Ötztal is known for the fact that you can easily reach altitudes of 3000 meters and more. Impressive dimensions that require precise control of the airspace before departure. Additionally, over 3300 m altitude pilots should definitely be familiar with the current aviation rules. In good flying weather, it is no coincidence that the colorful paragliders circle the striking peak of Acherkogel near Oetz. From the starting point in Hochoetz at approx. 1350 meters above sea level, paragliders conquer the air and fly over the most stunning spots in lower Ötztal, such as lake Piburger See. Even with challenging thermal currents the tandem pilots usually touch down precisely on the landing sites in Ötztal.
