Near Saalbach Hinterglemm in Salzburger Land

The “Home of Lässig” is not only known for perfect slopes and mountain biking. Enjoy the region from the air while paragliding!

In summer and winter we fly with numerous guests of the Home of Lässig on the Schmittenhöhe because we find even more ideal wind conditions here, which can be reached in just a few minutes from Saalbach Hinterglemm.

Kössen in Tyrol

Every summer countless paragliding enthusiasts come to Kössen because of the good thermals, cable car and the complete infrastructure.

Kössen is probably the most famous flying area in Europe and has developed into a Mecca for the scene over the decades.

The difference in altitude is slightly smaller here than on the Schmittenhöhe and therefore a little cheaper, but the view of the Kaiser Mountains is second to none!

Tandem paragliding in

Bramberg Neukirchen

Oberpinzgau is also waiting for you with great flights from Wildkogel. Depending on the starting point, we reach the mountain from Bramberg or Neukirchen. The views of the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Großvenediger from the air will captivate you.

From midday on we fly on the Schmittenhöhe because the take-off wind on the Wildkogel no longer allows save take-offs.

Ötztal High Ötz

The Hoch Ötz flying area is located at the entrance to the Ötztal valley in the middle of the Tyrolean mountains.

Due to the large difference in altitude of 1350m and the optimal orientation, it has been popular with hang gliders and paragliders for decades.

The flight was absolutely amazing. I am 71 and did a tandem paragliding jump for my 70th birthday last year. The gliding flight topped this experience. There are four competitors for paragliding in Zell am See. I made the right choice with Falken Air and I was lucky enough to fly with Josef and Sepp, to glide and to experience the globe from a different perspective. The experiences in the air are relative or a matter of opinion. The process, support and execution of the tandem paragliding was highly professional and characterized by absolute safety. Many thanks to the entire Falken Air team around Sepp. I recommend that you take everything you can get. You will never forget the looping event. With the great, professional pictures and videos you can share this unique experience with your friends. Thank you again, stay healthy everyone and best wishes from Leipzig Lutz and Ludwig

On June 24th, I (74 years old) fulfilled a dream and completed a fantastic tandem paragliding flight with Falken Air. It was overwhelming for me and will remain unforgettable. The team was super friendly and seemed very competent. Special thanks go to the one and only Christine. "Christine, you are amazing!" Thank you for this indescribably beautiful experience. Best wishes from the Erzgebirge from Karin

It was my first time paragliding and I can say that it was nothing short of amazing! The whole process was really easy from booking to the flight. If any Muslim women in Zellamsee are looking to paragliding, I'd definitely recommend Christina. She was very friendly and clear with instructions, and didn't hesitate to answer any questions I had before and during the flight which made me feel really comfortable. Overall a very pleasant experience, would try it again if I visit Zellamsee again! Thank you Christina and Falken air!

My daughter and I decided at short notice to do a tandem flight. We made an appointment for the next day by phone. The weather was good and we had a great experience with our pilots. The pictures and videos turned out great and are a lovely memory. When we are back in Zell am See we want to do another flight. I can only recommend it. Great crew
