Tandem Paragliding

OK all you brave, random souls out there.....let's go jump off a mountain!! Don't worry, you will have another human being and paraglider attached to you and I understand the landings are quite soft!

We have had to rebook as the weather was not cooperating for the last meetup.  The time can vary on the day depending on the wind conditions and there could be a morning flight and an afternoon flight.

Experience the thrill and excitement of paragliding without the need to undertake a full lesson course.

The flight lasts approx 30 minutes (this time is controlled very much by the weather conditions on the day) and allows you to absorb the sensation of totally controlled flight under the control of an experienced and fully certified HGFA tandem instructor. Paragliding Queensland are the most experienced and qualified tandem operation in Queensland and have been operating since 1993.

Cost is just $260 and needs to be paid to RSVP as I cannot book for us without payment.  I need payment by June 10th as they need time to book their pilots. Their policy is no refund but they will rebook you on a day that is suitable for you if weather conditions are unsafe on the day. If you would prefer to pay direct to the company please contact them on their website http://pgqld.com.au/html/tandem.htm then advise me via email or phone that you have paid them so I can add you to the list. (Let them know you are with Gillian Steele's group when you pay.)

Canungra is an hour south of Brisbane CBD and the launch sites are within 20 minutes of there. Passengers must not weigh more than 95kg and be at least 14 yrs old. If you are not too much more than 95kg contact Phil (nbr below) and discuss with him your suitability for flight and you may still be able to go.

The launch site/location is dictated by the prevailing weather conditions and everyone must contact either myself on[masked] or Phil the chief Tandem Paragliding pilot on[masked] on the morning of the flight for the final weather confirmation and launch site location.

      During winter the weather is not the best for this as winds are different than in summer. As a result, we will be looking at repeating this when the weather warms up.

    Hi Tracey
    The refund is in the hands of Paragliding Queensland as I have paid them the money. I will ask Phil if he will let me substitute your friends payment for another person so that I can refund her money. Glad to hear the 16th suits you. Can't wait as that will be the day before my birthday. Hope the weather cooperates!!

      I was going to book and pay tonight - is it easier for me to pay for the place thats not needed? Then I can just pay the person who paid? Might be easier than doing refunds for the organiser?

      Hi Rachel.. That would be fantastic if you could take my friends place. She would really appreciate it because can't go for at least another 6mths becuase if her back or possibly not at all and that's a while to have your money tied up too:-) Gillian is this allowed? Would be great if we could:-)

    Hi Gillian..
    16th suits me perfectly, only problem is my friend has needed back surgery since we made the booking.. So she is unable to do anything even remotely challenging to her back for at-least 6mths.. Last Saturday was supposed to be her last bang before her back surgery. Is it possible that she can get a refund? Or what can we do? I am definitely keen for the 16th.:-)
