Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How is a paragliding tandem flight organized?
A: Select you desired date at time of booking. Because paragliding is completely dependent on weather conditions, the supplier will contact you on the evening prior to the desired flight date (by the latest at 8pm) to advise on weather conditions, accurate time planning, flight area, meeting place and time. On stable weather situations you will be informed earlier. Time and meeting point for the "Earlybird" flight is every day, 8:40am, at train station Grafenort (see departure description for more details).
Q: What should I bring?
A: All necessary equipment is provided. If available, please bring solid shoes and wind proof clothing with you.
Q: Why is afraid of vertigo no problem for a paragliding tandem flight?
A: vertigo is often mistakenly equated with fear of heights. In fact, anyone except maybe the people who works every day in high altitude are afraid of heights. During paragliding, the afraid of vertigo vanishes within seconds after the take-off.
Q: Does my age and weight matter?
A: Children over 5 years are welcome on the tour. High take-off weight results in a higher take-off speed. If your weight is more then 100 kg please consult your pilot first.
Paragliding is not a risk sport. Depending on wind conditions, it is necessary to make a few steps in alpine terrain. This does not require any special physical requirements.
