Tour programme
- Meeting & Preparation:
Depending on whether south or north wind is blowing on the day of your activity, we'll contact you to let you know where to meet us. Should we have winds coming from the North on the-said day, we'll meet in Plataies and take off from Mount Kithairon. In case we're dealing with winds from the South, our meeting point will be in Kandili Megara, on the Pateras mountain. The meeting points are always our take-off sites, so you'll join us directly where your unforgettable adventure will start. Once we'll have inquired about the wind forecast, we'll contact you to tell you where exactly to meet us 5hrs prior to the start of your activity at the latest. If you're not sure how to get to the meeting point, please let us know and we'll explain it to you.
- Start and Flight:
After a briefing on the safety rules and having gone through each step of the flight with you, you'll be ready for the adventure of a lifetime! There's no need to run or jump for this take-off: all you have to do is take a few steps and you'll fly off to the sky. As this is a tandem flight, your instructor will be positioned behind you, allowing you to fully enjoy and admire the breathtaking panorama view. You'll be flying for 40min after which you'll safely land on our landing site.
- After Landing:
Once you and your pilot will have landed, we'll pick you up from the landing site with our vans to take you back to the take-off site, the initial meeting point. This allows you to drive all the way to the landing site and park there without having to worry about how you'll get back.
