Wind condition is a nature element that is beyond anyone’s ability to control or accurately predict.
If the weather is suddenly not suitable for tandem paragliding, you are able to reschedule the flight to another date. Please do not insist on the pilot to make a flight when weather condition is not safe to fly.
Flyable condition varies depending on passenger’s weight and wind condition at that particular time. It is not uncommon that some lighter passengers would be flown while heavier passengers have to wait for the right wind condition.
This type of flight is called Triplet Tandem and not performed at all locations.
The decision whether it is able to be performed is based on the pilot’s assessment at the time of day based on the wind condition and several other technical matters.
The pilot has the right to decline such requests and this is for safety reason.
Below is an example of Triplet Tandem flight.
