What is Tandem Paragliding?

Tandem paragliding is when you are flying as a passenger sitting in front of the pilot that will be steering the glider. The video below is an example of tandem paragliding :

Safety and guidelines
  1. All our tandem pilots are experienced and certified by the National Aviation Controller that is monitoring the quality and safety standards of paragliding sport.
  2. All passengers are recommended to seek doctor’s advice in prior, especially if they are suspected to have certain medical conditions and must inform the pilots during registration.
  3. Pregnant female passengers are not allowed to fly as tandem passenger, just to be prudent.

 

How much does it cost?

Notice : Starting from 1 June 2017, we are including the insurance registration as part of the tandem charges and this is a compulsory requirement for bookings made through us. Currently there are no other insurance companies offering coverage for tandem paragliding, except from this specially created package from Re-Claim by Lonpac Insurance Berhad.

  1. Bukit Jugra, Banting : RM220
  2. Bukit Batu Pahat, Kuala Kubu Bharu : RM280
  3. Hijauan Heights, Pedas : RM220
  4. Bukit Bubus, Kuala Besut : RM220
  5. Gunung Jerai, Kedah : RM450
  6. Gunung Raya, Langkawi : RM450
  7. Kokol Hill, Kota Kinabalu : RM450

 

What about insurance?
  1. Yes, we have insurance coverage for all of our tandem flights, therefore we are compliant to the regulation from DCA (Department of Civil Aviation) that are managed by MSAF (Malaysia Sports Aviation Federation).

 

Is there any weight limit for the passenger?
  1. Light wind : 25kg – 35kg
  2. Medium wind (ideal) : 40kg – 75kg
  3. Stronger wind : 80kg – 90kg

 

What about age, can children be passengers too?
  1. It is best that the passenger is fully aware what they are experiencing, therefore we strongly suggests that the passenger should be about 7 years old onwards. This is usually the stage where they are becoming aware and alert of their outdoor activities, able to communicate well with the pilot and last but not least, they would be big enough to sit safely snugged in the passenger harness.
Where are the paragliding locations?
  1. There are many sites around the country for tandem paragliding, below is a few for references and for the full listing it would be easier to contact us for details.
