I do not have own transportation.
Carpooling? If you do not have a vehicle or prefer to carpool:
We can work out carpooling from either Ferry-boat stations, train station or any of the areas close as long as you are in route to the flying spot. Details about this can be discussed on the phone.
Are there any age/weight restrictions?
More important than age, the passenger must weight between 30 to 110 KG, depending on wind intensity.
For anyone aged till 17 must have the formally consented of a guardian. We have flown passengers from 10 to 84 years of age.
What do i need to know about my paragliding flight?
We will supply all of the last generation equipment and mandatory insurance.
We will have a previous briefing to explain all the procedure.
You will fly together with an instructor seated in a comfortable harness.
Passenger and Pilot will communicate easily during all the flight.
What to wear on the flying day?
Sturdy or trekking shoes that you would go for a brisk walk. Preferably with a closed toe to better protect your feet.
A warm top. Even if the day is hot it is cooler when flying around in the sea breeze. On a cold day it can be very chilly, so rug up.
Glasses or sunglasses are fine.
Sunscreen, hat and water – sometimes we have to wait for a while for the conditions to be just right. As we are close to the beach you may like to have your swimmers and towel handy.
What about small groups, do we fly together?
For small groups of two or more passengers, each will be flown in a separate tandem either simultaneously or consecutively. Paragliding Lisbon has several qualified Tandem pilots and on some days we may have several pilots available. Depending on pilot availability you can choose to either fly simultaneously (the same time) or consecutively (one after the other). Some passengers want to fly in the air at the same time, e.g. to wave at each other and/or take video/photography in the air, others prefer to fly consecutively, e.g. to take video/photography from the ground, look after children/pets, etc. Whenever possible we let you make the choice.
May I bring a Camera for in flight pictures?
Do you think the memory of your wonderful experience will fade with the years passing by?
Make your flight a lasting memory with great photos and/or a movie. You may bring a Camera for in flight pictures.
Do we Jump in Paragliding?
There are fundamental differences between parachuting and Paragliding.
The term tandem jump or tandem flight is often spoken. In Paragliding, in opposition of parachuting, we do not jump. Our glider is already open before the take-off. It lifts slowly flying forward and up.
The feeling of “leap into the void” does not exist in paragliding.
