…is our pilots supreme principle! The FREEMINDS Paraglide crew is a group of professional tandem pilots who all have completed extensive training according to the guidelines of the Swiss Hang Gliding Association and the Federal Office for Civil Aviation. We all fly only with current, certified annually and professionally tested material and are insured by the Swiss Hang Gliding Association. Our Team can rely on the experience of several thousand tandem flights with happy passengers.
Paragliding is NOT a risk sport. Depending on wind conditions, it is necessary to run a few steps in alpine terrain. This does not require any special physical requirements but a minimal sporting attitude. We can not make the Earlybird flight with passengers heavier than 90kg/200lb because heavy load affect in higher take-off speed and in the morning there are usually little updraft. If you should be heavier please contact us for another flight type later in the day.
Possible accidents such as stumbling during the run for which the pilot can not be blamed are covered by conventional accident insurance or travel insurance supplements, which are generally recommended for travelers. If you are not covered by such an accident insurance, we can offer additional insurance for CHF 20.- per flight. It is the duty of the passenger to make the pilot aware of the situation before the flight. The liability insurance of our pilots covers CHF 5 million.
