Description

FLIGHT IN TWO SEAT PARAGLIDING (2 PEOPLE)

If you have never flown paragliding and want to try it, the simplest thing is to do a flight in a two-seater paraglider, with a qualified and certified pilot. The two-seater is a paraglider designed to carry the weight of two people, the pilot and the passenger, without the need for the passenger to have any prior knowledge of this form of flight. There are also no age or physical limitations, it is enough that the person is able to run a few steps and has minimal health conditions compatible with the flight. Take-off is simple and the pilot is in charge of this, the passenger only has to follow some instructions, take a few steps and let himself be carried away by the paraglider; once in the air he will be comfortably seated in the harness until he touches the ground again.

This rate includes:

  • Transportation from the Buenavista square to the airstrip and back to the square again after landing. 
  •  Medical assistance policy
  • Video of approximately 5 minutes and 40 photos. 
  • Accompaniment of Pilots certified by the Colombian Federation of Air Sports with more than 18 years of experience in the activity.
  • Elements of Biosafety, we have available to our clients: Small water bottle, antibacterial gel, 70% alcohol, face masks, caps, gloves and tissues.
  • We fly every day! 

The equipment we use for the paragliding activity is:

  • Two-seater paragliding wing
  • Harness for pilot and passenger approved and certified for the activity.
  • Approved helmets for the pilot and passenger.
  • Emergency parachute in case of any incident during the flight.
  • Each pilot has a well-equipped first aid kit in his briefcase
  • Communication and cellular radios.

FLIGHT AREA

We fly from the municipality of Buenavista located in the department of Quindío which is located 50 minutes from Armenia and approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes from Pereira, we are also very close to Valle del Cauca. The take-off site is known as Las Tres Cruces hill in Tolrá Park, the paragliding activity takes place with views of the Buenavista municipality and the Maraveles Valley; in this site due to its meteorological conditions we can enjoy a thermal flight that will help us to appreciate the imposing landscape. The take-off site is at 1,870 meters above sea level and we have several landing sites that are at 1,000 meters above sea level and that the pilot chooses due to weather and safety conditions, thus determining which is the safest to land; We are talking that our paragliding tour is almost 7 kilometers long and you will be able to enjoy the spectacular view of the Coffee Cultural Landscape named by UNESCO as Cultural Heritage of Humanity, where you will be able to appreciate the coffee crops, banana crops, citrus crops, and guaduales, in addition to the beautiful streams and many other landscapes. We take off over the beautiful mountains of the Buenavista municipality, cataloged as the "Balcón del Quindío" for its majestic viewpoints. It really is an experience that you cannot miss!

ACTIVITY TIME

We offer a flight experience focused on safety and the Coffee Cultural Landscape; This experience lasts approximately between 10 to 15 minutes depending on the weather conditions at the time of making the flight. All the activity from the moment of the meeting until the return can last one hour and ten minutes if we do not have delays due to the weather; sometimes we must have a little patience because we have to wait until the conditions are safe to carry out the activity. ALWAYS keep in mind that the paragliding activity is subject to weather conditions, for this reason we do not offer an exact flight time.

We were 5 friends in such a wonderful place and country. Super recommendable to deal with them and to the change for us quite economic. About 40 euros in exchange ... here in Spain for the same thing is more than twice as much. And what about doing it in the coffee area? If I come back.09/11/2019
