WHAT IS THE TANDEM PARAGLIDER
The paraglider is a wing designed to allow the pilot to take off using leg thrust. It is characterized by the launch point along steep slopes such as mountainous ones. Paragliding, in fact, takes advantage of wind and height. The pilot maneuvers the wing through the suspenders connected to the ropes that act as handlebars. Its origins date back to the late ’60s and, today, it has become a real sport for which there are also competitions. Tandem paragliding is characterized by the presence of a certified instructor who steers the paraglider. In this way, the activity is safe for everyone and the passenger can enjoy the adrenaline experience without any worries.
HOW THE ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE
The hike & fly paragliding flight on Monte Faito, near the Amalfi Coast, takes place every afternoon at the meeting point indicated on the map, where you will be given the technical equipment and meet your instructor who will explain safety procedures, flight technique and everything you need to know about your adventure.
You will board the Faito cable car, which connects the town of Castellammare to Mount Faito and, after a walk of about 30 minutes (hike), you will reach the take-off point (fly). The landing point, however, is on the beach of Castellammare. The flight has a duration of 25-30 minutes.
Once landed, you can pick up the photo and video of your flight experience to relive those feelings every time you want (N.B. you must bring a Micro SD for Action Cam).
WHO IS THE ACTIVITY FOR
Paragliding is an activity for everyone as it does not require any physical preparation. You will always be well connected to the instructor and you just have to enjoy the adventure.
The maximum weight allowed per passenger is 130kg (variable depending on the wind). This activity is also ideal for couples who want to share a unique and unforgettable moment.
