About Paragliding Adventures - CLOSED

Paragliding Adventures in Springs, Johannesburg, runs a service from the Dunnottar Winch park where they offer tandem paragliding flights and powered paragliding courses. You can book a tandem flight and the team are friendly and very helpful. The winch park is in a field near the Military base and the view is quite pleasant.

The tandem pilot is friendly and professional and talks you through the entire process before take off. The only important thing is that you need to be able to take a short run. Good boots are important to protect your ankles.

The take-off is exciting… a line is fixed to the harness and then the paraglider is towed into the air by a winch mechanism on the back of a vehicle. As soon as the paraglider has reached a good height, the line is released and the flight begins.

Once in the air, the pilot will try to find a thermal and stay up for as long as possible. The view is amazing and the flight is almost perfectly quiet, so it is possible to have a conversation with the pilot. If you have a camera with a good strap, it is possible to take pictures. (Because you reach a fair height, its not a good idea to take expensive equipment that you could drop).
