Are you ready to try our High Performance Flight? Come with us and get ready to live the best life experience.
The High Performance Flight is the most popular flight we do and it takes place in Costa Adeje, Tenerife South.
We have two take-off available: Taucho with a height of 780m and Ifonche with a height of 1000m. The take-off is chosen by the pilots on the same day of the flight depending on the orientation of the wind and the current weather conditions.
This is a flight in which you try to stay longer flying and do it at heights that approach 1000m helped by thermal currents.
Depending on the site chosen by the pilots to take off, we can fly over the Roque del Conde or the Barranco del Infierno Nature Reserve.
Depending on the height we have we can fly over La Enramada Beach in Costa Adeje and land on it, although it is not always possible since we depend on the weather or wind being favorable for it.
Although we depend on the weather conditions the flight usually lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
In order for you to organize yourself with other activities, you must have available about 2 hours in total, since we also need to meet up with other clients, get on the take-off site, equip us and wait for the right time to start the flight.
We are never in a hurry so that everything goes perfectly.
There are no guarantees of landing on the beach. Our pilots do the greatest possible effort to gain height by flying in thermal to do the transition to it, although this is not always possible due to weather conditions.
Our pilots focus on making a fun flight with a very high level of safety regardless of the landing site.
We are operational from Monday to Saturday in three schedules:
First meeting in the morning is at 10:30 am, 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm at the afternoon. Keep in mind that these schedules may suffer modifications depending on the weather and the organization with other clients.
From the moment you make the reservation we will keep you informed all the time about any type of change.
We don´t have an office, so our meeting point is at the Parking above La Enramada Beach in Costa Adeje, Tenerife South. Here is where we meet with the clients and, after giving a brief explanation of how the flight will be, we organize ourselves with the van of the company and then depart towards the takeoff zone.
We always recommend bringing warm clothes even during the summer season. We usually fly between 700 and 1300m and the temperature is usually much lower than at sea level. On the other hand, the footwear must be closed and sporty so that it allows you to move in the takeoff and landing with total confidence and security.
- Warm jacket or windbreaker
- Long pants
- Closed sports shoes>
Once we arrive at the flight zone, your instructor will explain how the takeoff will be.Together you will do a simulation, he will equip you and make double check over the closures of your harness and equipment. Then you will wait for your turn to be located in the take off area and, when the wind is perfect, together you will run a few steps until the paraglider takes off the ground to start the fun.
Yes, it is necessary to run a little during takeoff and then walk at the time of landing.
The landing is a very simple maneuver that the pilot performs to finish the flight. Both have to stand up and walk when gently touching the landing floor.
Your pilot will take care of all the maneuver and will let you know when you should start to walk.
It is not allowed to come with video cameras, photography or mobile phones.
Our pilots are in charge of doing a magnificent job taking photographs and videos throughout the flight allowing passengers to enjoy the landscape without any worries.
Once landed you will have the opportunity to choose between various purchase options in case you want to keep it as a memory.
We cannot guarantee places in our van for companions as we depend on the reservations made for that day and time. We advise to consult with the organization about this availability.
In case the passenger is under-age, there is a place available in the van so that a legal guardian can accompany him.
In case of adverse weather, the company reserves the right to reschedule the flight for another day or time or its total cancellation. In these circumstances, flights that cannot be rescheduled will be 100% refund.
Please consult our cancellation policy for other cases.

It is very important that in your reservation you inform us correctly your telephone number, with the country code, to contact you if necessary.
