Description

Like a bird, we circle in the updraft. New mountain peaks appear on the horizon, the world beneath our feet becomes smaller. Now we also have the opportunity to take a little aerial walk. The passenger can decide where to go.

We meet at the valley station of the mountain railroad in question. Together we will drive up and take a 10-15 minute walk to the starting point.

After the glider is laid out, the lines are checked and the harnesses are tightened, we take off with a few quicker steps

We look for updrafts, often fly with birds, and just enjoy staying aloft. After a flight of about 10-30 minutes (depending on the weather) we glide down to the landing site, which is close to the meeting point.

CURRENT

Contact, arrangements (at least 3 hours, ideally 2 days before the flight) Determination of the take-off time, take-off place and landing zone

Meeting point Depending on the situation, the meeting point can be directly at the hotel, at the valley or mountain station of the flying mountain or at the take-off site

Takeoff At the launch site the pilot prepares the flight equipment and the paraglider seriously for the flight and puts on the seat belt for the passenger. After a clarifying introduction for the passenger to the actual launch procedure, it may be necessary to wait for ideal wind conditions. A few controlled, accelerating steps.... and we float away from the ground..

The flight - the pleasure! Enjoy the bird's eye view, let the pilot explain to you what interests you about the flight experience and inform him about your state of mind. This will enable him to take your needs into consideration and make the flight a positive, unforgettable experience for you. If the conditions allow it, the pilot will take photos and videos and possibly the passenger - if he also wishes - can control the glider himself for a certain time

Landing This is usually quite unspectacular. Since we land against the prevailing wind direction, a few steps are sufficient after the first contact with the ground until the glider is back on the ground. From time to time, the wind conditions in the Engadine make it necessary to head for an alternative landing site. In this case, pilot and passenger return together to the starting point after the paragliding equipment has been taken care of in the pack sack.

EQUIPMENT, PREREQUISITES

The passenger should bring with him/her:

  • Hiking boots, long pants, warm, windproof jacket, sunglasses

  • Ability to walk, possibly ability to walk a few steps faster

  • Minimum weight 30kg

Extras

If the conditions allow it, the pilot will take photos and videos and possibly the passenger - if he also wishes - can control the glider himself for a certain time.
