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: we recommend wearing trekking shoes that support your ankles. If you don’t have them, good sneakers are also fine.
  • Clothes: in flight we advise wearing long and comfortable trousers (in July and August also shorts are good), a sweater (even in summer!) and a wind jacket. Keep in mind that the temperature in flight is much colder than on the ground.
  • Protection: remember to bring sunglasses (both for the sun and the wind in your eyes). Helmet and gloves are organized directly 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.

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

To minimize the risk of feeling dizzy during the flight, we strongly recommend to fly once the digestion is completed (i.e. at least 2 hours after the last 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! ?
