The Parafly Story
From the beginnings until today
How it began…
In 1986 Hans-Peter and Monika Eller founded the paragliding school Parafly Stubaital GmbH in Neustift im Stubaital. Hans-Peter decided to turn his hobby into his profession: from teacher to paragliding instructor. Also, Monika quit her job and began working on the joint “airy”venture. This is how they also became a team on the job.
Opening of the office with a shop in Neustift im Stubaital as a central place to go for aviation enthusiasts. At this time, paragliding was still in its infancy.
First safety training with paragliders above the Achensee. Back then they got skeptical views of competitors. Soon, the safety training became a fixed component in the training of paragliding pilots.
Hans-Peter becomes a member of the Austrian National team.
Monika successfully completed her training to become a registered paragliding instructor.
Florina was born! On 31 August 1991 the Parafly team was blessed with a little paragliding angel.
Founding of the repair service: Reserve parachutes and paragliders could be checked and repaired.
We started our first Parafly tours in Europe and even in Turkey.
The Parafly-Taxi was approved by the Ministery of Transport.
With a tandem flight, even people without any experience can get an understanding and feeling of flying.
Parafly has a website.
Johanna! The youngest Parafly paragliding angel was born on 22 January
Hans-Peter Eller, founder of Flugschule Parafly Stubaital GmbH was killed as a passenger in a car accident. After a horrible start to the year, 2006 turned into a successful business year. Monika Eller continued the business on the same high standard as Hans-Peter Eller started it.
