Went on 7 Jul and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! This wouldn't be possible if it weren't for the Airtime Paragliding team who have been nothing but re-assuring, funny and friendly! Our pilots, Valentino and Walter, were absolutely incredible and I love the fact that they started off paragliding as a hobby before it transitioned to a job that they love and now spreading the joy of paragliding to us and everyone! :) We've set a hotel right next to Lauterbrennen station as the pickup point and the van with Airtime Paragliding logo arrived on time, it later dropped us off at Stechelberg (probably around 10min ride) where we met up with our pilots to take the gondola up to Mürren. Do note that there's a short few minutes hike up to the take-off spot. Really amazing how the pilots hike up and down few times a day carrying the ~18kg gear and STILL managed to talk to us normally (while us losing our breath). Valentino and Walter gave clear instructions on the take-off, basically walk run and relax once up in the sky! I'm glad that Valentino lent me a windbreaker jacket because it sure was freezing cold up there with the wind. Managed to go nearer to the mountains, maneuver a little as well. Before landing, Valentino gave me a short whirl of 'rollercoaster' and a calmer cruising so I can experience a bit of both! Thank you Valentino & Walter again for such an incredible experience, really appreciate it!

Loved it. All except for the spiraling part. Apparently not all pilots do that and it made me sick. It would be good to have a choice about this.

Hey there! Thanks for flying with us glad you loved it :) You do of course have a choice about how active your flight is, it’s an armchair in the sky or a roller coaster if you like that! Just chat to your pilot :)

Beyond incredible!! The pick up van was right on time and the driver was pleasant and helpful. The tandem jump guides were friendly, fun and skilled. We felt safe at all times!! The "flight" was truly unbelievable!!! Indescribable.....the guides took their time, flying up over mountains and waterfalls not visible from the ground. The air was warm and calm, no stress or fear at all. They even let us "fly" the pataglider for a little while and safely showed us how the controls worked. They also took many photos and videos that were available for an additional, reasonable fee. Takeoff and landing were both gentle and easy. Overall, an incredible experience!!!

My tandem pilot Walter is very warm and professional! I was very nervous as I have fear of height and sudden drop, I don’t even dare to sit rollercoaster. But Walter calmed me with his constant assurance and jokes, he assured me to trust him and this is going to be “si bei shiok” and it truly was! It was an amazing experience, not frightening at all after the first few minutes. We flew slowly and steadily, very safe and I really enjoyed the fly. I felt like a bird! My sister flew with George and was equally exhilarated. Highly recommend Airtime! And must buy the photos, it’s well taken and forever a memorable experience.

We had the time of our lives paragliding over the swiss alps from lauterbrunnen. It was an unforgettable one flying with Fabian and Patrick. They were very accommodating and their instructions were very clear. We would definitely recommend airtime paragliding to our family and friends. Thank you again to Fabian and Patrick for the wonderful experience.

My friends and I just finished our experience 2 days ago. Once booked, we reached out to them what is needed from us and what to expect. They were very fast to reply and they do reach out to you if you have not done so. Our four instructors were knowledgeable and take us step by step on what we need to do. Definitely get the pictures they took! Thank you to Dave and the rest of the team!

From the moment my family and I met our Airtime Paragliding team, the experience only got better. They first recommended and provided new shoes and snow pants for my mom and sister since we'd be walking through the snow (note, it's a bit of a hike to the takeoff point) and it'd be cold in the air. All of our guides were incredibly friendly and helped put us at ease. I rode with Pasqual (sorry, unsure of the spelling) who was so comforting and informative throughout the entire experience. The experience is a million percent worth it for the views! Absolutely incredible to be able to see both mountains and the valley. While pictures are not included in the experience price, the guides take pictures using a GoPro and I definitely knew I'd be buying mine (note, some guides seem to take more pictures than others). The only hiccup that occurred was that I'd booked a flight time at 3:45PM on a Tuesday and I received a text message from the company the day before saying that that actually wasn't an available flying time and asking if I could change it. They noted this is an issue with Viator's platform, but I wish I had been contacted sooner since my family had made other travel plans (I booked the paragliding experience over a week before the date) and I could only receive messages in Switzerland when on WiFi. All in all, a completely worthwhile experience in my opinion!

If you’re hesitant, DON’T do it

Could have been great but was far from it. One of the pilots on our way up seemed a little off. He was making jokes about this being his first time doing this, just getting out of prison and that we’re going to do a “lot of spinning” to which we say “no,no, no”. Sure enough not long after take off he did a few steep banked turns (I get that they probably weren’t steep to an experienced paraglider, but this was my first time). I got sick. I’m a small plane pilot, lived on ships, never been sick on a rollercoaster, plane or car. I didn’t understand how other people could handle this. When we got down, I asked my wife if her paraglider did sharp turns and she said definitely not. I reached out to airtime to share my experience. I spoke with Kora who didn’t let me speak before asking “did you tell him not to?” I said I have no idea what’s normal or not normal for paragliding and assumed this was how he had to turn. She got aggressive and asked me if we said no when he joked about spinning on the way up. I said my wife said “no, no,no”. She said “well, did you actually say no or just your wife?” What? I thought we made it fairly clear. I was going to let this go until I got an email from the manager, Kathryn which instead of an apology or an attempt to find out what happened, she accused us of having drank too much champagne the night before because we mentioned to their guides that we had a glass of champagne upon arrival at the hotel when we arrived the day before: “ I have been advised from our Pilot that the vomiting could be a result of consumption of alcohol (champagne) the previous day, which affected the enjoyment of your flight. Naturally, we would never allow anyone under the influence of alcohol to fly but at the time, the pilot perceived that there was no obvious signs of very recent (today) alcohol. However, upon reflection, when your wife and yourself had first met the Pilots, there were discussions of a most enjoyable night with champagne” They did offer me another flight which seems odd after an aggressive email blaming me for the bad experience before ever getting the information. My entire day in Lauterbrunnen was ruined by being sick. My advice is that if you’re at all hesitant to do this, don’t do it. If you do choose to go, try a smaller company with less variation in the guides. If you go with airtime, ask for Toby. He was an absolutely wonderful person and my wife had a nice flight with him.

Airtime Paragliding take the experience of our Passengers very seriously, to which we have gained an exceptional reputation and thousands of incredibly happy Passengers; our reviews and feedback attribute flying with us as one of the most spectacular and memorable moments of their lives. Regarding the derogatory Review that you have made, I have added the email that we sent to you on the day of your Flight. We also telephoned you on this same day. Neither a call back or response to our email was made. (Below Email from Airtime Manager on day of flight to Passenger): Good eveningTony, My name is Kathryn and I am one of the Manager's of Airtime Paragliding. Firstly, I would like to wish you Congratulations on your Honeymoon. I did try and call a couple of times this afternoon as I understand that you felt that your flight did not meet with your expectations and you were disappointed. I also understand that you were unwell and vomiting shortly after take-off, to which you asked the Pilot to land. The Pilot asked if you were sure as once the descent began, it would not be possible to regain lift. The Pilot offered a sickness bag in the air, which was declined. Then, you asked for it, to which it was then too late. The Pilot took just one turn to initiate the landing. Our Guest's experience and safety is paramount to us, to which we take incredibly serious. From what the Pilot and our day manager has communicated to me, is that you were advised to fly today instead of yesterday as today the weather was some of the most beautiful flying conditions (sunny and warm) compared to yesterday where the weather was cloudy, cold and raining. We strive to ensure that our Passengers are provided with the most up-to-date weather and conditions information so that there is the option to move a flight to another day. This was the case I understand with your booking. I have been advised from our Pilot that the vomiting could be a result of consumption of alcohol (champagne) the previous day, which affected the enjoyment of your flight. Naturally, we would never allow anyone under the influence of alcohol to fly but at the time, the pilot perceived that there was no obvious signs of very recent (today) alcohol. However, upon reflection, when your wife and yourself had first met the Pilots, there were discussions of a most enjoyable night with champagne to celebrate your Honeymoon. Our Pilot and harness was covered in Vomit, to which we do not have any issues with and the Pilot was able to thoroughly wash everything to conform to health and safety standards . The Pilot tried everything in his power to ensure that you were as comfortable as possible in such an unfortunate situation. We have been told that our Pilot was spoken to in a very rude manner and that is very disappointing to hear. From our understanding, your wife had a thoroughly enjoyable flight. We do always strive to go above and beyond to ensure that all of Passengers have the experience of a lifetime - to which for many, it really is their experience of their lifetime. We do not judge any of our passengers and I have only mentioned the possibility of alcohol being a contributor to the vomiting. Regardless, the Pilot has offered the option to take you flying again before you leave and hence my attempt to call you with this option. We do hope that you are feeling much better and can empathise when you are on holiday and not feeling your best. Please do let me know if you would like to fly again during your honeymoon. Thanks Kathryn (End of email) In a nutshell, our Pilots are highly trained and have been part of our Team for many years. We do not take steep turns and the sickness began straight after take-off, before any gentle turns were initiated. The Owner of the company was also flying at the same time and did not see any steep turns taken. The only gentle turn taken was to change direction for landing. The Pilot asked if you would like to land as soon as possible, to which he made all efforts to avoid any further sickness. However, whether alcohol or in fact anything else was a factor for the sickness, we did our upmost in this uncomfortable situation to be empathetic and ensure you had a positive experience. The Owner of the company also recalled that you had in fact mentioned that the day before the flight, as it was your Honeymoon, champagne had been enjoyed during the afternoon, which certainly implied more than one glass. I indeed offered a complimentary flight, despite the behavior and manner in which our Team members were spoken to...but my email and calls were not given any response. You did not allow us the opportunity after your flight to ensure that regardless of the initial sickness experience, that you could once again fly with us during your Honeymoon.
