It should have been 2 weeks in October 2014 when I first came to Lake Garda for paragliding safety trainings as camera operator. Turned out that I never really left again. Working in the paragliding world and for SIVs became a steady job.

After some tandem flights with Heli in spring 2015 I can briefly accuse him for having the paragliding virus. This means trying to get airborne when ever it’s flyable, dancing in the sky with my glider, having fun and become a better pilot.

The mediterranean lifestyle and numerous outdoor sport activities around Lake Garda make me fall in love with this place. Malcesine became my second home, also for all the people turning from buddies into real good friends not only celebrating airtime together.

Living and working with endearing people in a perfect surrounding is simply the best, to share this with others is even on top.

Growing up with the alps in front of my doorstep, I have been spending a lot of time in the mountains. When I saw a pilot launch with his glider, playing with the winds and the thermals I also wanted to fly straight away.

The moment I started with paragliding I was hooked for life as I felt that there is nothing else more satisfying than to go up into the air, feel like a free bird and leave all matters behind.

Finally I became a Skyperformance instructor in basic and advanced paragliding teaching others how to fly safely next to being a tandem-/ and full time pilot competing in hike & fly events.

I enjoy the diversity of this sport whether it is freestyle, xc, speedflying or hike & fly and feel happy to say I can do all of it with a great team and at my chosen residence: Lago di Garda.

The location with its community, lifestyle and perfect infrastructure allows you to do all of the things mentioned above and the days just seem to ‘’fly by’’.

A perfect playground to enhance your skills as well as to enjoy the thrill of flying with the guidance of an experienced tandem pilot.

First time paragliding- so much FUN!

Jack & crew were the BEST.
This was my first time paragliding and they were so helpful! Jack is an absolute pro and you'll notice how respected a pilot he is if you're lucky enough to grab a beer with him at the LZ after a day of flying!
Brought a gopro for the flight and gave me the SD card after for reliving the fun afterwards! Thanks again! Loved it !

Best Experience of my Life

It was my first time paragliding from a mountain and i must admit I was scared to death, having fear of heights.
I literally had to do nothing and the take off with Tobi was so smooth that the moment we were in air, all my fears had eloped and what I could see right in front of me and experience from an altitude of 1800 mts was heaven.
I am glad we chose to fly with Tandem Paragliding, personally thankful to my husband who pushed me so hard to overcome my fear and to Angelica, Jack and Tobi for encouraging me and for being such amazing Pilots. We would highly recommend Tandem Paragliding to anyone who wants to experience Paradise in Malcesine.
