Other questions

Weight range

We fly with passengers between 25-100kg (55-220 lbs.)

Fear of heights/ Vertigo

Experience shows that tandem flights are generally unproblematic for those with a fear of heights, as one’s relationship to the ground is non-existent.  We can therefore, with good conscience, recommend this adventure to one and all!

Age

We have no age limit.  We offer everyone the chance to fly, as long they fall within the specified weight-limit (25-100kg), and can walk 10 quick steps for the take-off.  Children area always welcome.  We’ve taken everyone between the ages of 3-88 to the skies!  For those passengers under 18, we need written permission from a parent or guardian!

Fitness 

If you can jog 10 steps on level ground, then you can fly with us!  During take-off, a few quick steps are required of you, but during landing, everything is in the capable hands of your pilot.  With preexisting medical conditions, please consult your physician before taking flight--and please let us know ahead of time as well.

Shoes

for a tandem flight, stable hiking boots with good ankle-support are required.  Please no sneakers, combat boots or soft boots.  If you don’t have the required footwear, we can provide shoes, free of cost--sizes 35-45 (sizes 5-13, ca.).  In this case, please let us know your shoe size when you call to book your flight.

Clothing

We’ve got you covered!

  • Coverall that you can comfortably wear over your normal clothing Sturdy
  • non-slip hiking boots with ankle-support
  • Gloves  

If you prefer to dress yourself, please remember the following:

  • Sturdy, non-slip hiking boots with ankle-support
  • Wind--breaker jacket (warm!)
  • Sturdy pants
  • Gloves
  • Sunglasses

In winter, wear what you would to go skiing.  A scarf, heavy gloves, and ski-goggles are perfect.  That way you’ll be just as warm as when you’re skiing!

 

 

Flight-gear

Your entire flight-gear is provided entirely by us, is regularly checked and updated, and includes:

  • Glider
  • Harness with protector 
  • Rescue (extra chute)
  • Altimeter Helmet

Licensed Pilots

All of our pilots are licensed with the state-required passenger-flight permit.  Beyond this, most of our pilots are licensed paragliding instructors, active as tandem instructors, and first-class in competitions world-wide.  More specifics on our ‘Team’ page.  And naturally the entire team is fully insured. 

Approved Equipment

We only use up-to-date, spot-checked material.  The glider is regularly checked by independent testers, much like a car inspection.

Insurance

Our pilots are all covered by a special passenger liability insurance, with more-than-adequate coverage levels.  This insurance is required for all active tandem pilots in Germany. 

Weather safety

We only fly when the conditions are safe.  What may seem like normal weather, can still pose serious risks for paragliders, so the decision to proceed with a flight lies entirely in the capable hands of your pilot.  Please note: your pilot may decide to abort the flight just before take-off, if conditions change unexpectedly.  Even if this causes you inconvenience, we hope that you understand that safety is our top priority.

Upgrades

Each voucher is upgradeable, and you can discuss these possible upgrades with your pilot on location--keeping in mind that the weather has to play along.  If you know ahead of time that you’d like to upgrade, please let us know with your booking, and we will try to accommodate!

Expiration

Your voucher is valid from purchase for two years, at which point it expires.

Insta-voucher

If you want your ticket extra-speedy, you can go for our insta-voucher, which you can print out at home.  More info under "voucher".

Year-round

We fly all year, weather permitting.  Every season has its perks: winter offers calm conditions, snowy fairytale landscapes and a clear view of the mountains, while summer brings with it lofty heights and lively air to delight the airborne.

Rendezvous

We’ll be in touch the evening before your scheduled flight, to let you know where to meet your pilot. Usually, rendezvous is at the Nebelhornbahn or, during peak season, in our shop right next to the station. 

 

 

 

Daily

We really do fly year-round when the weather cooperates.  Even on Sundays and holidays.  We’re reachable per phone or email everyday as well.  Between 9-18h, our office can be reached at +49 176 8429 8931.  During peak season (between June and October), our additional line in the shop next to the Nebelhornbahn station is open from 9-17h: +49 8322 401 01 87.

Reservation

In the main Season (June-September) its better to book minimum 2 weeks prior. In low season we are more flexible and a few days prior are enough. The more people you are and if you want to fly at a weekends the earlier you should reservate.

Telephone hours

We area reachable per phone and glad to help at +49 176 842 989 31, between 9-18h daily.  From June to October, you can also reach us at +49 8322 401 0187, or speak to us in person in the shop next to the Nebelhornbahn station from 9-17h. 

 

Cable car ticket

The cable car ticket normally not included. But many accomodations have "cable car ticket" included. So check if you can get a free ticket from your accomodation in advance and bring it to the flight appointment.

Photos

We recommend taking advantage of our photo service, so that you can concentrate fully on your spectacular in-flight experience, and then enjoy the professional photos and videos that we provide later.  We’ll give you your images on a USB stick right after landing, and you can take them home immediately.  If you want to take your own pictures, be sure to secure your camera in-flight!

 

Which flight to choose?

Our most popular flight takes off at the Nebelhornbahn station "Höfatsblick.”  This flight is quite flexible, and can range from a gentle glide into the valley, to an extended thermal experience, weather permitting.  More info under ‘flights.’

 

 

Spectators

Your family and friends can share in your tandem glory--we recommend that they watch from the landing spot, next to the Oybele, ca. 300m from the Nebelhornbahn station.  From there, they’ll see a part of the flight itself, and can watch the landing close-up.  Please note, for those wishing to watch the take-off, you may be faced with a long wait at the Nebelhornbahn entrance, while the pilot and passenger alone can circumvent this via a special VIP entrance. 

Marriage Proposal

There are various ways to pop the question in the air!  Get in touch with us, and we’ll be glad to help. Here’s a short video of our last flying proposal: https://vimeo.com/101845988
