$109 for Paragliding Flight for One ($300 Value)
With a nationally certified copilot, patrons soar to heights of up to 8,000 feet on the wings of a motor-powered paraglider for up to 30 minutes. They'll float over the sandy seascapes of the Massachusetts coastline, changing altitudes and flight paths to explore the water's edge or the clouds' fuzzy underbellies. Before flights, all passengers undergo a safety briefing at one of several locations, such as Warrenton Airfield.
Paramotor Tours sends adventurers skyward on the wings of motor-powered paragliders. Nationally certified pilots adhere strictly to FAA safety regulations as they strap in for tandem flights, lifting thrill seekers to heights of up to 8,000 feet. To help ensure smooth takeoffs and landings, each glider boasts several safety features, including reserve parachutes, GPS navigation, and a pause button. Adventurers who wish to pilot their own glider can sign up for a solo-flying course, available on select days.
