Dreaming about flying


Out and about with Manfred Lobenwein

Tandem PAragliding

Having arrived at the take off area, you will first be greeted by lush green meadows, a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and a glimpse of the gigantic Dolomites mountain range. Here you will receive some instructions on the tandem paragliding process after which your job is simply to take in your surroundings and be amazed!

Your tandem pilot will be Manfred Lobenwein, a highly experienced paragliding professional with over 25 years of flying experience. It is his job to adjust the seat belt system (like a large backpack), provide you with the necessary safety equipment and prepare you for your tandem flight! As soon as the paraglider is laid out and ready to go you will have no questions left unanswered, and once the safety check has been completed it is time for lift off.

Tandem paragliding differs from tandem skydiving in that you are NOT jumping out of an airplane! With tandem paragliding you are securely connected to the tandem pilot by a special safety mechanism. Upon take off, in the take off area the passenger is standing in front of the tandem pilot when the pilot gives the command 3-2-1- GO! At this point both you and your tandem pilot will actively move forward at a running or walking pace. After just a few steps forward your feet begin to lift from the earth and you are officially airbourne! Who would have thought that it was this easy!

As you gain altitude to begin to soar, flying high over the mountain meadows and forests- all you will feel in this moment is sheer joy and excitement, the feeling of weightlessness, boundless freedom is utterly unforgettable. Now its time to lean back, relax and enjoy your tandem flight to its fullest, see the sunny city of Lienz from a birds eye view and find yourself enchanted by the stunning views of the Dolomites.

After around 20 minutes of flight time, your tandem guide will seek out the runway and you will be gently lowered back to earth, landing is just as easy as take off!

Starting locations in East tirol

We take off and fly with you from the most beautiful places in East Tyrol.

Our two hotspots for tandem flying in East Tyrol are the starting point at Lienzer Zettersfeld and the starting point on Lienz’s local mountain, the Hochstein.

ATTENTION TO ALL PASSENGERS! The meeting point for each tandem flight is the landing site at the Dolomitenhalle in Lienz

Easy & without prior knowledge

A paragliding tandem flight is suitable for everyone. It’s easy and comfortable. You
don’t need any experience or previous knowledge for tandem paragliding. Anyone
who wants to fulfill the dream of flying in the simplest way can experience it with us.

Anyone can fly 0-99 years.

There is absolutely no age restriction for flying, only a minimum weight of 30 kg is required. Our youngest passenger was just 4 years old, and a pensioner aged 78 also fulfilled her long cherished dream with AIRTIME AUSTRIA.

Date and meeting point

You can book your flight ticket by homepage, email, telephone or simply give it as a gift voucher.
We set the flight day and the take-off site depending on the season, wind and weather
conditions and meet at the agreed meeting point.
Depending on the choice of take-off site, we will either take the Lienz cablecar or
drive by car to the respective take-off site.

Launch Preparation

Safety is paramount for AIRTIME AUSTRIA. Wind and weather conditions permitting, the adventure of tandem paragliding can begin.
The paraglider is neatly laid out by the pilot at the launch site and everything is
perfectly prepared for the tandem flight. You will be equipped with the seat harness,
which looks like a large backpack, and a helmet.

Explanation & Instructions

Before taking-off, your pilot will explain the exact procedure for take-off, flight and
landing. A tandem paragliding flight is definitely not a tandem jump or parachute
jump, where you jump out of a plane.
In tandem paragliding, the passenger and the pilot stand together with their legs on
the ground behind each other at the launch site and are firmly connected to each other
by a special device.
As soon as everything has been explained and there are no more questions on your
part, off you go!
Now your flight ticket is issued and then it’s time to board: It’s boarding time, fasten
your seatbelts. Are you ready for takeoff?

Take off - 3-2-1-GO!

When taking off, it is very important that you actively walk or run forward until you
no longer feel the ground under your feet. With the command 3-2-1-GO and only a
few steps forward, the ground slips away from under your feet and you take off!

The flight

Now you are in the air, flying freely like a bird in the sky and experiencing an
indescribable feeling with views that others can only dream of. The world is now at
your feet, you float silently above the town of Lienz and glide past the Dolomites like
the king of the air. This is what freedom feels like!


After a flight time of approx. 20 minutes, you will head towards the runway. Shortly
before landing, you simply straighten yourself up and your tandem pilot will set you down gently and safely on the ground.
