A tandem flight is an introductory paragliding flight. As a passenger you need no prior knowledge, just come with us and experience the world from a new and exciting perspective. Once the Paraglider is inflated and safety checks are done we take a few steps down a slope until we step into the air. Go paragliding & see the world from above for yourself. Swoop & soar like Icarus... without fear. Your wings won't melt under the sun...
HYA has hired the best pilots in Manali to ensure that you have a safe & pleasant tandem flight in secure hands. Our pilots, all members of the IPA (Indian Paragliding Association), have from 7 to 12 yrs flying experience. All the material used is imported & committee checked. The areas proposed have been selected for the exceptional landscape which they offer. Don't be surprised if eagles or other birds of prey accompany you on your flight...
Northern India benefits from a sunny dry climate favorable for paragliding nearly all year round. However November to march is normally reserved for winter sports. During the monsoon from mid July to the end of august occasional showers may break up the day affecting flying conditions.
