Paragliding only half an hour away from the city center: at the Uetliberg you can fly in the low to moderate Bise (NE wind). Since this launching site is very small and surrounded by trees, a skillful reverse launch technique is recommended. After starting, an active flying style is necessary.
The region around the Uetliberg is a beautiful Bise flying area at the door of Zurich and sometimes beyond. The flight school Skyjam Zurich Paragliding supervises the start area and landing field in Zurich-Leimbach in collaboration with the landowners. Together, the promotion of flying at Zurich’s local mountain is set as the destination and the best possible care of all pilots is supervised.
