About Mountain Soaring
We're an Austrian Gliding school and also the official training partner of Stemme AG operating internationally. We staff only the most experienced gliding instructors and competition pilots. Our passion is advanced mountain soaring and adventures around the world. For first timers and anyone curious about seeing the alps from above we offer trail flights, depending on the current weather conditions. All flights start with a safety briefing and we make sure to answer all your questions you might have about flying, the plane, geography, etc. We train anyone interested from scratch and teach licensed pilots more complicated skills of thermals, wave, convergence and ridge soaring. Most importantly, we teach you how to stay safe in the mountains and how to operate modern selflaunching sailplanes.

We booked the flight couple weeks earlier, but due to weather conditions had to shift the time. contact person from Mountain Soaring tried their best to ensure our comfort and best experience. we where 8 people in the business trip and it was lifetime memory for each and every guest. we made group flights 3 glider in the air at a time, so we were able to film each other in the air, overflying Zugspitze, highest mountain of Germany, it was breathtaking. And can not help mentioning my pilot, Dominic, such a talented person and professional. My respect to hem and to the whole Team! Looking forward to my next flight with Mountain Soaring!

I had the best time flying with Markus! It's probably one of the best experiences you can have in Europe: it's a great opportunity to fly a modern glider and have a unique point of view of the Alps surrounding Innsbruck. Our flight had incredible views of the city, nearby mountains and glaciers! They were very responsive and Markus gave me a detailed briefing about the aircraft and the Innsbruck area. I highly recommend Mountain Soaring and can't wait to come back! Thanks for everything!

A fabulous way to see the mountains around Innsbruck. Easy to book the flights via their website, very quick to correspond and worked hard to accommodate all four of us wanting to glide on the same day! Aurel and Marcus did a great job and made us feel comfortable and relaxed for our 1.5 hour flight. They are happy to explain the technical side of gliding and also have a broad knowledge of the city and its environs. We all thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would thoroughly recommend it-a treat!

i saw gliders by innsbruck airport when i landed and signed up, not knowing what i was really getting into. it was incredible- i got to steer for a bit, learned a lot about thermals and we went for hours all over the beautiful surrounding alps. i came for ski touring, but this was the most memorable part of my trip for sure! it got me very interested in gliding/ soaring, and i bet if i had had more flight experience beforehand i would have learned even more. what an awesome way to experience the alps & nature!

I’ve always been awed by eagles flying around the mountains. I was reading up on things to do in Innsbruck in winter other than skiing. How fortunate I was to have found Mountain Soaring Enterprise. Markus the pilot gave a detailed briefing and prepared me well before the flight. The flight - it was cold but I can only say that the view of the mountain ranges in winter is indescribable. Like Markus put it; the glide was silent and calm. Gliding is a totally unique flight experience. You really have to try this. You’ll learn something about science, geography and certainly appreciate Innsbruck more. Thanks Markus and Aurel for taking me to the skies in winter!
