A weight limit ?
For safety reasons the limit for tandem flight is around 20Kg to 90kg. It can vary according to the aerological conditions and the capacities of the passenger.
I'm dizzy, can I fly a paraglider ?
No problem. Some paragliders are also dizzy. Vertigo is nothing more than an anomaly between the balance of your inner ear and your visual interpretation, you will only experience it when you are in contact with the earth:
ex: climbing / balcony / bridge / cliff.
In paragliding as in plane, no contact with the ground so there is no vertigo.
Do I need a medical certificate ?
No it is only required for people flying alone.
How am I insured ?
