Those who love the mountain know how we depend on its mood. Some days it invites us to enjoy its beauties, some other days it prefers to leave it alone, otherwise it can get angry. Usually, this is called weather 😀
This is even more important for paragliding (for example, rain and strong air are prohibitive conditions for flight). The above dates may change, depending on the weather, in order to have the best chance of flying. We will be in constant contact with you, in order to inform you of any changes. Usually, we can have a reliable weather forecast 2-3 days before.
For this reason, if the flight won’t take place, without the participant’s responsibility (e.g. due to inappropriate weather conditions), the amount of 50 € is refunded. If the flight won’t take place due to the responsibility of participant, (e.g. change of opinion before flying), the amount of 30 € is refunded.
*Isn’t it dangerous?
Flight always poses a risk, regardless of the flight device. However, we always make sure to minimize every risk parameter in order to offer the highest possible level of security. Our equipment (parachutes, seats, etc.) is new, our pilots are certified and experienced, and if we believe that the weather is not appropriate, we are postponing the flight, with no second thought.
* What is the paragliding?
The paragliding is one of the simplest flying devices that allows us to take off from a mountain slope and make a calm and enchanting flight with comfort and safety and air in our face without mechanical means. The absolute sense of freedom.
* What do I need to do?
Except from running for a few meters at the beginning, absolutely nothing. You will fly as a passenger in two set flights (tandem), together with one of our experienced pilots, who will take over everything: the take-off and landing process, the briefing, the necessary equipment (wing, seats, spare parachute, helmets).
