Thermal flight

Usually we take off approximately 11.00 to 14.00 o'clock (depending on the weather), as thermals are strongest then. We fly in thermal updrafts (warm rising air) and win generally additional height.

  • Duration
    20-45 minutes
  • Höhendifferenz
    600 - 900 meters. By flying in the thermal updraft we get generally higher then the take-off place and win additional height.
  • Price
    Fr. 250.-- or 220 Euros. Funicular to get on the mountain included. To be paid in cash before the flight.
  • Location
    Frutigen / Adelboden / Kandersteg
  • Season
    March through August only.

In case the passenger decides to end the flight early, no reimursement is possible. If the flight cannot be extended to 20 minutes (or more) due to lack of thermal activity, Fr. 60.- will be reimbursed.

Requirements

  • Less than 100kg (200 pounds) of body weigh
  • Be able to handle the stress on the body equal to jumping down from a chair or a table

Equipment you need to bring along

  • A pair of good hiking shoes, ideally covering / stabilizing your ankles.
  • Regular mountain hiking clothing is suitable. As a general rule, it is better to dress for slightly colder weather than you'd think you need to. You can still loose that long sleeve shirt and stuff it in the back of the harness when we're at the launch site.
