Tandem flights are the easiest, fastest and safest way to experience paragliding for the first time...

If you can jog 2-3 meters, you can fly with us! After a ten minute briefing our professional tandem pilot will take you into the air for a flight that lasts from 15 - 30 minutes depending on flying conditions. The passenger (you) and the flight instructor each have their own comfortable harness. You are then connected together and finally connected to the glider. Two minutes later, you're airborne! Once in the air your flight instructor will explain to you what he is doing and how paragliders fly. If conditions permit, you may be offered hands on control of the glider.

Following the tourist expansion in Ohrid, in 2010 we formed our branch “Paragliding Tandem Flight Ohrid” and started to organise the first tandem paragliding flights for tourists in Ohrid - Perspa region. We operate during the summer period, from 1 June until 15 September (and beyond, depending on the weather conditions).

As a most reputable tandem paragliding organisation, with four years of experience in the Ohrid area, we have over 6000 accident - free tandem flights. Our pilots are highly experienced paragliding instructors, certified by the Aeronautical Federation of Macedonia (AFM). Please see our pilots’ profiles below.
