Tandem flights (flights with instructor)
If you have decided to fly on a two seat paraglider (tandem flight), you do not need to have any knowledge or experience considering flights, as an experienced paraglider pilot would be with you from the very start till the landing. He would willingly explain everything happening in the air, would show you some tricks of piloting, and would let you “steer” the paraglider in the case of favorable conditions.
But, let us start from the beginning…
Our cars or rope-way take you to the take off area, from where you would fly. Amazing scenery of Armenian highlands opens before you from here and while you enjoy this beauty, our staff will inspect the terrain, and view weather conditions.
After, you would have a five-minute briefing with the pilot, during which he would explain how to behave during every phase of the flight and will answer to your questions.
Then, preparing to take off, preflight inspection, radio check, command “RUN” ! … air counterflow blows to your face, … and after very few steps, TAKE OFF !!! you are in the air…
And one more thing … do not forget to share your impressions after a landing!… though… it’s very difficult not to do so, believe me 🙂 …
