At SkyTour we are dedicated to fulfilling your dream of paragliding over the mountains of Mendoza. Unlike skydiving, paragliding does not need a plane to jump, but takes off from the top of a mountain to which we ascend by a mountain road on a 4×4 excursion. During the paragliding flight you will experience a mixture of adrenaline and visual pleasure where apart from the excitement of flying you can enjoy a unique view of the city of Mendoza and the foothills of the Andes with its incredible snowy peaks.

The best way to complement the typical wine tourism activities of Mendoza such as wine tasting, visits of wineries and vineyards is to fly in Paragliding. This activity can be done very close to the city of Mendoza. 20 minutes from the center of Mendoza is Cerro Arco, which apart from being a natural viewpoint of the mountain and the city of Mendoza, is also a place where adventure tourism activities such as climbing, hiking, horseback riding, hang gliding and of course paragliding are developed. At the foot of this is our parador from where the excursion begins.

Is it safe to fly paragliding?

Like any adventure tourism activity, making a baptism flight in mountain paragliding requires compliance with certain safety standards that cover both the professional training of the flight instructor, the certification of paragliding equipment and the safety procedures required for the activity.

The flight equipment has international approval from its manufacture and a periodic check in authorized workshops. Both harnesses and paragliding are prepared to withstand high loads, much higher than those of a normal flight. Each piece of equipment has an emergency parachute that is capable of supporting the weight of the pilot and passenger in the event of an emergency.

Among the security procedures to do the activity are:

  • The observation of the weather condition, this implies that there is good visibility and good wind (between 0 and 25 km / h).
  • The preparation and checking of the paraglider at take-off. This consists of deploying the parapet in front of the wind, checking the suspension and checking the anchors and carabiners of the flight harnesses.
  • Preparation and brief instruction of the passenger prior to takeoff and landing. Before takeoff, the passenger is placed in the flight harness with the supervision of the instructor and the takeoff procedure is explained, which consists of a short race in which the passenger must accompany the instructor running about 10 meters approx.
  • The mountain paragliding flight is based on a route previously established according to the weather conditions of the day and always maintaining the safety height necessary to reach the landing.
  • The landing is done in an area specially equipped for this purpose, this has wind sleeves that indicate the intensity and direction of the wind, so that the instructor can make a safe landing. Prior to landing, a brief and easy explanation is also made to the passenger of how he should prepare for it.
