Speedflying from Haldigrat down to Brändlen Wolfenschiessen

Speedflying from Haldigrat down to Brändlen Wolfenschiessen

The aim of this video is to show that a Mirage RS 11 with 80KGs load is more than capable to do this flight. It is a good 4.40 mins flight so enjoy it!

Beware of my excitement in the video, it was a true accomplishment after doing the hike from Brändlen in 1.35 hours through snow and mud in late March :)

There are 2 main approaches, the most common one is to hike from Brändlen Paragliding takeoff towards Haldigrat (give yourself a good 2 hours depending on your fitness), the other option, but less convenient from a car parking perspective, is to take the Niederrickenbach Talstation up to Niederrickenbach Dorf, then walk to the bottom of Haldigrat where you can find a little chair lift (this chair lift may not always be open). Beware that there will still be snow on April, so you may need snowshoes. this second option will take a little guess I guess.

For the takeoffs you can choose the Panorama Wanderweg, there is an official takeoff towards Brisen and Hoh Brisen from Haldigrat's restaurant.

On the flight beware on your glide, (if you want to reach Wolfenschiessen) and there is an animal protected area after takeoff.

The landing is at the official paragliding landing in Wolfenschiessen.

Happy flights!
