Your Paragliding Queensland Tandem experience is planned to last approximately 30 minutes however this time is controlled very much by the weather conditions on the day.
Our launch site/location is also dictated by the prevailing weather conditions and passengers will be required to contact their Tandem Paragliding pilot on the morning of the flight for final weather confirmation and launch site location.
At the end of the flight, our plan is to land back at the launching site, however weather conditions can affect this and we may land further afield or at the bottom of the mountain The added time taken to return to the launching site may result in a total time with our company in excess of 1.5hrs.
Passengers are free to take still or video cameras with them on their flights to record the moment, however Paragliding Queensland can supply a High Definition video of your flight taken from our special onboard camera. We supply a USB stick with up to 2GB of video footage for the cost of $40. Please notify our office if you wish to take advantage of this service.
Flights usually take place between 11am and 4pm with all launch sites situated within 20 minutes drive of Canungra. Canungra itself is 1hr south of Brisbane CBD and 40 minutes west of the Gold Coast. Maximum passenger weight for tandem paragliding flights is 105kg while minimum passenger age is 14 years.
