PLEASE  READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY. THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR EVENT.

WHICH FLYSITE?

From October until June paragliding takes place mainly in Carmona/Cavite and occasionally in Binangonan/Rizal. During the rain season (June until October) paragliding is only possible in San Mateo/Rizal but not every day. HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING will schedule the flying depending on the weather conditions. Weather forecasts are never reliable more than 2 days in advance, therefore please wait for the final confirmation to be informed about the exact time and location to meet. Location and time may vary. All flysites can be usually reached within 1 hour drive from Ortigas area (SM Megamall). In case you want to fly at a specific location, please mention it with your online booking.

 

HOW MUCH IS A FLIGHT?

Rates are different on weekdays and weekends/Holidays. The rates with HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING are very reasonable compared to international standards even though the operational costs are the same. HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING invests most of its revenues back into new equipment to guarantee for the highest level of safety.  Check here for RATES

HOW CAN I BOOK A TANDEM FLIGHT?

The best way to book a tandem flight is an online booking. A deposit is required to secure your booking. Walk-In is not recommended as your flight cannot be guaranteed. Check here for BOOK A FLIGHT

WHAT TIME TO FLY?

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

The best time to fly is often in the mornings. It can be as early as 7am. But usually the paragliding starts around 8am. Weather/wind can be unpredictable. After all paragliding is a weather dependent activity. To give everyone the best chance to do the tandem flight, it is important to be at the meeting point at the scheduled time. Each flysite is at a different location and has a different meeting point. Click on the buttons of the flysites above to find out more.

 

Best to plan for a half day (morning).

 

The actual flight takes 10-15 min. You can book longer flights of up to 30min for an additional fee (see RATES).

 

 

HOW DO I GET THERE?

The exact location and time will be given to you 1-2 days before the scheduled date. Besides using your own transport (vehicle/taxi) there is also public transportation to all locations available but plan extra time. HIGH 5 PARAGLIDING also offers transportation by car (limited to a maximum of 3 passengers) which can be reserved for a fee. Directions to the locations are on the specific pages of each flysite.

WHAT TO BRING?

Expect hot and sunny weather. BRING ENOUGH WATER WITH YOU!

Polyester/trekking pants (shorts, not really recommended due to the sharp grasses). Any dry fit (or similar material) shirt for comfort. You can also wear leggings.

Sun protection: hat, sun block, shades, long sleeve jersey.

Outdoor shoes, trekking shoes, trail shoes or running shoes. SLIPPERS STRONGLY DISCOURAGED.

Toiletries: insect  repellant, alcohol, wipes.

Helmet: Will be provided, but if you prefer to use your own you can bring it with you.

Camera or video camera for souvenir shots; smart phone also ok, but make sure not to lose it in flight.

You can rent a GoPro for a fee, if you don't have your own action cam.

RESTRICTIONS

There is no age limit as a passenger for paragliding. But there is a weight range. Minimum weight is 20kg and maximum weight is 100kg per passenger. Flying with little/lighter children is not really recommended but can be done as a Tridem (2 pax at the same time) at the discretionary of the pilot and only on certain weather conditions. The rate in this case is still per person.

If you feel healthy in general, you are probably fit enough for paragliding. In case you are not sure, please consult your doctor. 

Persons With Disabilities (PWD) are encouraged to do tandem paragliding as long as it does not interfere with the safety procedures.
