Our Pilots

VIP-paragliding.com was founded by Hajo Smit, one of the very few Dutch tandem pilots in Austria. With a German mother and a half Swiss father he’s more like a European though. Hooked on Austria and always stoked to go flying (and skiing as well).

They say he’s a really nice guy and he can fly too. This is also what he also requires from pilots in his team: charismatic, wellspoken, client oriented excellent pilots.

Let’s take a look!

our priority

Your Safety Is Our First Priority. Adventure Second.

Tandem paragliding is truly a very safe thing to do provided the pilot knows his limitations and the limitations set by mother nature. At VIP-paragliding.com we only fly when the weather conditions allow for a 100% safe flight. The skill of the pilot guarantees a safe takeoff and landing.

“Es war ein unglaubliches Abenteuer zusammen mit Hajo abzuheben. Man fühlt sich absolut Sicher so relaxed wie er fliegt. Ich überlege schon wann ich meinen nächsten Flug buchen könnte.”

our mission

What You Need To Know About Paragliding

It is our mission to give our Very Important Passengers a true VIP feeling. Pickup from the hotel is possible. We book luxury taxis for transport to the cableway (telepherique). We always take time to have a nice conversation. We like to get to know you and we are happy to tell you more about our job and our life in the mountains. You get simple effective instruction for a safe start. And then we fly!.
