Wind and weather are important factors in paragliding, which is difficult to predict, especially in the Alps. As a result, we decide whether the flight can take place the day before. In the event of inclement weather, we will contact you and attempt to reschedule the appointment for a better time/day. To use this special service, we kindly ask that you be available at the cell phone number or e-mail address you provided during the booking process.
