Flying with tandem paragliding is the most ideal, enjoyable, and safe way to fly in Sicily. Fly over Taormina sustained by smooth ascension air currents is an amazing experience for everyone; serenity and admiration are the dominant emotions!
There is no jump into the void, no fear or vertigo, only an amazing relaxing feeling.
The adventure begins meeting the pilot that will bring you to the selected flying site. He will give you all the necessary information and show you the paraglider and the flying principles. Once at the takeoff area, you and the pilot will climb into your full protection harnesses, then attach to the glider utilizing a spreader bar system.
…and then… one deep breath…one, two, three steps…. and you’re gently lifted off the hill!
Once you are airborne the pilot can easily talk to you and explains how to control the paraglider. If the conditions are right, and you are willing, the pilot can turn over the controls to you to fly the paraglider while he sits behind.
Landing the tandem is smooth and easy. The pilot simply steers the paraglider into the wind for a nice glide path, slows the glider, and you step down on your tip-toes. The landing, on the beach, is so soft that you’ll forget about gravity. If you want to feel a little more adrenaline, your pilot can also include acrobatic inserts. If you want to take it easy, you lean back and relax.
The Paragliding Taormina is a very exclusive experience, half day long with a fly time of about 20 minutes. The duration of the flight and any changes in the flight itself may be affected by the weather conditions that the pilot will evaluate on the spot. His judgment is unquestionable and the only one who can make these decisions to ensure that the flight is in total safety.
This is an experience to live and to share with friends through the high-resolution video and pics that will be given to you at the end.
