends are running to you to take photos and ask thousands of questions: “How was it, was it scary?” Next is packing the equipment and a short trip back to Dragalevtsi.
