Experience Soaring For Yourself
Anyone of any age can go flying with us! You fly with USHPA-certified professional tandem pilots. Simply call us the morning you want to fly to confirm the wind conditions, and then come down and do 10 minutes of paperwork. No reservations. Our Instructional Tandem Flight program is available seven days a week, 9am to 5pm, as long as winds allow. We have as many as five tandem pilots here on a daily basis so if the winds are suitable then we can take you flying! Peak flying hours at TPG typically takes place in the early afternoons between 12 and 3pm. All you need to do to make it happen, is call us the morning you want to fly, just to check if wind conditions are suitable, and then it is simply first come first serve!
HOW IT WORKS
- CALL – Call or check the weather on the website to determine if we are flying tandems. Torrey Pines is lucky enough to enjoy flyable weather about 300 days out of the year, so there's a good chance we are flying! If it's flyable, then come on down.
- WRITE – When you arrive, you'll fill out a legal waiver, which takes about 10-15 minutes. Then, you complete a one-page, temporary membership application with the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association. Once done, you pay and go meet your pilot! Your pilot will give you some ground instruction, and then you're off!
- FLY - You'll enjoy an incredible 20-25 minute flight over the beautiful Torrey Pines coastal cliffs. You'll get a bird's eye view of the emerald Torrey Pines Golf Course, the stunning La Jollan mansions, and miles of dramatic coast line. When it's over, you'll land right back where you took off. Very rarely, however, due to variable winds, we sometimes land on Black's Beach and walk back up.
