Visiting the Venezuelan Andes is a breathtaking experience itself. But flying in Mérida is simply a must if you come to this area! The flying spot is located south of the city. During noon there is too much wind, so that is why we fly either in the mornings or afternoons. We can come to pick you up, and while we drive down, the vegetation changes to a more arid look. Then we start riding up a road till we are high enough to get a gorgeous view of the whole valley and the mountains that surround it.
Put your harness on, and the wind will work for you and take your feet of the ground for a lifetime experience!
Easy - Launch is close to where you park the car
Who can fly?
Any person who can walk without any problems, and is healthy, without any heart complications. We have flown from 4 year old kids (with their parent´s authorization), to 75 year old persons. You simply need motivation and be able to walk steep paths for approximately 45min to reach the take off. The maximum weight limit to do this activity safely is 95kg.
When do we fly? When can I make my reservation?
We offer flights during weekdays and weekends. If you want to fly in a particular date, please consult with us, if we have availability. If we don ́t have, we can suggest you possible dates. We recommend to make your reservation at least 1 week prior to your flight day. We only fly with reservations.
Who will I fly with?
You will fly with highly experienced pilots, that have bean flying for at least 10 years already. All have been licensed by the Venezuelan Paragliding Federation (FEDEVIP) and in some cases other international licenses.
Why do we have weight restrictions with passengers?
The paraglider depends on natural thermic and dynamic updrafts encountered on the whole day. With average flying conditions, it gets difficult to keep the flying time we guarantee with a passenger weighing above 95Kg. At the end, it will depend of the pilot`s judgement, whether to go to fly with a passenger of such weight or not.
A Paragliding flight depends on good climate, in order to fly well. If you are not able to fly on your schenduled date, due to bad weather, you can re-schedule your flight for another date, by contacting us.
