Information and FAQ

We are often asked about this

Paragliding is a free flight on the wing without any mechanical assistance. To maintain the paraglider in the air, ascending streams of warm air are necessary. Being engaged in paragliding, we use two main sources of generating lift.


  • The earth, warmed by the sun, gives up its heat to the air, as a result of which warm streams of rising air are formed - (thermals)
  • The background wind encounters an obstacle in its path, rushes up the slope, and as a result, provides us with a lifting force - (dynamic flow)

In high mountain conditions, the flights are mainly based on the ascending currents of warm air, which we use to rise above our launch pad and land back to the launch pad. More experienced pilot’s use ascending warm air currents (thermals), overcoming hundreds of kilometers and can be in the air almost all daylight hours.

A paraglider is an ultralight aircraft, something like a parachute with only a small difference. The parachute opens in the air. The paraglider, we open in advance, checking everything on the ground and after several steps we take off and soar like a bird. To soar on a paraglider, we need an ascending stream of warm air. The pilot sits in a comfortable suspension system under a fabric wing, the oncoming air flow fills the wing and gives it shape. Paragliders are light and compact, it makes them very portable and comfortable to use. They are wonderful!

When flying on a tandem - paraglider, you fly together with a qualified pilot instructor.

A special paraglider designed for flights in tandem has a double area with increased load characteristics.

You wear a special flight gear, which is called a suspension system. Before taking off you will be instructed, and fastened to the pilot-instructor.

During the start, you need to take a few steps.

Perform all pilot commands.

The pilot will do everything to ensure your flight is safe.

Usually, to take off is enough to take a few steps, but sometimes you need to run, it depends on the wind. The lower the wind speed, the faster we need to run.

The most important thing you should remember is to carry out the instructions of your pilot-instructor. Before the start, your pilot will give you a two-minute briefing. This will be enough to safely take off and land.

After takeoff, the instructor will help you take a comfortable position in flight. Landing will be very soft on the feet of the instructor.

Our flights last from 5 to 50 minutes.

"5 minutes! It really is not enough! ”We understand and we agree. We like to fly long and high as well as you. However, flights on a paraglider, as in any other aviation, depend on weather conditions, and the duration of the flight directly depends on the amount of warm air and lift, if warm air is not enough to lift us, the paraglider gradually decreases and loses altitude. During the day, the weather is constantly changing, and the duration of flights during the day varies from day to day. If you want guaranteed flight time, then we advise you to fly on a “MOTO-PARAGLIDER”, “ParaTrike” or flight on a paraglider “air excursion to the Aragvi canyon”.

All flights take place daily, with the presence of flight weather.

  • May - October from 9.00 am to 19.00 pm
  • November - April from 11.00 AM to 16.00 PM.

Note:

For those who are swayed in the plane or in motor transport, we recommend booking flights from 9.00 AM to 12.00 AM, as the atmosphere is more stable in the morning.

Yes, included! After landing, our jeep will pick you up and take you to our office or to the place of our meeting in Gudauri. Our cars are equipped with everything necessary for comfortable movement.
