After gathering at the tour meeting point, begin with a briefing about take-off before adjusting your flying seat position. Following that, begin practicing taking off, at which point you're ready to fly. The tandem glider used for your activity is specially designed to carry two people, and is nearly twice the size of a regular solo paraglider. Your flight lasts 20 minutes on average, depending on the force of the wind and other flight conditions. Your team on the day is made up of experienced and certified pilots. Your flight is filmed with a GoPro Hero5 camera, and following your flight you are issued an SD card containing video footage to take home with you.

Large, very clean, comfortable park, inexpensive snacks and a very friendly welcome. Large wave pool which delighted the children. Noys had a great day and for a much more reasonable price than the same type of park in France!
