My experience was great! I was definitely nervous at first, but the pilot explained everything very clearly and was very comforting, patient, and aware of my nerves! It was definitely scarier in my head than in reality; the experience was actually quite relaxing and the views were amazing. Definitely would recommend and I look forward to doing it in the future!

Not having fun as expected

When flying in the sky, we were constantly flying in one spot. Just like you were hanging in one same spot, same views, no surprise. I expect we could fly around to see more beautiful views.When we were landing, we lost our control, both the instructor and me fell down to the ground, it hurted my face. It seems the instructor does not very experienced. In addition if you want to own the photo, you have to pay 60 NZ dollor, it is too much charge for it.Not having much fun.

Hi Christy, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your paragliding experience. It’s unfortunate that you felt you were simply sitting in one place while flying over 5kms. Note, flight path to the landing field at Coronet Peak is more than 5 kilometres from the take-off area so you travelled this entire distance during the flight. When you are high above the ground it often gives you the visual illusion that you are barely moving, when you are actually moving quite fast. You may have experienced the same illusion of lack of speed when looking out the window of an airplane? We have reviewed the photo and video evidence from your trip and it looks like a beautiful, sunny day with exceptional views out over the Wakatipu valley, Coronet Peak and towards the Remarkables. I can assure you that all of our pilots are highly experienced professionals and have all completed thousands of flights. After completing a full investigation regarding your landing we have not been able to uncover any evidence of an abnormal landing. I encourage you to contact us directly so we can discuss this further. Kind regards, Gavin Taylor - Operations Manager
