Then your flight will be cancelled FREE OF CHARGE and you will not incur any costs. You either book a new appointment or your original appointment will be canceled completely.

The fastest way to your booking is via our online booking system.

Don’t worry, all your questions will be explained to you during and after the booking. If you can’t reach us by phone, we’re flying. Just write us a WhatsApp if you have specific questions.

YES! We fly all year round (provided that flight conditions are good and cable cars are operating).

Especially in winter the landscape is amazing. In summer paragliding is known to many people.

YES! Normally, several self-employed pilots are available at the same time every appointment and day. You can see exactly how many in our booking calendar. (Attention: only 1 passenger flies with 1 pilot!)

NO! The cost of the cable car ride is not included.

You can buy the ticket together with us at the valley station. If you have a valid ski pass or a Zell am See-Kaprun Card in summer, your cable car ride is included.

The cost of the single-ride ticket is around €25,50 per person (+€2 for keycard deposit)

If you don’t have a valid ski pass or a Zell am See-Kaprun summer card, you have to buy such a single-ride up the mountain. The cost of the singe-ride ticket is not included in the flight price.

We meet at the landing site in Piesendorf (small train station) near Kaprun. Please enter the address in your navigation including the postal code, this street exists twice. Be sure to park at the train station and not at Sky-42. You can find us at the Falken Air Shuttle Bus or we’ll land right there, so we can’t be reached by phone. Please just wait +/- 10 minutes.

Adress: Kaprunerstraße 2, 5721 Piesendorf.

  1. by car to the meeting point/landing place / Adresse: Kaprunerstraße 2, 5721 Piesendorf
  2. by train (Pinzgauer Lokalbahn / small railway / Exit: station Fürth)
  3. by bus und skibus (Bus plan / Exit: station Fürth)
  4. by bicycle from Zell am See-Kaprun

We recommend that your family waits at the landing site. Here you can see most of the entire flight.

Unfortunately, watching from the take-off doesn’t make much sense, everyone would have to buy a ride up and down and after a few minutes we can no longer be seen. There isn’t enough time to see the takeoff and the landing. We also do not have any vacant seats for non-passengers on the shuttle bus.

Your pilot will prepare you for the flight on the way there and at the take-off and will explain how everything works.

However, running a few meters is required for the start. After a spectacular flight, we land gently again on the landing field in Piesendorf. When having problems we can also land seated.

No! No previous knowledge is required. Your qualified pilot will instruct you in detail and is taking care about your safety.

For logistical reasons, other meeting points are usually not possible. There is often a mix-up of different meeting points. We therefore ask for your understanding that we will meet at the landing site.

Our flights are suitable for everyone between the ages of 4 and 99 years. However, the passenger must have the physical fitness to run a few meters for takeoff.

  1. Firm shoes
  2. Jacket (in winter skiwear)
  3. Sunglasses

Dress according to the weather conditions and the season. Wear sturdy shoes with sturdy soles (hiking shoes or sneakers). In winter, we dress like we would go skiing. You get the helmet from us. In summer, a jacket protects you from the wind and cold, especially on longer thermal flights. We recommend sunglasses all year round.

Backpacks can remain in the shuttle bus during the flight, they have little space on a tandem flight.

  1. Wallet
  2. Mobile phone

Please, take a mobile phone with you so that you can be reached in case of weather changes or postponements. You also need your wallet to buy a lift ticket and pay for the flight and photo/video package. You can pay in CASH ONLY for the flight or with a paragliding voucher. Backpacks must stay on the shuttle bus during the flight.

Backpacks can remain in the shuttle bus during the flight, they have little space on a tandem flight.

For safety and liability reasons, you are not allowed to use your own action cameras or mobile phones during the flight. Your cell phone will be safely stowed in the harness during the flight.

Your pilot takes pictures and videos in HD quality with the latest GoPros for you during the flight. You can buy the photo/video package after landing for €30. The data will be downloaded directly to your mobile phone.

The maximum weight of the passenger is 120kg. It also depends on whether you can run a few meters at the start and whether the harness fits safely.

99% of people who say they are afraid of heights before flying are not afraid of heights at all during the flight. On the contrary, many are quite surprised at how comfortable they feel.

This may be due to the seated position during flight and the view forward, not down.

A little nervousness before take-off/flight is completely normal and even good, because it increases concentration.

99.9% of our guests are completely thrilled after the flight, how easy it was for them and how great the experience was!

This must be clarified and discussed with us individually.

By filling out the flight ticket you are insured during the flight.
