What is age limit for tandem flying?Basically no age limit. But we recommend more than 5 years old. Because we are not sure baby will have a good memory or bad memory even no crying.
Can I fly with my puppy?Yes. It's possible. But you have to inform us ahead because we have to prepare a harness for your dog. If you have a dog harness that is safe enough to hold your puppy, you can use your own.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO FLY?
HOW LONG WILL THE FLIGHT TAKE?
Paragliding is a totally weather and wind dependent activity. Often the flying conditions are good early morning and late afternoon. HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING is trying to schedule the best time for you according to the weather forecast. Therefore it is important to be at the meeting point at the scheduled time.
It is best to plan for a half day as there are some preparations involved and often some waiting time.
The actual time in the air is between 10-15 min. You can book longer flights for an additional fee (check RATES).
HOW DO GET TO THE FLYSITE?
Besides using your own transport (vehicle/taxi) there is also public transport to all locations available but plan extra time. HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING also offers transport for an additional fee. Directions to the flysites will be given with the final confirmation as the location might vary.
WHAT TO BRING?
Always bring some water with you. It is usually sunny and hot and not all flysites have a shop nearby. Long pants/leggings are better than shorts or skirts due to the terrain and sometimes sharp grass. Dry fit or similar material is recommended. Also sun protection (hat, sun blocker, shades and long sleeves jersey) is something you do not want to miss. Absolutely NO SLIPPERS or high heels please. Any kind of outdoor/trekking/trail/running shoes are good.
Toiletries: Insect repellant, alcohol, wipes.
Helmet (and all other flying gear) will be provided but feel free to bring your own.
You can bring and use your own camera or phone but HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING takes absolutely no liability for lost or damaged items during the activity. You can rent a GOPRO for a fee.
