I booked the Silver Flight in the evening hours and was able to capture the dawn light while flying over the landscape of south Tenerife. The Instructors were super friendly and I felt well guided and in professional hands all the time. I was nervous before the start but after my Instructors gave me clear instructions and calmed me down it was pure fun. I would book them again anytime. Great Team and great adventure! :)

As a commercial pilot I came across this activity in Tenerife. The idea of free flight being completely exposed to the environment decided us to do a tandem paragliding flight in Tenerife. After contacting several paragliding companies we decided to work together with Airsports Tenerife as they were very quick to respond, had availabilities on our chosen date and allowed us to use our own camera equipment (which others simply did not allow). Simon was very responsive to all our questions via whatsapp and gave some tips on what to bring and what to wear. He didn’t require a prepayment and we could pay after the flights. On the day itself we got picked up at the hotel. We drove to the launch site, got out and got prepared to fly. Unfortunately the wind wasn’t favorable. After 30min of waiting they decided to take us to another launch site some 500m further away while the other companies decided to wait for better conditions at the first launch site. Our new takeoff site was more spectacular with a steeper takeoff run (which got us a bit nervous). Due to a miscommunication my first takeoff attempt wasn’t successful. One of the instructors told me during the preflight briefing to “run run run”... which I did... pulling Simon behind me towards the cliff while the glider wasn’t fully inflated. Creating a dangerous situation Simon shouted at me to stop. I was a bit shocked by his apparent angry reaction but we sorted it out and, being a pilot myself, I could understand his reaction after being put in a dangerous situation. I asked for clear instructions on what to do during the takeoff and our second attempt was successful. The flight itself was S P E C T A C U L A R! While my wife received lots of info about the views during her flight... I received a lot of information about how to fly the glider etc. (much appreciated). Feeling the thermals, flying through the clouds being exposed to the weather,... it was an incredible experience. I even got the offer to take the controls myself... but kindly refused the offer taking into account the mistakes I made during the first takeoff attempt :-). The approach to land was stunning... having some fun flying low over the balconies of a nearby hotel and the beach chairs. Landing was smooth and spot on! The whole experience was overwhelming and superb... and since the flight I've been surfing the net for approved paragliding schools in my country. If I need to give a small "remark"... take some more time to brief the guests before the flight to avoid the guests making the error I did. I guess for most clients it’s their first experience with paragliding and we just don’t know what to do if we’re not being told what to do. Though I’m pretty sure this briefing is normally provided to guests  of Airsports Tenerife and it might have been forgotten for our flights. Anyway... I highly recommend the company. They clearly are pro’s in what they do!

Hi Jens, Thanks very much for you review. It means a lot coming from a fellow aviator. I´m so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the experience as much as you did, even happier to hear that you are considering taking up paragliding yourself. You are totally correct regarding the take off briefing. This is a difficult one to get right with all our different passengers. I´ve tried many different approaches over my 32 years of commercial flying and it proves more or less impossible to make a briefing that suits all. One thing we both know and are taught is that less is more. Too much information can cause confusion and even more nervousness for our passengers. The timing of the two phases during the take off, that is walking (the glider inflation phase) and running (the acceleration phase to create lift force) at times is critical. we do speak a lot about the most important part, the running and hence at times some people do bolt off immediately into a run even if we have only said walk. As you said yourself even our pulses can rise a little if we are on the edge of a steeper more technical take off. But i know you agree that the more technical and steeper takes offs are extremely rewarding for the pure experience factor. Thanks once again for choosing to fly with us and hopefully we will meet again in the future, maybe for some guiding here if you take your licence ;)
