How does a tandem paragliding flight go?
We meet at the agreed meeting point (we talk about it during the booking process) and drive up together with the Schmittenhöhebahn (lift ticket not included). After putting on our helmets and seatbelts you will receive an instruction and after a few steps we are already in the air. We will land softly on the landing field in Fürth (Kapruner road 2, Piesendorf, train station)
What is needed for tandem paragliding?
About 1.5h time / ski clothing in winter / non-slip shoes, long pants in summer / sunglasses. No paragliding experience necessary.

PILOTS / TEAM
As professional and state-certified tandem pilots, the safety of our passengers is our top priority.
Beyond professional tandem flying, flying has dominated our lives for over 20 years. Whether attempting new cross-country records in Brazil or the Alps, learning new aerobatic manoeuvres (acrobatics) or climbing mountains and then flying from the highest peaks in the Alps and our region, we are constantly training our technique and skills.
SPECIAL EXPERIENCES OF SEPP
- Numerous large cross-country flights in our Alps (personal record Stoderzinken 285km, Zillertal 276km, Antholz 246km).
- Various crossings of the Alps with the paraglider
- Very large cross-country flights in Brazil (personal record 425km)
- Hike&Fly from the highest peaks of our mountains (Großglockner, Gr. Wiesbachhorn, Hocheiser, Großvenediger, Kitzsteinhorn ski area Kaprun…)
- Passionate acrobatic pilot with constant training of new flight manoeuvres (e.g. Misty, McTwist, Helico, Infinity Tumbling)
- Skydiver and motor glider pilot
We are usually 2-3 pilots flying at the same time. That’s why you can book in your holiday at the Falkenstein tandem flights for you and your loved ones together. This will give you a great adventure together!
TAKE OFF, STEER, BRAKE AND LAND
THE TAKE OFF IN PARAGLIDING
A paragliding flight does not begin until all precautions have been taken:
- all harnesses are closed
- all lines are unknotted
- the paraglider is fully deployed
- the wind conditions are right
- the airspace is clear for take-off
HOW DO YOU STEER A PARAGLIDER
The paraglider pilot steers by shifting his weight and by using the left and right steering lines. When you pull on a steering line, you slow the glider down on one side and steer it into a turn. In addition, the paraglider pilot shifts his weight in the desired direction. Pulling on both control lines at the same time causes the paraglider to slow down.
THE LANDING IN PARAGLIDING
The perfect landing area is always free of fences, overhead wires, cable car cables, etc. and allows a smooth landing. The pilot lands with a running motion on the ground. Don’t worry, your fitness level doesn’t have to be high, running with the pilot on a tandem flight is very easy!
