How things work:

Meeting is the Mt. Swansea landing site for for a weather briefing and to get set up.
We transport you to launch on a scenic 4×4 ride up (it takes around 30 minutes). From the upper parking lot we have to hike about 15 minutes to the summit (100 meter elevation gain).
We introduce you to the equipment and fit you in the harness and helmet once we arrive at launch.

We are 100% wind and weather dependent and prefer to start in the morning around 9:00am.
Flights will be confirmed the day evening before based on the latest weather forecast.

The whole tour takes around 1.5 – 2 hours

The passenger cannot be over 180 pounds and need to be fit enough to run.
You need some good hiking shoes, windproof jacket, sunglasses and don’t forget your camera (with a safety strap so you don’t loose it while flying)!

If you have your own bike/ski helmet take it with you!
