“Can't wait to go back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

There's a reason everyone has rated this amazing; it's because not only is the actual Paragliding a thrilling and outstanding experience; it's the staff are incredible.

My wife and I were visiting Lauterbrunnen in May of this year at a suggestion of a few friends we had. While trying to figure out what to do we stumbled across Airtime Paragliding, which I am forever thankful for.

Beni (the owner) was an OUTSTANDING guy who went out of his way to help us with anything we needed during our ENTIRE stay at Lauterbrunnen. He visited us the morning of our flight, which turned out to be a bit to rainy. He sat down with us and looked over our schedule; then found a time the following day which we tentatively re-scheduled it for. Following that; he asked if we wanted a ride out to the falls (something to see during those rainy days). We were blown away.

The following day came and just as communicated, he reached out to us the night before to let us know we were a go. Again picked us up at our hotel and drove us down to get going. It was at this time we met Dan and Rob; two amazing individuals whom I hope to meet again.

A bit of fun poking back and forth these two guys were enjoying life. Their excitement carried over into creating an even better time for us, as they are extremely passionate about what they do.

Bottom Line:
- If you're in Lauterbrunnen or anywhere around it, this is a MUST.

Can't wait to go back.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had a really wonderful time paragliding this afternoon. Dan and Sebastian were really knowledgable and professional. They made sure everything was easy for us. The views were absolutely spectacular... we had pretty good conditions (I think!) so we were able to stay up in the air for longer than expected. We felt safe and taken care of the whole time. This is a really unique and spectacular way to see the region. Well worth the $$. DO IT!

“This is the kind of thing you have to do once in a life time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

This was a great experience. We did the jump from Murren which they called it "The wall" The view from the above was breath taking. Initially we thought that we would be afraid of the flight, the height and we are going to scream! Afterall, we are flying off a cliff!! However once it is on, just sit back and enjoy the show, the feeling was simply fanastic.

The pilots were great, they give us so much confidence and you will feel their professionalism when they judge the movement of the cloud and the wind direction. Thanks to the wonderful arrangement by Airtime as well, FYI we only managed to do our flight only on our third ride on the gondola to Murren as the weather forbids us to do our flight for the first two tries, we were rightfully required to pay for our gondola return trip to Stenchelberg but Airtime had it covered for us as well! Wonderful arrangement which they really didn't really have to!

I did my jump with Robbie and my wife with Dan, the first two rides we tried with Fabian & Dan but Fabian was not around on the third, nevertheless, it was still wonderful. The experience was magical and the pilot would sometime give you a moment or two for yourself to manevour and allows you to feel how it is like.

The pilots have stunts up their sleeve, so just ask them to perform some of them if you want some thrill as well, it will be a little more exciting than roller coaster ride =) it was cool and extraordinary experience. You will be so addicted that you will want to learn paragliding after your first leap.

We were issued drink coupons after the flight and just redeem the drink and chill after the flight at airtime. Try the hot chocolate!

“Experience of a lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Our first time ever paragliding and we are so glad we had this fantastic experience with Airtime-Paragliding. This was an experience that is going to be with us for a lifetime.

A special thanks have to go to Dan and Dave for making the flights so enjoyable. We both felt very safe and comfortable with both pilots and had full trust in their skills and never had any safety concerns.

Doing paragliding in Lauterbrunnen is a definite MUST DO with these guys. Will I do it again??
Hell Yes, in fact after my first experience of paragliding I am going to do my pilot license in soon and when we visit Lauterbrunnen (which will be in the near future) I will def. be bringing my paraglider along to soar through the beautiful valley.

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Paragliding with Airtime was fantastic. We are a family of four, 2 adults and 2 teens. We scheduled our flights through Airtime Cafe in Lauterbrunnen and met our tandem pilots at the base of the gondola at Stechelberg. The cost was inclusive of the gondola ride and the actual flight. The two pilots were Benni, the owner of Airtime Paragliding, and Dave. We all went up together and two of us waited in Murren while two took flight. Soaring past the Jungfrau and through the Lauterbrunnen valley was stunning. The landing was easy and the experience was exhilarating. After the first two glided, the second group met Benni and Dave at the gondola and had their turn. All of the flights were both photographed and videotaped by the pilots. These cost extra but are worth the price as an excellent keepsake. The experience, customer service, and care provided by Airtime Paragliding was outstanding. We highly recommend Airtime.
