YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

I am over 90 kg / 200 lbs, can I still participate?

Sorry, no. We fly people with a body weight of min. 25 kg / 165 lbs to max. 90 kg / 200 lbs. There is no margin of tolerance here, due to safety and liability. The weight limits must be strictly observed!

EARLY BIRD flight: 25 – 75 kg / 55 – 165 lbs
CLASSIC flight: 45 – 90 kg / 100 – 200 lbs
ROYAL flight: 45 – 90 kg / 100 – 200 lbs

What are the considerations with children?

Minors need the written consent form from their parents / legal guardians (contract of carriage).
We fly with kids from the age of 6 with a minimum weight of 25 kg / 55 lbs.

Important note!
Due to the lower weight, flights with kids / smaller guest below < 45 kg / 100 lbs can only take place during smooth air conditions in the morning. Solely the first date of the day is suitable for this purpose:
Mai to August: EARLY BIRD – always 9:00 o’clock.
September to April: CLASSIC – the first date of the day (time varies).

What's the age limit?

6 to 75 years.

Do I have to be physically fit?

For the takeoff you need enough physical agility to run a few steps along sloping ground. You don’t need to be an athlete – a basic level of fitness is enough. According to our experience the older generation sometimes find the physical demands during takeoff challenge. Here individual assessment is recommended. In the case of any health problems we advise to consult your doctor beforehand. Unfortunately, participation is not possible with severe obesity or physical limitation.

Do flight dates have to be booked in advance?

Yes, as there are only a limited number of flights available. We have a simple and fast online booking system. We recommend booking as soon as possible, especially if you have a specific date in mind. During the holidays from June until September, it is high season with a waiting list of one to two weeks.

Can I fly with my partner at the same time?

Yes, of course! Simultaneous flights for couples is daily business for us. If two flights are booked for the same date (day/time), they will take place simultaneously. Flight dates for couples and groups should be booked well in advance.

EARLY BIRD, CLASSIC, ROYAL - which flight should I book?

Our guest are as diverse as each of our individual flight adventures. We offer different packages during different times of the day and flight conditions, to cater the right experience for each of our flight guest.

EARLY BIRD (25 – 75 kg / 55 – 165 lbs)
From May to August, we meet as early as 9:00 am for our first flight of the day. In smooth conditions and mostly still air, we float into the valley. A very pleasant mountain and flight experience, ideal for children, people of a lighter weight and sensitive passengers.

CLASSIC (45 – 90 kg / 100 – 200 lbs)
With our classic, we have many options to create your very own individual flight experience. Whether you prefer to glide smoothly, want to fly high into the skies or are looking for the ultimate adrenalin rush – the choice is yours! Generally speaking: in the morning the air is smooth, offering us very enjoyable flights. In the afternoon the air becomes more lively which allows more action driven thermic flights. For passengers lighter than 45 kg, schedules after 12:00 noon are not suitable.

ROYAL (45 – 90 kg / 100 – 200 lbs)
Our big air flight, we only offer during the time of day and the time of year with the best thermic conditions. Like a bird, we make full use of the given up winds and circle up into lofty heights. A full on adventure in naturally very lively air, combined with lots of action and movement, suitable for sporty people and flight enthusiasts (not for people with a weak stomach).

What is included?

✓ technical flight gear
✓ liability insurance

✗ cable car ticket (mountain ascent)
✗ Foto & Video Service (optional)

In which weather conditions do we fly and when not?

Paragliding is very weather-dependent. We fly in all weather conditions that allow a safe flight. Whether the sun is shining or the sky is cloudy does not matter. The wind may not be too strong and the wind direction must be suitable. We do not fly in rain or the risk of thunderstorms.

What is the best time of year to fly?

Winter, spring, summer or autumn – the flight experiences can be as diverse as the seasons themselves. Though paragliding in Allgäu/Bavaria has a special charm throughout the year.

WINTER
Snow-white peaks, peaceful mountain landscapes, crystal clear skies – that is the winter in Allgäu/Bavaria seen from above. The low standing sun creates a fascinating play of light and especially the calm flying conditions, with the air mostly still, is what turns winter flights into pure pleasure.

SPRING
The last snow together with the freshly blossoming of nature – spring bestows us with especially varied views onto the mountain and lake scape of the Allgäu region. At this colourful time of year the air is becoming more alive and offers us the opportunities for more extensive flights.

SUMMER
The warmth of the sun in your face and a cool air stream stroking your skin. Now the thermal winds fully come alive und the skies are painted by many colourful paraglider. Due to the holidays June to September is our main and busiest season. Make sure to book your adventure as soon as possible!

AUTUMN
Stoked by the colors, we float on the calm autumn air through golden yellow light. Clouds and mist create magical moments in the sky. Combined with a hike to the top of the mountain, the subsequent flight back to the valley promises pure relaxation! Our flight season ends mid of October.

What should I wear?

Ideally we recommend that you wear what you would for hiking in the mountains. Hiking boots, for stability and a secure grip on alpine terrain. Trekking trousers or jeans, a warming midlayer, windbreaker, gloves, sunglasses.

I wear glasses, is that a problem?

No, that’s not a problem at all. On the contrary, we generally recommend wearing sunnies/glasses to protect your eyes from the altitude sun and the airstream during the flight (approx. 40 km/h).

What to do if I suffer motion sickness?

Do not fly with a full stomach! If you are aware of travel sickness we recommend taking a travel tablet in advance. Please communicate any feeling of discomfort prior or during the flight to your pilot.

Can I take a camera?

Compact cameras or smart phones can be carried along, as long as they are secured tightly. Before the flight this has to be discussed with the pilot in charge. Please do not bring DSLR cameras, interchangeable lenses or telescopic lenses. Here we recommend our PHOTO & VIDEO SERVICE.

Where can I store my luggage?

At our Landing Bar (meeting point Tegelberg) you can safely store your luggage during your flight.

Do you accept vouchers from Jochen Schweizer, mydays, … ?

No, we do not accept any vouchers from third party suppliers.
