LEARN TO SPEED FLY

What is speed flying?

Speed wings are very small paragliders that are designed to follow the terrain and not fly out away from it. By doing this we are able to fly close to the ground and switch from skiing to flying and back again. It also allows us to ski off cliffs.

OBJECTIVE

To learn to speed fly.

DATES

Every day from December – April. Courses can only run when snow conditions are good enough to enable a safe course to be run.

NOT INCLUDED

  • Personal accident insurance.
  • Skis or lift pass.

WHO CAN LEARN TO SPEED FLY?

Wings vary in size and expert pilots can use extremely small sizes enabling us to exceed a speed of 120km/h. Due to new regulations in Switzerland, you are required to have a paragliding license before you can start this course.  ​ You do not need to be an expert skier for this course, however, a high level of paragliding is important.

"Incredible scenery and some of the best flying i have had with the backdrop of the alps."
