Discover paragliding with a certified instructor by your side.

Paragliding Mountain Launch Tandems take flight from our grassy slope launch on Lookout Mountain.  Your instructor will guide you through the entire experience.

How it works

Wearing a chair-like harness, you and your instructor will stand on our sloped launch and, while facing forward, run toward the edge of and off the mountainside together. After a few running steps, you can expect to be floating blissfully in the air away from the mountain and will then be able to sit back in their harness as if sitting in a chair. Enjoy the amazing views along Lookout Mountain while your instructor seated right behind you controlling the lines of the paragliding wing above. When heading down to land, you can expect to slowly descend toward our large, grassy landing field. Your instructor will be guiding you the whole way on the landing process before and during your flight. As a passenger, you simply need to lift your legs up when instructed to slowly slide in while remaining seated in your harness. Easy peasy!
  • No Experience Necessary
  • Minimum age 10
  • Weight limit 210 pounds
When booking, you will schedule the date of your flight. In the days leading up to your scheduled flight, your instructor will check weather conditions and contact you to confirm your specific flight time.
To book your tandem: Contact our office directly at 706-383-1292. All tandems can be booked Thursday through Monday between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM EST.
