We will pick you up from your hotel. If you book a hang gliding flight over Riga as a surprise for your girlfriend/boyfriend or stag/bride to be, do not forget to take a micoSD memory card with you so the flight can be captured in photos and video. Please let us know in advance, and we will buy one for you if you need it.
The flights are happening from two different locations. On some days it is from the Daugava river, on some from the former Soviet airport. The area we can confirm only when you send us the exact date when you plan to do Riga hang gliding. You can choose between 10 min flight and 15 min flight.
It takes 10 min to arrive at a place where the flight starts on the Daugava river or 15 min if it begins at the airport. The hang gliding instructor who is an experienced pilot will help you to enjoy the magic of flight and will take care of your safety. After such a heavenly activity you will be driven back either to your hotel or the old town of Riga.
Both hang gliding flights are provided by one pilot. If the flight is taking off from the airport, then means on that day the flights from the river won`t be available and vice versa. The biggest difference is the flight route each of those two locations provides. Please check the map of the flight route and let us know which option you prefer. If you are fine with any of the two, we will confirm the flight offered by a pilot.
We can offer only one hang glider at a time and it is a two-seated (a pilot and one passenger). You have to add 5 minutes between the flights (for people to swap), thus, if you book 10 minutes flight, 4 of you will be able to fly within 1 hour. If you book 15 min flight, 3 people can do it within 1 hour. Please keep this in mind when planning your schedule for the day. We can also divide your group into smaller ones, the day, that while 4 people are at the former airport, the rest are spending their time in hotel/old town or at some other activity.
If you book a flight from the Spilve airport, there is just a parking lot 30 meters from where the hang gliders take off, where you will be spending time, waiting for your turn. If you want, the driver can take you to a petrol station (coffee/soft drinks or snacks) which is 800 meters away from the parking lot.
If you book a flight from Daugava River, there is a grocery store and a bakery next to it, where you can have some pastries and tea/coffee while waiting your turn.
