Hello, I'm planning a trip to Lienz the last week of June, together with my father.
He's 67 but really wants to take a tandem flight once more.
Can you provide me with your rates? How many days in advance should this be planned (to ensure of good weather)?

What you need and what to bring
What to wear ?
Long trousers & long sleeved top, sunglasses, camera, walking boots or grippy training shoes. As we need to run across slightly uneven ground it is recommended to wear boots that offer some ankle support.
I suffer from vertigo, is it for me ?
Surprisingly, even people who feel the need to hold on tightly in the gondola feel comfortable once in the air ! Like looking out if the window of an aeroplane, one feels quite removed from the void below.
Is it scary?
Passengers usually feel quite apprehensive at the launch area and then surprised at just how easy it was to launch once airborne. The launch is a gentle run down a slight slope – not at all a plunge off a cliff ! In flight we really feel supported by the wing and comfortably seated in the harness . We can make the flight smooth and relaxing or liven it up with some aerobatics depending upon the passengers desires. The pilot and passenger can converse easily during the flight allowing the pilot to reassure and keep informed, nervous passengers.
Age limits ?
No limits! Children as young as four years frequently fly but we will only accept such young children if we can see that they really do want to fly. Children generally fly in the early morning when the winds are usually light. Basically if you can manage a gentle run for around 20 meters then you are well suited to paragliding. For the less agile or heavier passengers we arrange to fly when the wind can help us a little, usually later in the morning.
Weight limits ?
Generally 100kg is our limit , though it depends a little on how the weight is distributed ! We can usually make special arrangements for sporty passengers up to 120kg. Please consult us.
