Tandem Pilots

Chrigel Kuhn

flying since 2006
After a tandem flight in 2006 it was clear to Chrigel: I want to fly myself! Without further ado, he took his paragliding licence and finally became a tandem pilot in 2013. Anyway, he feels most comfortable with a paraglider or kite over his head. Skydiving, speedflying and kitesurfing are also among his hobbies. The best experiences he makes with his glider are probably the days he goes on Hike&Bivouac&Fly missions. Flying to the top of a mountain, put up a tent, spend the nights under the stars and continue flying the next day.

Jonas Hofer

flying since 2014
“When I fly, I enjoy the opportunity to immerse myself in another world.”
Jonas likes to be out and about in the mountains. And, of course, he loves to do so with his paraglider. Thanks to it, he always experiences incredible moments in the air, be it breathtaking atmospheres or special experiences like soaring for hours with an eagle. Or he simply enjoys flying together with friends. To develop himself as a pilot, he occasionally takes part in local paragliding competitions.

Roli Wyss

more than 10’000 tandem flights
Co-Founder of Skywings Paragliding
“While paragliding I see nature in a way that wouldn’t be possible elsewise”
Roli founded Skywings Paragliding together with his wife and brother in 2008, turning his hobby into his profession. Even after more than 30 years of paragliding, there is nothing better for him than discovering the world from the air. The experienced tandem pilot has already made over 10,000 tandem flights. Privately, he likes to combine paragliding with his passion for the mountains: climbing a peak and flying back down to the valley.
