Preparing for Switzerland Paragliding

  • There are no prerequisites for passengers. The appropriate takeoff, flying, and landing instructions will be provided to you by your pilot during the start preparation phase.
  • Paragliding is permitted for passengers as young as 3 years old, although children and teens under the age of 16 require parental consent.
  • The pilot's team will evaluate if a tandem flight is possible for passengers weighing less than 15 kg (33 lbs) or more than 100 kg (220 lbs) on a case-by-case basis.
  • For the flight, you'll need decent shoes, a windproof jacket, and possibly gloves depending on the weather and temperature. You can also borrow shoes and wind-stopper coats for free from the booking agency. The pilot will bring you a helmet.
  • Dress for the weather. Avoid bringing keys, jewels, or other valuables because if it falls from your flying altitude, you can’t get back.
  • If you have any chronic disease, inform it prior to the team so that they can be ready with safety measures. 
  • If weather conditions such as wind, fog, or precipitation impair flight operations, you should get in touch with the pilot the night before or the morning of the trip to prevent making an unnecessary arrival.
