YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

TANDEM JUMP OR TANDEM FLIGHT?

Paragliding with a passenger is called tandem flying or a tandem flight.

DO I HAVE TO BE PHYSICALLY FIT?

For the take-off sequence it takes a few steps of determined running from your side. You don’t have to be a sporting ace, but physically agile and in healthy condition.

I'VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE, IS THAT OKAY?

Yes. No pre knowledge needed. Your qualified pilot will give you detailed instructions.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?

Not generally. We recommend a minimum age of 8 years. There is no maximum age limit. This must always be considered individually.

I AM AFRAID OF HEIGHTS, CAN I STILL FLY?

Fear of heights is not an argument against tandem flying. Since you have no relation to the ground when paragliding, acrophobia has no negative effect in any way on your well-being when flying. Proved hundreds of times.

MUST FLIGHT DATES BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE?

Yes. Book your preferred date as early as possible. The number of participants is limited.

HOW DO I BOOK A TANDEM FLIGHT?

Flight dates can be booked online on our website. Quick, safe, at no extra cost. If your preferred date is not available in our online booking system, giving us a call or dropping us an email is always worth a try. For individual booking requests by email, please use our contact form.

WHEN IS THE BEST DAYTIME TO FLY?

We consider the body weight of the passengers and ideally fly in the morning with light persons between 25 – 75 kg, in the afternoon with persons up to max. 95 kg.

HOW LONG DOES A FLIGHT TAKE?

You should allow a total of 1.5 to 2 hours. The flight duration depends on the chosen flight, as well as on the prevailing conditions in the air. Our pilots always try to make the best out of the prevailing weather conditions.

HOW HIGH DO WE FLY?

At Tegelberg mountain we take off at 1720 m (5700 ft), about 900 m above the landing site. At Breitenberg mountain we take off at 1680 m (5500 ft), about 820 m above the landing site. Depending on flying conditions we can soar up even higher.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Dress like you’re going to spend a day hiking in the mountains. Sturdy mountain boots, sufficiently warm clothing (layers), windproof jacket, sunglasses!

CAN YOU FLY IN WINTER TOO?

Yes, we fly in winter too. To fly over snow-caped mountains and winter landscapes is fabulously beautiful. And comes with some special advantages: smooth air, crystal clear visibility, mostly stable weather conditions and prepared launch sites. For winter flights it´s best to wear warm ski clothes, thick gloves and sunglasses.
