The Flight procedure

What should happen on your tandem-flight?

Tandem paragliding ZeroGravity is founded by flying enthusiasts which are willing to share their passion of flying with others. It is not only matter of flying but experiencing nature and beautiful sceneries that Macedonia offers. Our pilot/instructor has all necessary trainings and education and it is authorized by the Macedonian hang-gliding and paragliding association. In order to ensure maximum safety we use the most modern air material which are tested regularly and maintained. For larger groups we cooperate with other professional pilots who are authorized by the Macedonian hang-gliding and paragliding association. Our main priority is safety.

Preparation

After reaching the starting destination on the mountain,
your Tandem Pilot will prepare you the special
double seated paraglider. Your harness and helmet will be
properly fitted and take off and landing will be explained.
After a short test run (briefing), you and your pilot
will be attached together to the paraglider.
After final safety check you are ready to fly.

Start/Take-Off

When the wind conditions are right,
the pilot will lift the paraglider up
from the ground and after a few steps
you will be gently lifted into the air
and start flying.

The Flight

The dream of flying now begins.
Comfortably you are seated in the harness
and experience the indescribable freedom of flight.
We will be using thermals to gain elevation
and it is not a rarity to be accompanied
by an eagle using the same thermal.
With every meter we rise the view will be
evenmore incredible. As the world below
becomes smaller, your every day problems
disappear and your mind is set free
like a bird set free from its cage.

The Landing

After a wonderful flight
we prepare for landing. We need to take
the proper positioning in the harness
and the pilot will steer the paraglider
to a gentle landing. As we touch
the ground softly you will be
overjoyed that your dream of flying
has come true.
