XC Safari - Austria - Slovenia - Italy
You want to discover new territories?
Than this XC-Safari will match you expectations.
Together with the XC group we fly away from the local area and take on the challenge of reaching new destinations. Step by step we fly from cloud to cloud, from mountain-to-mountain peak, to the next destination.
The XC Safari is for Intermediate and advanced pilots with some XC experience only! If you’re not yet experienced in XC flying please take a look at the XC training course or our thermal training course.
This safari is guided by two of our pilots and one driver who is following to pick us up where we have landed. The guides will help you reach the goals of the pack. One guide is leading which you and the group can follow. The other guide is in the back helping the slower or less experienced pilots to follow or catch-up with the pack.
All pilots will fly with radiocommunication so the guides can give you tips in air. We attach great importance to ensuring that everyone is supported at their level and can develop further. If you like we’ll give you tips to help you improve your skills so you can fly with better feeling and cover greater distances.

The feeling of “I’m on my own” often creates additional stress that can cause you to go for landing sooner. Since we try to fly our plan with the group, your guide can give you instructions while flying. This means that many people do not feel left alone when flying. It may well give you more self-confidence so that you dare to fly further into unknown territory.
9632 Kirchbach, Gailtal
We will meet up at our school in Kirchbach to get to know each other and discuss our plans and your goals for the next days.
We will also check your settings of your harness and setup and do a pre flight check.
Depending on the weather conditions we go up for a flight or a dive into our pool, or probably both. So don’t forget your swimsuit 😉
Depending on the weather forecast we make the plan to fly in Austria, Slovenia and if possible also in Italy. During the safari we will plan our accommodations last minute to stay flexible.
