      Check it out!

      We use the amazing GoPro cameras to capture insane video and photos of your tandem paragliding flight – all the action, all the emotion! Ask your pilot.The inflight photos and video are an optional extra. You can view them after the flight without any obligation to buy them. If you do want to take them (most people do), we give them to you in a very convenient format – a 4GB micro SD card with an adapter and a plastic housing – very modern!
