EASY AS 1 - 2 - 3
1) Choose the Adventure; paragliding or hang gliding. You can even choose between a tandem flight or lessons to fly on your own!
2) Tell us when you want to fly. Select the date that you want to fly. The Adventure you choose will usually determine whether you will fly in the morning, afternoon or evening.
3) Book online - over the phone - or in person and Nice Sky Adventures will match you with the best instructor/pilot for your flying adventure.
We can even pick you up!
Nice Sky Adventures provides a First Class Shuttle Service for your convenience. We can arrange to pick you up at your hotel, airport, car rental lot or virtually anywhere. We will bring you back to your desired destination after your adventure.*
It doesn't get much easier than this...
Shortly after booking your Adventure, your tandem pilot or instructor will contact you directly to coordinate the Adventure time, the meeting location, what to wear and to go over any questions you may have.
We are 100% weather dependent meaning; the weather needs to be good for flying at the location desired.
We fly just about every morning some afternoons and a few evenings each week due to the weather. That’s why when you book your flight, you will be asked for some contact information and you will be able to set up a login for this website. With those, you can stay up to date on weather updates for your reservation and more.
If the weather isn't perfect the first time you try to book, don't worry! You will automatically get placed as top priority booking for the next good weather day. We will never let your purchase expire if the weather doesn't corporate.
Tickets are fully transferable too so if you don't get to fly while you are visiting, the gift of free flight lasts a lifetime! You could also choose to get a full refund if you book more than 3 times and get canceled due to weather. (We really want you to fly!)
Upon arrival on the day of your flight, you will be greeted by a member of the team to verify and complete all of the required paperwork.
Now comes the fun part; you and your pilot will gear up and fly!
After your flight, be sure to check back here for pictures, videos, updates and more!
*Few restrictions apply. All scheduled flights are weather permitting and are subject to rescheduling and/or issuing a transferable gift certificate good for 24 months.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is paragliding?
Paragliding is the simplest form of human flight. A paraglider is a non-motorized, foot-launched inflatable wing. It is easy to transport, easy to launch, and easy to land. The paraglider itself is constructed of rip-stop nylon from which the pilot is suspended by sturdy Kevlar lines. The pilot is clipped into a harness and oriented in a sitting position for maximum comfort.

What is the difference between taking a motored and non-motored flight?
With a non-motored flight you will take off from the top of a bluff, and with a motored flight you will take off directly from the ground.
Is paragliding the same as parasailing or parachuting?
Parasailing is what you do at a beach or offshore, in a modified parachute tied to a boat, not so popular in California. Parachutes are designed to be deployed during free-fall from an airplane and to then descend to the ground. By contrast, paraglider pilots launch from gentle hillsides; if the glider isn't flying properly, the launch can be aborted before leaving the ground.
Is paragliding like hang-gliding?
Paragliding and hang gliding are very similar in terms of the pure joy of flight. The sensation of flying either craft is very birdlike.
Is paragliding for you?
Paragliding is about finesse and serenity, not so much strength and brute force. As in rock climbing, women often do much better than men because they don't try to muscle it.
Is paragliding safe?
You can make paragliding, like most adventure sports, as safe or dangerous, as you want. The primary safety factors are personal judgment and attitude. You can fly safely for many years with the right attitude.
