The Ifinger Tandemclub Team

Experienced, committed & passionate about flying

We’ve been flying over Hirzer, Merano 2000, Vigiljoch and the summits of the Texelgruppe in the Vinschgau Valley since 1995! Our experienced team comprises both professional cross-country and acrobatic paragliding pilots. Competence and reliability are our hallmarks. We are professional tandem pilots with many years of flying experience between us; passionate and dedicated to what we do. We’re ready to offer you special, unforgettable moments cruising above the mountains and valleys of South Tyrol; a taste of freedom that only eagles enjoy!

“Tandemclub Ifinger” is an amateur sports club dedicated to practicing and promoting paragliding. We put you in touch with the pilots with whom you’ll conclude a contract of carriage. Please note that there is no formal, legal relationship between you, (the passenger), and our club. Only certified, state-licensed tandem pilots, in possession of a certificate of experience and insurance in accordance with the law can fly for the Ifinger Tandemclub. Pilots and flight instructors are vetted by us before they can be accepted into the team.

Tandem paragliding is a sophisticated sport and there’s nothing magical about it. We’ve been paragliding professionally for many years and you can count on our high level of competence and reliability. Our pilots are well-trained with hundreds of hours of flying time behind them. Your tandem flight with us will be an unforgettable experience! Information about our team can be found below.
