- ABOUT THE SPOT
Canopy Piloting in Ruppiner Land Airport, Berlin, Brandenburg Germany
For air sport enthusiasts, the greater Berlin area is a skydiving heaven. If you want to try something unique, except skydiving, Canopy Piloting is being practiced at the Ruppiner Land airport, at 69 km/42 mi in the northwest of Berlin. You will still jump off a plane and fly with a parachute, but this time you will have to control it, aim right at the pond and then walk with the gigantic canopy on measured land.
Canopy Piloting or else swooping is more than adventurous pond surfing with 100 kph (62 mph). It is covered with full range of safe flying and flaring to sporty swoop. At the landing point there is a pond of 10 x 75 m (32.9 x 246 ft) large and 1 m (3 ft) deep. The Canopy Piloting experience is available for all levels.
