Physical condition and other important information
The flight consists
in gliding down 5550ft (1.69 km) of height difference
which takes at least 20-25 minutes, if the weather condition allows it we
will try to fly longer playing with the thermals. The flights in the morning
normally very calm with a slightly better view than in the afternoon in the
afternoon it sometimes gets a bit foggy but this doesn't affect the flight
experience at all, in average we have in the afternoon
better chances to fly for a little longer (25-35 minutes).
The takeoff-area is very big and has a smooth inclination which allows us to
make an easy and safe takeoff.
The landing area is located 1.5 km direction north from malcesine
(15-20 minutes walk along the river) You can also take the bus to go back,
the bus passes by every hour.
Google Maps Location Landing Area :
There is also a big parking place between malcesine and the landing area
where you can park the car, so if you have somebody coming with you that
won't fly I will suggest them to park there and to walk 5 minutes further to
the landing area where you would meet them later when we land.
There is also an underground parking below the cable car station.
The pilots can bypass the queue at the cable car station only with their
passengers (only one passenger for each pilot).
PLEASE NOTE :
that there is lots of traffic on the main road around the Lake Garda during the
summer and that it's not always easy to find a parking place in Malcesine.
You should also consider taking the boat to reach us!
This year the paragliders can take
only one cablecar every hour therefore a delay from your side that exceeds 10 minutes might lead to the cancellation
of the flight(s).

is at the Xtreme Bar in front of the garage entrance of the cablecar station.
Address : Via Navene Vecchia 10
Please consider that there is lots of traffic on the main road around the Gardalake
during the summer and that it's not always easy to find a parking place in
Malcesine. You should also consider taking the boat to reach us!
Just choose a day and the time and if it is already booked I will suggest you
an alternative slot.
I usually suggest 11.00 am / 13.00 pm or 17.00 pm as first options
because in case of unstable weather this slots gets less affected due to
cancellation. With stable waether conditions all flights are nice at each
time of the day.
In case there will be more than one passenger I will organize the additional
pilots ( max 4 pilots/passengers each round).
to the fact that this wonderful sport is sensible to the weather
conditions I suggest you to book the flight(s) in the first possible day of
your stay, so we can try to postpone the activity in case of need.
In high season you
should book at least one week in advance...but you can obviously also book now if you want.
To request the
booking please contact us with sending the following information :
- NR of passengers
- Day and Time you choose
- Passenger's weight (Male max 95 kg / Female max 80 kg 'no exception sorry')
- Passenger's height
- Mobile phone NR.
- City or Town you will be coming from to get to the meeting point
Email adresses :
Please consider that your booking is valid only after you got the
confirmation from my side. No confirmation means no registered booking
yet ! If you didn't get a confirmation or reply within the next 12 hours
write me please back!!
early cancellation from your side (at least 3-4 days in advance) is
not a big problem for us.
In case you won't come to the meeting point, for whatever reason, please let us know, so we know what to do and don't
waste our time waiting for you. If you come to the Meeting point and you
decide not to fly anymore we would appreciate
a reimbursement for the inconvenience as we don't ask for a deposit.
Clothes and stuff you can bring
the takeoff is at 5774 ft (1.76 km) of height, and we usually have up there 10 to 15
degrees Celsius less than downtown at the Gardalake.
Bring warm clothes (according to the season), good shoes, sunglasses and
good mood! :-)
If needed we normally have an extra Jacket / Sweatshirt for you with us.
You can also bring your own camera if you want and make pictures while we
record the movie, your hands are free during the flight.
your wallet with you there is space for a small handbag in your harness.
condition and other important information
-The passenger participates responsibly in this activity by walking fast of
even running with the pilot, depending on the actual wind conditions at the
takeoff, that’s the reason why the passenger shouldn’t have mental
disability and should be physically relatively fit.
you are not sure, just ask us, and we will be glad to help you!
-If you know that you suffer a lot from motion sickness you might reconsider
this activity or take the necessary precautions beforehand.
You could per example get some pills against motion sickness at the pharmacy.
consider also that we fly also when the weather is cloudy a/o foggy.
-Please consider that there is lots of traffic on the main road and that it's
not always easy to find a parking place here in Malcesine.
obviously fly only in absolutely safe weather conditions in order to avoid
any kind of danger. This restriction can sometimes lead also to a ‘last
minute’ cancellation of the flight but on the other side we always land
safely and enjoy the flights.
Hope to see you soon!
Thanks and Cheers from Malcesine
