Cape Town sites each have their own micro met & changing conditions can be fairly dangerous to pilots who are unfamiliar with the particular sites. It is recommended that all visiting pilots be guided for the first time.

Supply directions or transport you to the site (not all sites are easily accessed). Give you a full site briefing on take off. Assist with launching and if necessary supply radio assistance during the flight.

A retrieve vehicle will be readily available.

All the sites are options, depending on the prevailing weather forecast.

Paragliding with Birdmen is an absolute must while around the Cape! Barry and Candice are amazing pilots, guides, hosts, drivers, cooks and generally fun to be with. I would rate 6/5 but that's no option...
