Paragliding in Cape Town
Cape Town is one of the most spectacular places in the world to paraglide. Lion’s Head and Signal are the only sites that we fly from because of their location and the stunning views of Table Mountain and the Cape Town area. There are many other flying sites nearby, including, Sir Lowry’s Pass (just past Somerset West), Franschoek and Hermanus. Tandem paragliding instructional flights are a great way of getting into paragliding and experiencing the joy of freeflight. Flights last anything from 5-20mins.
No Experience Required
As one of our paragliding students you do not require any previous knowledge of paragliding at all. Your instructor will give you a full preflight briefing on everything you need to know before the flight. It is important that you listen to your instructor’s instructions. Take offs are easy (just a few steps usually) and landings are generally soft (we land on a large grassy field). We will provide instruction on how to ensure a safe and easy take-off and landing, including understanding the weather, equipment and some fundamental knowledge of aerodynamics.
