What are the tandem flight procedures like?
To perform a tandem flight, both by hang-glider and paraglider, no previous experience is required. You take a short training: right before the flight you will practice the take-off run, and you will be told about flight and landing (either at the grass field or the beach sand) procedures. Everything in a practical and easy-to-understand manner.
For hang-gliders there will be an initial briefing, and you will practice your take-off several times, which is fundamental fora a good and safe take-off. For the paraglider, all we'll have to do is walk pulling the glider until we have it over our heads, inflated, rigid and at flight position. At this very moment, it will become a wing and take us off the ground, and we'll be flying ! What a wonderful moment...such transition from ground to air. We intend to remain in the air as long as possible, and to be sure of what kind of flight you wish: we may fly calmly ans smoothly, or we may experience some curves and maneuvers that will take your breath away and make your heart beat faster.
In Rio de Janeiro we'll fly over the world's largest urban rainforest, Tijuca Forest. If we get lucky and the waether conditions allow us to, we may fly over Gávea Mountain, Bonita Mountain and even the ramp we took off from. We'll share the sky with other solo or tandem flyers. We guarantee that no one remains indifferent to the feeling of flying. The tandem flight is one of the most sought activities for those seeking great thrill. A mix of adrenaline, peace and a great deal of freedom are the feelings people get into.
Weight and age
Since August, CSCVL (São Conrado Free Flight Club) determined that no child under 16 years old will be allowed to fly. Under 18 years old, special written permission from the parents or responsible person is required. From 18 on, there are no restrictions. Concerning weight, depending on the wind conditions, there may be some restricitons for passengers over 110 kg (app. 240 lbs). Besides all that, one must keep on checking flight conditions along the day – such conditions change quite quickly in summer, with wind direction and intensity varying along the day.
What to wear
Nothing extraordinary. Sneakers, boots or even a closed sandal that we have to lend you. On colder or even chilly days, a long sleeve sweater may make you more comfortable.
