Tandem flight procedure

Meeting place

We usually meet at our store for a coffee and take the cable car up the mountain top. Make sure to add a bit of extra time prior your tandem appointment, that way we can talk about questions you might have in advance. You will also meet your pilot then.

Terms and Conditions

In order for you to have full insurance coverage, it is necessary to read and sign our terms and conditions before take-off. Your pilot will hand it out and explain the content to you before the start.

Briefing

In a short briefing before take-off, we go through the routine to make the flight process even more safe. Please let us know if you have any health concerns or issues, so we can prepare for it in advance.

Take-off

Just run for a few steps and off we go from the take-off site. It’s important to keep running until we’re off the ground entirely, not sitting down too early. You will see, even starting is easy!

Flight

Immediately afterwards you sit in your harnessed passenger seat, almost as comfortable as in your living room chair in „pole position“. Now you can enjoy the wonderful view, relax and let the many new impressions work their magic. For those who look for a special thrill, let us surprise you! If you want, we can do some acrobatic maneuvers that expose you to centrifugal forces like when riding in a really good roller coaster.

Landing

For you as a passenger, the landing is a piece of cake. If the wind is moderate and comes from the front, we land gently, almost like a feather. All you have to do is stretch out your legs and you gently land while sitting on the landing field.

SAFETY FIRST

Equipment

The material must also meet our high requirements, which is why we only use equipment from the best manufacturers. With an age limit of 3 years, we set our own standards that go far beyond the legal requirements.
We place great value and importance on securing our guests, so it goes without saying that we have taken out all the necessary insurance.

Weather

A true safety criterion, which also requires a lot of experience, is the WEATHER. Of course, we only fly at absolutely safe conditions, reducing any risk to the minimum. Sometimes this means that we have to cancel flights on a seemingly beautiful, sunny day – when the wind is changing. We are just making sure to always land safely and we can all enjoy the flights to the fullest.

THE FLIGHT AREA

Untersberg Kössen

FLIGHT AREA UNTERBERGHORN / KÖSSEN – THE PARAGLIDING-LOCATION

The flight area Kössen – Unterberghorn is probably one of the most famous and best spots for paragliding and hang-gliding in Europe. Being amongst THE HOTSPOTS in the world, venue for European and state championships in paragliding and hang gliding, mount Unterberghorn has gained a worldwide reputation in the competitive air-sporting community.
At the location Unterberghorn people fly all year round. With 1,774 meters at the summit, the mountain is one of the highest in the district of Kitzbühel. The take-off site at 1,500 meters can be easily reached with the Unterberghorn cable car all year round, apart from short seasonal breaks. Many Hike & Fly pilots walk up during those periods.

From the top station it is only a 3 minute walk to the take-off site, which is located next to the hut Bärenhütte. From up there the tandem passenger enjoys a great view of the Tyrolean Alpine surroundings and on good themal conditions also the neighboring Bavarian alps.

The Unterberg mountain is certainly worth a visit! Spectacular impressions of the Kaiserwinkl, the Kitzbühel Alps and the Tyrolean/ Bavarian mountain ranges are awaiting you. On nice days you can watch countless take-offs, manoeuvres and landings of paragliders and hang gliders.
What a heavenly, sensational encounter!
