Paragliding is the simplest form of human flight. A paraglider is a non-motorized, foot-launched inflatable wing. It is easy to transport, easy to launch, and easy to land. The pilot is clipped into a harness and oriented in a sitting position for maximum comfort. With a paraglider, you actually fly like a bird, soaring upwards on currents of air.
Tandem paragliding flights are available to enjoy year round, on a daily basis. This experience is weather dependent and may be postponed in adverse conditions.
Your tandem instructor will meet you on the day and brief you on the weather conditions, safety issues, and explain how the wing flies. You will also learn take off and landing procedures.
He will then show you how to put on your helmet and harness ready for launch. After the pre-flight safety checks have been done, your tandem instructor will inflate the wing and then it’s time to run until your feet no-longer touch the ground.
Very quickly you will be soaring through the air with fantastic views of the Ojai Mountain Valley and beaches. Flight duration is approx. 30 minutes, although this may vary depending on soaring conditions.
