Congratulations, you will soon experience one of the most beautiful emotions in the world: the magic of flight! To better prepare for this fantastic adventure, we kindly ask you to read all the following important information.

How long does the whole activity last?

The total duration of the activity, from the initial meeting to the time of landing, is approximately 2 hours. However, we recommend keeping a free schedule for about 3 hours, as sometimes there can be some waiting time at take-off, in order to start with optimal wind conditions.

What should I wear?

  • Shoes: mountain or trekking shoes are the best, but also normal sneakers are ok.
  • Clothes: we recommend wearing a sweater and a windbreaker. Remember that it’s much colder in the air than it is on the ground.
  • Protection: please bring sunglasses. Helmet and gloves are brought by us.

Are you strict on punctuality?

Yes, it is very important to arrive on time! Our flight day is structured in slots with different customers and therefore it is not possible to start the activity late. As per our Terms & Conditions, delays of more than 15 minutes involve the cancellation of the flight and the loss of the deposit.

Can I bring my personal belongings with me?

Yes, during the flight you can store a small backpack behind the pilot’s harness.

Can I use my own GoPro during the flight?

Unfortunately not. Because of safety and insurance regulations, only FlyTicino’s pilots are authorized to take photos and videos during flight maneuvers. All personal passenger’s belongings must be stored in the special rear compartment of the harness, before take-off.

How does the payment take place?

Payment is requested at the end of the flight in cash and in Swiss francs. We kindly ask you to bring the exact amount agreed upon, as we don’t always carry change. We do not accept credit cards.

Should I fly on an empty stomach or immediately after eating?

It is preferable to fly once the digestion is completed or after eating a light and dry meal.

What happens in case of bad weather?

For safety reasons, it is possible that at any time (from a few days before to the same day) the flight may be canceled due to bad weather conditions. This decision is solely up to the professional pilots of FlyTicino. In case of flight cancellation, the guarantee deposit is fully refunded.

We look forward to fly with you! 😃
