  4. Do I weigh too much?

That is a little complicated.  All certified paragliders have a maximum take off weight.  For training course, that is the weight of the equipment, you and anything you are wearing or carrying.  The largest gliders we use, have a maximum take off weight of 125 kilos.  The aircraft weighs about 12 kilos, so about 113 kilos is the upper limit.

For tandems, we have a maximum weight limit of 85 kilos

For hand gliding training we have a maximum weight of 100 kilos.
