Tandem Paragliding in the Philippines : Carmona Fly Site

Good morning! I'll be off in a couple of minutes for a family thing but before that, I'm sharing a video I took while I was up in the air at the Carmona fly site for a tandem paragliding flight - my first one! It was amazing! The feeling is pretty much similar to  riding a plane with no floor and walls. Pilot is Buko Raymundo of AirSports Adventures  Philippines. 

Paragliding is a sport that is just about to take off here in the Philippines.  As of last January, there's only an intimate number of them and I think I've met them all. Hihi! They're  a fun and relaxed bunch and if you want to get to know them, join their Yahoo Group - Skysports PH

Flying is dependent on wind speed and weather conditions so there are times when the  activity needs to be cancelled for safety purposes. To fly  a paraglider, you're going to need to take a course (usually in Bali) and get a license.  If you want to get a feel of it before you invest on gears, do a tandem flight first. Buko's the only Filipino tandem paragliding pilot I know and he usually flies in a pilot from Indonesia to take other passengers.

I get a lot of inquiries about paragliding so I'm giving you Buko's contact information:
