Hike & Fly - Moments of Joy

Tandem Paraglider Thermal flight

In thermal upwinds it is possible to circle with you in the airspace of the eagle.

In the summer, there are 2 different Upwind systems where we can fly up with the paraglider:

1. The thermals, which are air masses which flow by temperature difference, warm on cold, as in the fountain principle. At the base, which is the highest point of a thermal hose usually creates a cloud. In the case of thermal flying you always circle in the same direction to gain height. With very good thermals can be cranked on over 3000 meters.

2. Soaring, that is Horizontal wind which is deflected by a mountain upwards. In these winds, eights are flown to gain altitude. With this type of flying, you often have a large air mass, which flows calmly and steadily evenly upward.

Watch, ready, fire, go. This is our command at the food launch. We have to run together, the first few steps slowly and then get faster and faster until we no longer feel ground beneath our feet. AIRBOARN!! We sit together in our seats, so we can fly relaxed in the thermals. When turning up, the passenger has to help, you have do go with the pilot in the corners and the hand on the handle, to support the pilot a bit. So you are completely in the matter and get a better flightfeeling.

Passenger weight is from 20 kg -> 90 kg.

Thermal flight - above the mountains

Thermal up another 300 meters ...
... and we are on the cloud base ...
... over the mountain peaks you have a magnificent view over the whole of Tyrol
At the top of the thermal, a small cumulus cloud forms at the condensation point. This is a very good indicator of thermal movement in the air. This makes the search for an updraft a lot easier. On this picture you can see the dark forest very well, where the air warms up and leaves the ground over the white cold snow fields and flows vertically up to the cloud base.
The 2 dudes on the base, now the flight is in the middle of the valley ...
... and suddenly you have 2000 meters of air under your bum
