Tandem Paragliding in Davos Klosters
High altitude flights, thermal flights, group and team events. Contact us for your individual offer. On this page we have summarized the infos and costs for paragliding tandem flights in Davos and Klosters.
Unless otherwise agreed, you will meet your pilot at the valley station of the Jakobshorn cable car and then ride together with the cable car to the summit, where our take-off places are located. Once at the top, the pilot checks the meteorological situation (especially the wind) and decides from which launch site to start. Before take-off, you will receive a detailed briefing on the course of the flight (including take-off, flight and landing phases). Our landing site is located in summer directly on the meadow in front of the Bolgen Plaza. In winter we land at the bottom station of the Carjöl chairlift.
For the whole flight with cable car ride and start preparations you should plan about 2 hours. The pure flight duration is between 15 and 45 minutes (depending on thermals and upwinds).
Would you like to take off together with your team? We often fly larger groups and can fall back on a large number of licensed tandem pilots. And should the weather be too bad to fly, we can offer a suitable alternative program through our partners so that you can still hold your event. Please contact us for an individual offer.
We can fly with children from the age of about 5 years. For maximum comfort and safety we have a special children’s harness (SupAir children) in use. With the Gin Yeti Tandem 3 we have a special small glider, which flies safely with very little load.
We only use up-to-date material, which is regularly checked and has good safety reserves. For example, our seat belts are equipped with a high-performance protector. All licenses and authorizations required by the FOCA (Federal Office for Civil Aviation) for passenger flights are of course available. For every flight we carry an emergency parachute. However, during many years of intensive flying I have never had to use it.
On all our flights your flight photos and a video are already included in the price. Your pilot always has a special action cam with him. In the evening of the flight day we transfer video&pictures to our dropbox and you will receive a link for the download. Alternatively, we will create a CD. During the flight you can also make your own videos or photos. For your SLR cameras we offer you a special airworthy bag. With it your equipment is optimally protected during take-off and landing.
Most important for a smooth takeoff and landing is to wear suitable shoes. We recommend to wear hiking boots for your flight. In the winter season a flight with ski or snowboard boots is also possible. During the flight passengers sit in the front seat and are therefore directly facing the wind. It is advisable to wear warm clothes (e.g. windproof jacket, gloves). We will provide a helmet for passengers. Of course you may also bring your own ski or snowboard helmet.
There are no age limitations as long as you have an average level of fitness.
Passengers under the age of eighteen years need their parents’ permission.
For take off and landing passengers have to run a few steps together with the pilot. During the flight you can relax and enjoy.
