Frequently asked questions

Organization questions

Q: Will I do paragliding alone or with instructor?
A: You'll fly with instructor only!

Q: How works the organization of a paragliding tandem flight?
A: We agree on a desired flight date via online booking, email or phone. Because paragliding is completely depending on weather conditions, we will contact you in any case on the evening prior to the desired flight date between 20:00 to 21:00 to inform you about the weather, accurate time planning, flight area, meeting place and time.

Q: We are group of 4...100 people. How many people can do paragliding per time?
A: It works this way: one pilot-instructor and one passeger in one glider. We can pick up and ride to take off from 1 to 4 persons per time for 10 to 30 min fly time (jeep tour) and up to 30 persons for short 5-8 min fly time.

A: One pilot-instructor can do paragliding for one person only. We can do up to 4 persons per time: 4 pilots and 4 gliders at the same time in the air!

A:
Yes, sure! We refund your deposit confirmation payment to your payment card in 72 hours, if we can't do paragliding in main or reserve day or you want to cancel your booking before 14 days.

A: Yes! Tour price is fixed and you can share cost among your friends. Offroad tour to takeoff not included in Kazbegi tour (in paragliding options only). You can join up to 7 persons per one booking for Kazbegi tour.

Q: Why is fear of vertigo is not a problem for a paragliding tandem flight?
A: Vertigo is often mistakenly equated with fear of heights. In fact, anyone except maybe the people who works every day in high altitudes are afraid of heights. During paragliding, the fear of vertigo vanishes within seconds after the take off.

Q: Does my age and weight matter?
A: We also fly with children over 10 years, but morning time only (8-9am). High take off weight leads to a higher take off speed. If your weight is more then 100kg please consult your pilot first, it depends on weather conditions and wind speed also.
