Tandem paragliding: - Preconditions
As a matter of principle we are trying to offer this extraordinary flying experience to everybody who is interested. It is not necessary to have any special predispositions or knowledge. Nevertheless you should be able to run a few steps for takeoff and landing. Your body weight should not be more than 120 kg (18 stone). When booking, please inform us if you are over 100 kg (15 stone) so that we can adjust our equipment for your requirements. It is also possible for children to take part in tandem paragliding – as long as there is parental consent.
How should I be equipped?
As there are quite big temperature differences we recommend layers of light but warm shirts/sweaters mixed with a windproof on top, a pair of warm gloves, and footwear that gives you excellent ankle support and grip. It should also keep your feet warm and dry. To protect your eyes form the sun and wind you should bring glasses. All the rest of the equipment is provided by us: paraglider, paragliding harness, a suitable paragliding helmet, rescue apparatus.
Tandem paragliding: The preparations and takeoff
At the appointed time you and your paragliding pilot go up the mountain by cable car. You get detailed instructions about tandem paragliding. After that the preparations for takeoff are made. The pilot checks all the parameters for the takeoff and gives the last instructions. After starting to run, the pilot pulls up the paraglider and after a few more steps you and the pilot softly take off of the slope.
Our takeoff-areas for the tandem paragliding flights are primarily at lake Achensee. In Maurach we use the cable car of Rofanbahn located at Achensee-Bundes-strasse B181 to get up to the top of the mountain. In Pertisau we use the cable car of Karwendel-bahn to get to the top of the mountain. In winter we use the lifts of the ski resort Christlum Achenkirch – Achensee.
Tandem paragliding with groups
To share special experiences and impressions with friends or colleagues is often described by many of our guests as "the best feeling to have". We are glad to offer shared tandem paragliding experiences by either taking off at the same time or taking off one after the other with several tandem pilots. If the thermal allows for it, taking photos of one another during the flight is possible. For larger groups we offer the necessary number of experienced tandem paragliding pilots.
