The tandem paragliding flights are usually performed in the morning between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. or after 4 p.m., when the weather is suitable for paragliding flights. You can meet the pilot in front of the Chichovtsi restaurant in Dragalevtsi neighbourhood. The flying grounds are several - Valchata skala, Kominite, Reznyovete, Kopitoto and others. The pilot decides which is the most suitable place and you go there by foot. The flight lasts 30-45 minuttes depending on the atmospheric conditions. The landing place is above the stadium of Tsarsko selo complex.

Good to know:
You need to get to Dragalevtsi neighbourhood by personal means of transportation or by using the public transportation. You can join the instructor on his way to the mountain. This is done upon preliminary agreement. The purchase of a flight or a voucher can be done a day before the fly off.
The flights from Vitosha require walking on foot due to the ban of driving in the region of the Natural park. We recommed that you wear comforable clothes - sport or turistic shoes, a jacket.The duration of the flight depend on the atmospheric conditions and the weight of the passenger /up to 110 kg./ from 15 to 30 min/. Heavier passengers can also fly, however the pilot should be warned.
Age – over 16s (younger people need to bring a declaration signed by their parents).
When flying with a tandem paraglider and a duration of about one hour, a height needs to be reached 'in thermals" (raising hot air), planing, searching and flying round in the next thermal torrent. When using "thermals": for raising up, the pilot makes "spirals" so that he can stay more in them.
It is possible that the passenger could have a slight headache, because his vestibularis is not used to this. Usually it fades quite fast, but when it does not, the flight is terminated. Once at the flying ground, your pilot will help you with the equipment and will give you short briefing on the taking off and the flight. You are going to fly with an experiened pilot and you are going to have the chance to enjoy unforgettable sites and emotions. The flight will end with soft landing and lots of smiles. You can take your own photo and video camera, but we recommed you attach it safely on you. Most of the pilots have GoPro cameras and you can rely on their photos. The price of the pictures is not included in the flight. The purchase of a flight or a voucher can be done one day before the taking off.
