The adrenaline rush at takeoff, slowly gaining altitude to reach 1000 feet, the smooth free flight after releasing the rope and the smooth touchdown.
Though the whole flight lasts only for about 5 minutes its an experience of a lifetime. This tandem joyride is not very common in India.
The Space Apple team has been providing this unique experience for over 5 years now. This is a very safe method of experiencing paragliding joyride where instead of starting from a hill you start from the ground.
The advantage is that the terrain is free from natural obstructions like valleys, forests cover, electric poles etc. The locations are very convenient to reach and are motorable.
These joyrides are conducted either on a beach or in huge open fields depending on weather and wind conditions.
