Paragliding

A bird's-eye perspective

Soaring like a bird high above the enchanting landscape is an indescribable feeling. Gerlos in the Zillertal is one of the most beautiful flying areas in the heart of the Alps and offers a gorgeous natural panorama. Enjoy unlimited freedom at an elevation of 2500 m. This is a true adventure for all ages!

Experienced tandem pilots

Hannes Hauser, manager of Kalle Airline, has been flying alone since 1993 and works exclusively with experienced tandem pilots. Safety is the top priority here! Paragliding is a sport that is very dependent on weather conditions. That is why we pay close attention to weather forecasts and obtain detailed information about the weather. Due to this dependence on the weather, we can inform our guests where and when the flight will take place up to 2 or 3 days in advance.

Requirements

As a passenger, you do not need any tandem flying experience. The ideal weight for a tandem paragliding flight is between 20 and 100 kilos. It's a fun adventure for both young and old! Children as young as 5 years old can fly with you. So far, Hannes' oldest flight companion was 70 years old.

 

Equipment

 

Take-off & landing

At the take-off site, the pilot will explain the take-off procedure and adjust the harness accordingly, and you will receive a suitable helmet. The pilot will then lay out the wing of the paraglider and conduct another safety check. After running only a few steps together, you will take off, and the pilot will instruct you to sit comfortably in the harness. 

You will sit in front of the pilot so that you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the Zillertal mountains. Experience pure freedom as you soar through the air like a bird. The pilot will prepare you in advance for the landing and guide you step by step.

Price & gift certificates
