Terms and Conditions
If a passenger does not show up as per agreed date and time, then their booking will be cancelled and no refunds or alternative dates will be issued.
Passengers must be able to jog for 4-5 steps so the Instructor can build up a safe take-off speed before leaving the ground.
If purchasing a Gift Certificate for a Tandem Flight please ensure the recipient fulfills the above weight and mobility requirements and is of course a willing participant.
Before flying all passengers must sign an insurance waiver and SAFA (Sports Aviation Federation of Australia) membership form. This is done electronically on site with your Tandem Pilot.
Passengers under the age of 18 years must have a parent or guardian present to sign the insurance waiver on their behalf.
Refusing to complete the waiver will result in the cancellation of the flight and no refund will be given.
Suitable footwear such as walking or running shoes must be worn. Thongs, bare feet, business shoes or high heels are not allowed. Comfortable clothing should be worn and an extra layer such as a jacket, windcheater or jumper is a good idea as it can be several degrees colder at altitude.
Tandem passengers are permitted to carry cameras or phones but only with a lanyard attached to take footage. Helmet cameras are not allowed. Gold Coast Paragliding will accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to any such devices during any flight activities.
Gold Coast Paragliding will not accept any responsibility for any loss or damage to passenger items such as devices incurred though the use of our equipment during any flight activities.
Passengers are not permitted to fly under the influence of alcohol or drugs and if any Gold Coast Paragliding staff suspect this is the case then the flight will be cancelled due to safety and insurance requirements and no refund will be given.
Passengers should allow 1 hours from the arranged meeting time to allow for the signing of all paperwork, preflight briefing, actual flying time and returns. If participants arrive later than the arranged meeting time their flight may be postponed for several hours or possibly to another date depending on other customer bookings or changing weather conditions.
Tandem Flights are highly weather dependent and must be booked in advance. No bookings are secure until full payment has been received.
Gold Coast Paragliding will contact the participants on the day prior to the booking to confirm a time and location which will be set depending on forecasted wind directions and strengths.
If the conditions are unsuitable or change prior to launching we will postpone flights until conditions improve on the day or will arrange another suitable date. No refund will offered at this time. We simply ask for your patience and understanding that safety and providing an enjoyable experience is our goal and we certainly cannot control the weather.
Glide times average 10mins, but can vary depending on the conditions.
Tandem Gift Certificates are not redeemable for cash but can be transferred to another participant who satisfies the passenger requirements and has agreed to the terms and conditions of our tandem flights.
Vouchers are valid for 2 years from the purchase date.
Gold Coast Paragliding are a SAFA licenced and approved flight training facility and therefore fully covered by Professional Liability Insurance and 3rd party personal and property damage.
That’s it for the fine print. Lets go for a High Glide!
