Fly Tandem

Come paraglide tandem with us, and experience free flight in its purest form! Launching a paraglider with your instructor involves running down a grassy hill and letting the wing carry you away and into adventure.  You suddenly find yourself airborne, sitting comfortably in a reclined harness, your feet dangling above the trees, no one in front of you (pilot rides in back) and no cockpit surrounding you.  No noise – just you and the wind.

Depending on conditions you’ll have views of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Si, Lake Sammamish, Bellevue, Seattle, the Puget Sound and so much more. Bald eagles and other predators leave their nests to ride the same thermals allowing you to literally fly with birds.

Paragliding Tandem at Tiger Mountain in Issaquah, WA

Your USHPA certified tandem instructor will provide you with instruction, a harness, helmet, and everything else needed for your first flight. The cost is $250. The cost is 100% deductible from the full course instruction fee should you decide to proceed with instruction and become a fully-certified paragliding pilot. If the weather prevents us from flying you can reschedule for another day or receive a full refund.

You have the option of hiking to the top, enjoying the view (maybe eat lunch/dinner) and then flying down. It’s a fun and unique way to spend half a day.

Not only is the flight memorable but our launch, located at Poo Poo Point on Tiger Mountain, has views of Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, Lake Sammamish, Bellevue and the Cascades. Family and friends can ride to the top, enjoy the views and watch you launch or, remain in the landing zone and watch you land.
