Paragliding – Free as a bird

Flying.

Everybody dreams of flying.
And we make it happen.

 

Nothing is better than paragliding. And you can enjoy it on your Italian vacation. Slowly and calmly, you will glide above a colorful Sicilian village lit up by sunlight and breathe the fresh summer air. Paragliding with us is one of the freshest experiences in Italy, opening up to a brand new vision of life. The panorama of mountains and the sea is something you will never forget.

 

Paragliding is safe

However it looks, the chance of an accident in a glider is much smaller than being in a car accident. And with us, the chances are even smaller: we follow a strict ‘safety first’ policy by flying only in perfect weather. In Italy, anyone who wants to be in a glider alone has to be a trained pilot, have a medical certificate and flight insurance. And pilot training is just as strict as in the UK or Germany, if not more so.

 

Paraglide without a license

You just said it wasn’t possible! Actually you can – pilots are allowed to take one passenger. Flying in tandem, you get to float through the air free as a bird while the pilot takes care of all the details! Even if you are afraid of heights – and maybe to overcome your fears – paragliding is an enjoyable and freeing experience: it is totally controlled, a floating and then a controlled, steady descent.
Your paragliding pilot is like a conductor. He is a member of the Italian Air Club, is state-certified, and is approved for passenger transport. You are even covered by accident insurance.

 

Take-off – there are three different take-off points: Pollina, Lascari, and Cefalu. The departure place depends on wind direction.

 

Landing – Your gentle landing will be right on the beach of Cefalu, Lascari, or Pollina. Under some wind conditions, you may end up right where you took off.

 

Price – tandem flight € 70,00 including transfer from the take-off point and Cefalu. Plus: for only € 20,00 extra you can have a video of your memorable experience for your friends and family to enjoy!
