Tandem or Solo Paragliding Flight, Isle of Arran
- A unique flying experience!
- Choose between a tandem paragliding flight or a solo training flight day
- See the amazing sites of the Isle of Arran from a unique vantage point
The adventure sport of paragliding was invented in the late 1970′s in Europe and it is all thanks to three adventurous friends. They created this awesome experience by running off a slope, 1,000 meters high and gliding down to the ground below!
Over the years, rapid developments in both design and materials have taken place, resulting in modern paragliders that those early risk-takers could barely have imagined. With this experience you’ll have the choice of doing a ‘Tandem Paragliding Flight’ with an instructor or a ‘Funday Solo Training Paragliding Flight’.
Upon arrival you’ll be met by your friendly instructors who will take you through what the experience involves. There is a short hike up a 1000ft hill to get to the take-off location. The Isle of Arran is known as “Scotland in miniature” the Highland / Lowland fault line runs across the Island giving the full range of geographical features that are found throughout Scotland all in a 167 square miles so expect spectacular views!
In tandem paragliding you can enjoy a full aerial experience, without having to learn how to control the paraglider yourself. Your job is simply to relax and marvel at the views while your experienced pilot will take care of the launch, flight and landing. For the funday solo experience you’ll start your training on a gentle slope and gradually moves to higher flights as confidence and ability grow. This day can count towards your 5 day Elementary Pilot Course. The height of the solo flights depends on the weather condition, flying site and your individual level of confidence and ability. The BHPA training syllabus is used, that takes you step by step to freedom of the skies.
There is a vast range of different flying sites, taking in all wind directions. From high mountain thermalling to soaring on the sea cliffs of the raised beaches. The Isle of Arran is the perfect location for this amazing experience and is guaranteed to provide unforgettable memories!
