Paragliding is an adventure sport using a lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft. The pilot, who sits on a suspended harness, launches the paraglider into the wind to gain height up to altitudes of a few thousand meters. Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover hundreds of kilometers.
The 20th PIHABF saw paragliders make history, after Twinz Acrobatic Paragliders Timothy and Anthony Green took off from a hot air balloon, 3,000 ft. up! They did it again in 2017 as a treat for guests of the 21st PIHABF!
Experience the excitement of flying high while enjoying unobstructed views through a tandem paragliding flight at the PIHABF! Using a modern paraglider specially made for carrying two persons; you can soar through the skies together with an experienced paraglider!
Tandem paragaliding rides usually last for about 15-20 minutes, depending on thermals.
Tandem paragliding tickets must be purchased in advance. Please take note that ride tickets do not cover the entrance fee. A separate entrance ticket must be purchased. A credit card is required for online purchase.
Powered paragliding or paramotoring is the safest and cheapest way to have your own flying machine. In this form of ultralight aviation, a pilot carries a motor on his back, which gives him enough thrust to take off. It is becoming a popular sport worldwide, drawing many participants from overseas into the Fiesta.
In the 21st Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, the Twinz Aerobatic Paragliders lit the skies with a paramotor light show during the Fiesta mornings and evenings.
