Tandem Flights with 4 X 4 Truck Adventure

Prices Gift Certificates

Your adventure starts with a short off road truck climb to the launch site (20-40 minutes).

Flight type : one high tandem flight

Prerequisites: Minimum age is 18, maximum is 65, maximum weight 240lbs. If you have a history of a bad back, ankle or knee injury, you should consider going lawn bowling instead. Landing can be quite hard sometimes. You must also be ready to run fast (more than 22 kph) while taking off.


Equipment needed: Boots with good traction and adequate clothing (winter jacket).
Course Outline: As a passenger, you will be required to run at takeoff and landing, but our HPAC certified pilot will fully control the flight, including takeoff and landing. For those passengers who want to continue and learn to fly solo, they may be allowed to steer the paraglider during the flight (depending on conditions).
Special Notes: The cost of this adventure flight may be applied to the Novice rating or Solo V, X, XV course.

How do I start?
Most tandem flight are done on the weekend (weather permitting)- please complete our reservation form specifying when you plan to join us. To save time, we ask that all tandem passengers read over the waivers shown below.

 

What happens on the day of my reservation?

All students and tandem passengers call 604 418-7328 (at 8am) to confirm the weather and meeting details, then we meet at either Exit 92 (McDonalds) , Exit 95 (Tim Horton's Whatcom Rd), or the Bridal Falls LZ (Exit 135) at 10am (sometimes later). (It takes about 1:15 hour to drive to Exit 135 from Vancouver.) Once at Bridal Falls LZ we check the flying conditions again. If it looks flyable, we will drive up the to Take Off (15 minutes in a Deimos 4x4 truck). Depending on conditions, an instructor or advanced pilot launches first, then our students, followed by the tandem pilots and their passengers. Tandem flights can be between ten minutes to one hour long (depending on the strength of the lift). Eventually we float down to the LZ landing next to the cars. This process, from the time we meet, takes about two to three hours. If conditions are still safe, we then head back up the mountain for more flights. In some cases, tandem guests may be welcome to join us for the 4x4 truck ride back up. We recommend that all pilots provide their own food and drinks for the day, however we usually stop at the local gas station for drinks and snacks. To save time, we would appreciate that all passengers and guests complete our two page waiver before you arrive at the meeting place.

Helicopter Adventure with Tandem Flight


Prices Video Gift Certificates

Your adventure starts with a short helicopter flight up the peak of Cheam Mt (7000') followed by an incredible tandem paraglide flight.

Flight type : one VERY high flight.

Prerequisites: Minimum age is 18, maximum is 65, maximum weight 240lbs. If you have a history of a bad back, ankle or knee injury, you should consider going lawn bowling instead. Landing can be quite hard sometimes. You must also be ready to run fast (more than 22 kph) while taking off.


Equipment needed: Boots with good traction and adequate clothing - at 7000' the temperature is around 5 degrees C, so dress warm.

For those passengers who want to continue and learn to fly solo, they may be allowed to steer the paraglider during the flight (depending on conditions). If conditions are unsafe to land at Cheam peak, the next option is Upper Bridal launch (around 4500 ' AGL). If this site is also not safe, we will be forced to land back at the airport - in this case there will be a $100 refund.
