15-, 30- or 45-minute flight over the Valais
Tandem flight with an experienced paraglider pilot
Start from Rosswald, at 2300 m.a.s.l.
View over the whole Rhone valley to the Simplon
Landing on the Chavez meadow
The canton of Valais is probably the sunniest region in Switzerland. This region is known for its special thermal conditions that will help you take off with your paraglider! All this without effort from a comfortable sitting position with your pilot: a true paragliding dream
The Airvolution team will pick you up at the train station in Brig and take you to the launch site, where your pilot will instruct you and secure you so that your flight goes smoothly. Your paragliding tandem flight will be an unforgettable experience! In winter, you can even take off with your skis and experience the Valais mountains under a magical mantle of snow.
The starting point is the mountain station of Rosswald at 2300 m. Ü. M.. The Rosswald is known as the sun terrace above Brig, from where you already have a spectacular view of the Rhone valley to the Simplon at the start!
During the flight you will enjoy the fresh air on your face and the unrestricted view of the Valais mountain scenery. One of the biggest highlights is the almost silent gliding through the air
The flight time is 15, 30 or 45 minutes, depending on which offer you choose. After the flight, you land in Bitsch, where the Matterhorn-Gotthard railroad station is located in the immediate vicinity. The landing takes place on the historic Chavez meadow, from where Geo Chavez was the first person to cross the main ridge of the Alps in an airplane in 1910!
For this special paragliding experience you don't need any previous knowledge or special equipment. Your pilot from the flight school Airvolution will do it for you! All you need is a good portion of courage and before you know it, your feet are already dangling in the air.
It is highly recommended to plan your flight in advance, because depending on the weather conditions, it may be that the launch site has to be moved!
IMPORTANT INFO: Depending on wind conditions, the booked flight may be moved to another launch site. Sufficient sun protection and wind protection (windbreaker) is recommended!
Sun protection with minimum factor 30 - 50
Sunglasses with UV protection
In winter you can fly with skis (bring your own skis!).
For the train ride to the launch site, you should definitely have some change, your GA or your half-fare card with you!
EXTRA PHOTOS: On request, photos and film recordings of the flight can be made! Your pilot will take 15 to 25 photos and shoot 2 to 4 videos, each 1 - 2 minutes long. You will receive a copy for 30.- CHF, as a download by mail or directly to your smartphone.
MEETING POINT If you arrive by public transport, the Airvolution team will pick you up at the train station in Brig! If you are already in the region or are arriving by car, you can meet the team right at the valley or mountain station.
