We are pleased about your interest in the offer of Gleitschirmschule Engelberg GmbH. Paragliding is considered a safe sport and is therefore not considered a risk sport by Swiss accident insurers. This makes the personal responsibility of each pilot all the greater. With the acceptance of your booking at the Gleitschirmschule Engelberg GmbH a contract between you and the Gleitschirmschule Engelberg GmbH comes into being. These general terms and conditions form an integral part of this contract. We ask you to study them carefully.
The vouchers are valid for 1 year (date of issue on voucher). The flight duration cannot be guaranteed. In the interest of safety, the tandem pilot can postpone or cancel a passenger flight at any time (e.g. due to weather conditions). The pilot's instructions must always be followed.
