Travel 2015: Adventure: Tandem Paragliding at Carmona, Cavite

15 Comments
Let's go up, up and away!



Have you ever wondered how it feels like to fly like a bird? to admire the world from up above? to glide in the air and feel the wind against your skin? to have fun and feel free while you are many feet away from the ground? If you are like me who's a chaser of these kind of experiences then Paragliding is one adventure you shouldn't miss.

Tandem Paragliding

Tandem flying is paragliding with a certified Tandem Pilot. Tandem flights use paraglider wings large enough to accommodate the pilot and his passenger. In this kind of flights, the passenger is seated in front to give him the chance to admire the view and enjoy the experience while the pilot is seated behind to give him the space to control the flight.


Paragliding at Carmona, Cavite

The Paragliding flight area is located at Carmona Ridge in Cavite (near Carmona Estates, Barangay Lantic). I recommend to book a schedule in advance because the pilots can advise you when is the best time for you to come. Paragliding is very dependent on the wind strength and weather condition. There are days when flights are not possible so it is better to get an expert's advise. There are few pilots available. Get an appointment to make sure that you or your group will be accommodated.

The flight

I really enjoyed my 15-minute air time. The wind was very favorable during my turn. Olivier, the pilot, was able to go higher and even take some "roller coaster" turns which made me shriek with laughter. Gliding in the air made me feel like a kid in my first adventure ride. Fuuuuunnnnn!! :))




And HOOORAAAAYYY, it's another bucketlist check!! :)

    1. In my case, it was my friend who took my photo. Since the flight is one person, one pilot, there will be people in the jumpoff who you can ask to take your photos. Also, the pilots can lend you their go pro, you just have to pay 500 for the memory card.
