Located in New Taipei City, Mustang Paragliding Club is an aeroclub open Monday through Sunday for guests to visit and experience paragliding. Every customer who flies is accompanied by a club member who must have at least five years of experience. 

Since Mustang Paragliding Club is located on a mountain right across the ocean, those who fly can decide to either land on the beachfront or return to the original destination where they took off. Customers must pay 1800 NT and sign a safety waiver before being allowed to take off for a ten minute ride.

“When I first went I was really nervous before take off,” Mia C. (‘26) said. “But it passed so fast and after I landed I wanted to go up again.” 

Since Mustang Paragliding Club is so close to the beach and reservations are not necessary, I recommend anyone in the area or taking a beach trip to New Taipei City to visit the club. One visit at the club will only take a maximum of one hour at most, therefore perfect as a quick and fun activity. 

“If I go back to the beaches [in New Taipei City] I will probably return to paraglide some more because it was a fun and good experience,” Mia said.
