Get to know gliding

Towing start Wasserkuppe

Take off with us and let yourself be inspired by gliding!

When the weather is flying, just come to us at the Air Sports Center on the Wasserkuppe and start a trial flight in a glider.

A motorized tow plane will take you into the air. After noticing, your pilot will circle with you over the “mountain of pilots” - an indescribable and unforgettable experience!

Our goal is to inspire you with silent air sports. Many a pilot's career has already started with such a flight 🙂

If you are at least 14 years old, healthy, not heavier than 110 kg and not taller than 2 meters, you can take off with us in the glider pilot. A flight takes about 30 minutes and costs 100 euros.

Prior registration by telephone is not required:
Just come and take off with us!

You can also glide in the form of a Voucher give away. You can also get gift vouchers from us in the air sports center on the Wasserkuppe.

If you decide to train on the Wasserkuppe after your flight, we will record your first flight directly in your logbook!
