Peter Henke lives in Ingelheim, Germany, and is one of the young and talented riders to look out. He has been circling the FMB World Tour scene for years now but 2013 was a breakthrough year for the German rider: After his top ten results at Vienna Air King (Vienna, AUT), King of Dirt (Riva, ITA) and Red Bull Berg Line (Winterberg, GER) he started in Munich as the first and only German MTB rider at the legendary X Games and ended up as one of the best ten riders.
Shortly afterwards, at Colorado Freeride Festival (Winter Park, USA), he celebrated his first spot on the podium at a FMB World Tour Gold event: thanks to an impressive second final run featuring a double backflip, he came shy of only Martin Soderstrom, a more than worthy rival. Further invitations to the top events of the year, Red Bull Joyride (Whistler, CAN) and Red Bull Rampage (Utah, USA) followed which he couldn’t attend due to an injury.
To keep his performance curve growing as steeply as 2013, Pete’s preparations are centered around his new compound in his hometown Ingelheim: with diggers and plenty of earth, he is working on the perfect jumps for a personal training ground. Additionally the Canyon team rider was working on several filming projects in 2014.

Your Paragliding Pilot shows you the most beautiful peaks of the Bavarian Alps in 3 – 4 tandem flights.
Depending on the wind direction, you can, for example, fly by magnificent peaks of Hochfelln in the early morning. These flights offer scenic views of the Chiemsee and with luck of the Salzburg basin.
At noon you could experience paragliding the summit Hochries. Of course, only after a long lunch on the summit hut!
The tandem flight in the afternoon can, for example, start from Brauneck.
If there is enough time and the stomach of our guest still “airworthy”, we provide paragliding near Blomberg as an evening flight.
Fly with your personal tandem pilot on a day three or four peaks in the Chiemgau, overlooking the Chiemsee and the Alps.
-Tandem flights from Hochfelln, Hochries, the Kampenwand or other mountains.
-Shuttle to all flight areas.
-All mountain rides with the respective cableway.
-View photos or video of the tandem flight day.
Our flights “pilot for a day” are only weekdays from Monday to Friday and only by appointment!
Your pilot will inform you about the weather while flying a paraglider, the technique and the interplay of landforms and wind.
You can concentrate entirely on the view from above and the fly – on request the video from the entire day.

The Basic flight is the trial tandem flight in our program, so to speak the “small door” to the world of paragliding.
Tandem paragliding has something special. In completely calm air without thermals you float down into the valley – a heavenly feeling. The Basic flight with the help of your tandem pilot offers the chance to take over the reins and even drive yourself.
Your tandem flight pilot will be there to answer all your questions about the paragliding flight. During the flight filming and photography would also be ideal by our photo rod because of the calm conditions in the air.
After about 10 – 15 minutes your tandem flight is over, and perhaps you will catch – the flight Virus…
-Thorough training of tandem paragliding: take-off, flight, landing phases with your tandem pilot.
-You are insured with us, your pilot signs all flight insurance in your presence.
-You get a helmet, gloves, and in bad weather a flight suit.
-Tandem flight with your pilot. If desired, you may drive yourself!
