Intro Tandems

At Fly Gravity Sports we use the latest tandem winch towing techniques to provide the most enjoyable and exciting experience possible. Modern “Tandem” hang-gliders are built for two and flown by our very experienced Certified tandem pilots. The tandem hang glider is towed into the air to about the height of the “CN Tower” by our specially designed winch. (weather permitting) This bucket list item is perfect for Corporate team building events, large family get togethers and thrill seekers who want to get an overall perspective of hang gliding. No experience is necessary for this hang gliding lesson which is also handicapped accessible.



Prior to commencing your intro tandem lesson, you will be required to complete a waiver. You will also be extensively  briefed on all safety procedures including what to expect during your introductory tandem/lesson. Finally, we should highlight that previous experience in hang gliding is not necessary and There’s no stupid question,when it comes to your safety. Feel free to ask Questions!

Casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. You should wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather on the day. It can be cold gliding at 2000 feet and higher, so You may want to bring gloves, sweatshirt and sunglasses. All other equipment will be provided.

This experience is open to people of all ages. We have flown everyone from children to ninety year old grandmothers! Children under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied by a Parent or legal Guardian. There is a weight limit of 30Kg to 100kg Maximum!

HD Video is available for only $28.00 plus tax. We have a front mounted GO PRO Camera which records your whole flight in MP4 and also takes an 11 megapixel photo every 5 seconds. Please notify staff before commencing your intro tandem if you would like video and photos.

Hang gliding is weather dependent. In case of bad weather, we may need to reschedule your experience to a later date. We will not compromise on safety! THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR RESCHEDULING DUE TO WEATHER.

This experience  is available daily (weather permitting) and is subject to availability.  The time of your intro tandem flight will vary from around 10 minutes to half an hour depending on the weather and thermals.  Thermals are formed by the sun heating the ground, which in turn heats the air above it, causing it to rise. We use this rising air ( As do the birds) by circling in the thermals to gain height. Please allow at least 45 minutes for the entire experience.

Hang gliding makes for a peaceful aerial journey. However, during your lesson your pilot will give you the opportunity to take the controls and have a go at flying the hang glider by yourself. You will be amazed how easy it is! Landing is possibly the most exhilarating part of the hang gliding experience. At the conclusion of your flight, your instructor will make a smooth landing on wheels.
