Paragliding school in Heidiland

Paraglider taster day

Are you looking for a new hobby, or do you just want to experience the feeling of taking off? At the taster day you will be introduced to the world of flying under our supervision. After a short briefing on the practice slope, you will make your first attempts at take-off and small hips. Short, fascinating flights are the crowning finale. Trial days are also popular for group events.

Double trial day
On the 2nd day of the double trial day, the starting technique is first perfected on the practice slope. In the afternoon, after the theoretical instruction, the first high-altitude flight takes place, either as a solo flight or as a tandem flight. Attention: There is a chance that you have now found a new hobby, a new adventure...flying is addictive...
