What is this, and how does it take place?
The passenger seat and the pilot hanger system are connected together in a single unit. The area of a tandem paraglider is large enough to take up a pilot with a passenger weighing up to 110 kg. At the start-up the paraglider is lying in a spread-out position on the ground. The pilot and the passenger are hitched to the winch cable, then a machine equipped with a special winch tows the tandem up at the altitude of 450 metres. The passenger needs to run some 10 metres during the take-off. When a sufficient altitude has been attained in mid-air, the pilot disconnects the cable and you hover together in a free flight above the ground. The duration of the flight is from 6 to 15 minutes, depending on the weather conditions.
