FLIGHT WEATHER

Sunshine does not necessarily mean good flight weather. Conversely, a cloudy sky is not a bad sign at all. Often this is when the weather conditions are excellent for flying. Wind direction, wind speed and air stratification are the decisive factors for our flights. If the forecast is suitable, our flight dates will take place as planned (no contacting). PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ENQUIRING ABOUT THE FEASIBILITY OF THE FLIGHT DATE!

WEATHER-RELATED CANCELLATION

Reliable flight weather forecasts are only possible at short notice. If the forecast does not allow any flights, we will inform you 1 DAY BEFORE THE SCHEDULED FLIGHT. Please note that weather-related cancellations are due to safety reasons and in case of doubt this decision can only be made on the day of the flight. In case of cancellation by FLY ROYAL due to weather conditions, the flight price will not be due. Payments will be refunded 100% (money / value voucher). No fees will be charged.

SPECTATORS

PROCEDURE OF A TANDEM FLIGHT

At the meeting point you will get to know your pilot. You will have enough time to ask any questions you might have. After settling the paperwork you and the pilot start out for the cable car. Once you arrive at the launch site, your pilot will give you detailed instructions. After the safety briefing the flight equipment will be carefully fitted and the take off procedure practised. Now you need physical agility and determination. You have to accelerate on your own power in sloping terrain and must not stop running before your pilot tells you to. This is important for the success of a safe take-off. During the flight, pilot and passenger can easily communicate. The harness is save and comfortable. The landing is soft and easy and is made either on our feet or remaining seated in the harness (bum landing).

The cable car ride up the mountain is NOT included in the price of the flight. Your pilot will hold a ticket for you (No queuing at the ticket office).

At the cable car stations, companions must expect waiting times, which can only be bypassed by pilot and passenger (VIP entrance).
