When flying tandem, you are flying with one of the experienced tandem instructors in Bergen hang and paragliding club in a paraglider designed for two persons flying together. It is a wonderful way to safely experience paragliding and see Bergen from the air.
To stay within safety margins our pilots have certain weight restrictions. The calendar will show if we have pilots available in your weight category. Additionally, you must be able to do a short sprint. In order to launch the paraglider you and your instructor will be running down a hill as fast as you can.
Standard fee is 2000 NOK. For video/photo using pilots equipment, ask the pilot.
In Norway, paragliding is organized through the clubs of the hang and paragliding-section of NLF (the Norwegian aerosports association).
In the extremely unlikely event of an accident, you are covered by the pilots insurance.
Sensible shoes and something to keep you warm. You will run to launch the paraglider, so wearing high heels is definitely not recommended. Windproof jacket/pants i also adwiced in standard Bergenweather
