FAQs Tandem Flights
After making a booking/reservation we meet directly at the landing site in our paragliding school in Neustift. Here, you will meet your pilot and get to gondola to the take-off site.
Before the flight, each passenger gets a short instruction from the pilot and the paraglider will be prepared. Then, your pilot will attach himself/herself and you to the paraglider. To take off, we’ll have to walk a few steps.
After landing at the paragliding school, we pack our paraglider and you will receive a personalised diploma and your photos/video if applicable.
Meeting point is at our paragliding school next to the landing site in Neustift. If necessary, we can also agree on a different meeting point.
