Paragliding is one of the best way to enjoy Switzerland. Let’s fly.
This sport is unimaginably versatile, variable and fascinating. No flight is like another. In fact, due to the different seasons, weather conditions, thermal conditions every flight in Switzerland is simply unique.
No matter if panorama flight, thermic flight or even kunstflug; paragliding is always a special affair. In order for everything to run smoothly, a few preparations are necessary. No matter if as a solo pilot or on the way with the tandem. Let’s say you fly with a pilot.
You should first check the weather, good weather clarification is absolutely essential. No previous knowledge is necessary at all. Your pilot will explain the safety and the rules, the positions and what to expect before the start. The physical demands are low and a normal fitness is completely sufficient. If you can run a few steps, you can also do paragliding. There is no minimum age for passenger flights. Until the age of majority, only the consent of the legal guardian is needed. Some providers have special small tandem gliders at their disposal so that even the youngest guests can experience the fascination of flying.
And what about fear of heights?
Anyone who can ride a chairlift will not be afraid of paragliding either. In summer you take good, ankle-high shoes, a light windbreaker or a sweater with you. In winter good ankle-high boots, warm jacket, and trousers or ski suit and gloves. Photographs can be taken during the passenger flight, during the whole flight the hands are free. If you wish, the pilot can also take photos or videos with a special camera.
The pilot will be happy to give you the steering wheel in a quiet minute. If you are interested in paragliding, he will be happy to answer your questions about equipment and training. At the paraglider taster day, you already fly a few meters above ground and steer the paraglider yourself. Of course always with the support of the flight instructor.
Flying is possible all year round, except for the thermal flight, which only takes place from April to August due to thermal conditions. Paragliding is not considered a high-risk sport and is included in the insurance in Switzerland (if you live here). Students from abroad as well as non-employed persons must have their accident insurance confirm that paragliding is included.
