First What is Paragliding?

Paragliding is an adventure sport where a person glides through the air using a wide canopy, a fabric wing that’s made up of a large number of interconnected cells. In paragliding, the pilot “takes off” from an elevated position, usually the top of a hill or mountain, then uses wind forces to help him maintain flight — sometimes even gaining altitudes! Throughout the flight, the pilot sits in a harness suspended below the wing.

Trek up to the spot

Good things never come easy, it was true in this case. To jump off the mountain you need to go up to the spot first. So from the mainland, you need to trek up to the jump zone. or on our case, our guide will drive you up, depending on the location you chose to paraglide. I was too excited and at the same time a bit nervous.

About after 10-15 minutes, finally reached the launch spot. There were other paragliders launching off, I was all set to fly in few minutes 🙂

Preparing for the flight

At the jump zone, they got an indemnity form signed, in case you meet an accident you are responsible for the same 😉 This was important as paragliding is an extreme sport and it may risk your life or chances of getting injured.

After that got a short briefing and explanation and got geared up and strapped to the parachute and the instructor.

At the Edge

Standing at the edge of the mountain and looking down the world was an experience hard to explain in words.

Though taking off was much easier than I thought! Just a few steps running down the hill and in the air!

The Flight

And so after a short run, we started flying, with the force of the wind. Admiring the mountains around us It was a magnificent view and a very exciting experience to be so high up in the sky. The world felt tiny and the sky was the limit. Thrilling!!!

During the flight had a chit chat with the pilot about how long he is flying, from where is he trained etc. He taught me some techniques too and let me drive. It was a short paragliding learning session for me up in the air 😉

Furthermore, the parachute steered into a downward spiral. It felt like being on a rollercoaster, but better! It was so much fun!

Safe Landing

Then we started to descend, slowly. The way to land for paragliding is similar to take off. And finally landed safely with both feet on the ground.

FAQs

How can I book
You can either contact us by telephone at +961 71 941100, write us an e-mail, or book directly via our Website
How long in advance must I book?
In order to avoid waiting during the high season, we recommend you to reserve in good time (2 days in advance). For short notice bookings, please call us directly.
Are there weight limits?
We fly with passengers from 20kg to 95kg.
What is the maximum age to be able to enjoy a tandem flight?
The age is irrelevant as long as you are fit and are able to do a couple of fast steps on the ground. The two oldest passengers were 79 and 83 years old and they wanted to fly again immediately.
How young am I allowed to be?
Legally there is no age restriction on passengers. We fly with young persons who weigh at least 20 kg, though children and adolescents up to the age of 18 need the signature of their parents or legal guardian on their ticket. Many of our passengers are under 18, our youngest passenger was 4 years old.
How long does a tandem flight take?
We start from the most beautiful Carinthian mountains, and we are therefore dependent on the weather. The glide down from the takeoff takes about 10 min. With good thermal conditions, the pilots will use the updraft to rise and so the flight can be extended to 5-10 minutes.
Can I control the glider myself?
If you want to maneuver the glide yourself, ask our pilots and if the conditions are good you will be able to make some circles over the Ossiacher Lake yourself.
How do I land with a tandem?
The pilot will fly into position over the landing area in order to lose height; he then steers the paraglider into an opposing approach, the base leg, and then starts with the final approach. In the final approach, the chute will be slowed down, and depending on the wind you will need to run a couple of fast steps. The more wind there is the softer and slower the landing will be
Can I take pictures or film during the flight?
Of course, you can document your flight with your own camera, but some passengers are so busy taking pictures they miss the actual experience. we offer you a photo service with video and photographs during the flight for 30$ on cd.
Can I fly with friends and family at the same time?
our team consists of 4 permanent pilots who are assisted by 3 other pilots at peak time. With groups please apply in good time (note our group discounts).
Are glasses or contact lenses a problem when paragliding?
No, you can wear your optical glasses or contact lenses, but we recommend an additional pair of sunglasses as the wind (ca.35km / h) and the sun can be distracting.
When is the best time of year to fly?
Most passengers tend to prefer warm seasons when the landscape is very attractive.
Is paragliding dangerous?
In the last decades, the paraglider has become a very safe flying device. For tandem paragliding flights only simple and therefore very safe chutes are used. In the hands of a responsible and experienced pilot, they provide a unique opportunity to fly. As in any type of sport, there is always a residual risk, most injuries (sprains, bruises) happen when you are running for take-off. Since it was founded in 2000, tandem-air has had no accidents whatsoever.
