YOUR FLIGHT JOURNEY

Pick Up

Your adventure begins

Your paragliding in Tenerife adventure begins here. Your truly amazing experience with us at Airsports starts from the moment you climb on board our Mercedes Vito that will transport you safely up to take off. You will feel excitement and anxiety build up in you as the jeep winds it ́s way higher and higher up the mountainside revealing breathtaking views. Bottled water is available to quench your thirst.

You will be able to chat with our pilots and get answers to any of your thoughts or questions. Our pilots will also point out and explain any interesting observations concerning weather and flying conditions giving you a glimpse into the invisible world of free flight. A free flight pilot can after many years of experience read the invisible air flows in the same way as a surfer reads his wave or a skier his mountain.

Take Off

You will now be briefed regarding take off, flight and landing procedures

Upon arrival at the take-off, you will now be equipped with your harness, helmet and a go pro camera that will film the flight, (jackets will be supplied on cooler days). You will now be briefed regarding take-off, flight and landing procedures.

The paraglider is now laid out and you are connected to the glider and your pilot. Your pilot will now inflate the glider, after a few quick steps you will feel yourself magically float away from the hillside, this feeling alone will stick with you for the rest of your life.

In the Air

Your pilot will now keep a running commentary pointing out things of interest

Once airborne your pilot will help you get comfortable in your harness, you will be surprised just by the comfort and this helps you to feel secure. Your pilot will then do his best to find and utilise any thermal updrafts that are present and possibly take you high up above take off and at the same time prolonging your flight. Your pilot will keep a running commentary pointing out things of interest and also explaining how the glider is flown.

Depending upon the weather conditions you will at some stage during the flight have the opportunity (if you so wish) to take over the controls for a little while under close guidance of your pilot. Most of the flight is experienced as an almost surreal serene experience gliding silently over majestic landscapes but if you wish to spice things up a bit just ask you pilot and he ́ll throw in some wild n crazy, white knuckle, high G force aerobatic manoeuvres. This is your paragliding in Tenerife experience and we're here to help you make the very best of it.

Landing

This is the unavoidable moment when a huge silly grin appears on your face

Eventually, you will glide towards the landing area (if conditions allow on the soft sands of Playa la Enramada beach to sound of breaking Atlantic waves) touching down softly with your landing gear down (i.e your legs). This is the unavoidable moment when a huge silly grin appears on your face and it ́s just impossible to look angry. You will feel a euphoria that will be with you for days. This is exactly the reason we ourselves fly.

Our biggest wish is that your experience with us gives you the inspiration to become a paraglider pilot yourself back in your homeland and be a privileged member of the paragliding family and one who masters the fine art of looking down on people.

The Playa la Enramada beach near La Caleta is our favoured landing spot purely because of the unbeatable feeling of landing on soft sand to the sound of crashing Atlantic waves. There´s also a great beach bar there for that after flight drink. Please note that depending on weather conditions we cannot guarantee a beach landing.

Relive your flight

Your paragliding in Tenerife flight has been photographed and filmed in HD quality

You now have the possibility of purchasing this fantastic material either by transfer into your mobile device, the memory card itself from the Gopro camera or for a slightly higher price buy an edited video. You will now be able to relive you flight over and over again with friends and family, not to mention a Instagram or Facebook post that will definitely make your friends envious.
