We’ll meet at the Jakobshorn cable car’s valley station in Davos. Our launch sites are located at the summit of Jakobshorn Peak, which is reached by cable car. Once reaching the top, the pilot will evaluate the weather and wind conditions one more time before deciding on the best launch position. We can alternatively meet on the top of the Jakobshorn mountain in the midst of the ski area if that is what you prefer.
You already have a fantastic view from our launch spots. With a height difference of almost 1,000 meters, you’ll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the ride.
The passenger will receive a full explanation regarding the tandem flight, including launch and landing procedures, before taking off. To begin, you must ski straight with the pilot for a few meters until the wing comes above into the flying position and we are lifted off the ground.
During the flight, you can speak with the pilot and inform him about any particular requests you may have, such as taking control and steering the glider yourself, experiencing G-Forces during exhilarating maneuvers, or simply enjoying the scenery during a relaxing trip.
The winter landing location is near the Carjöl chairlift (within 5 minutes walking distance from the Jakobshorn valley station and the train station Davos Platz).
Warm ski clothing is recommended for the flight (including gloves and ski goggles or sunglasses). There are photos from the flight provided. Your cable car ticket (if you don’t have a ski pass) is not included in the price. The duration of the activity is approximately 1.5-2 hours.
The duration of the show is 15 to 35 minutes (depending on thermal and wind conditions). Skiing or snowboarding proficiency is necessary!
Davos sprang to fame as a mountain health resort in the 19th century, but it is now best known for holding the World Economic Forum—often referred to simply as “Davos”—an annual conference of global political and business leaders. Davos has a rich tradition of winter sports and is home to one of Switzerland’s largest ski resorts, as well as the annual international Spengler Cup ice hockey event.
