Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Finally after an extremely long public viewing the Austrian “Guest flying regulations” are officially published – the decree will be in force by March 1st 2017. Very liberal regulations will apply.
Any holder of a hang gliding and/or paragliding license from following countries will be allowed to fly legally in Austria. Attention: This does not include tandem and paramotor licenses.
17. Czech Republic
20. Great Britain
Colleagues not having a licence as listed above are advised to contact an Austrian Flying-School to obtain an official „Guest Flying License“.
Please be aware that for flying in Austria a 3rd party liability insurance up to SDR 750.000 is compulsory. We also recommend sufficient coverage for search and rescue – as helicopter costs can be quite high. For any queries in regard of insurance please contact us: email@example.com or visit our websitewww.flugschulen.at/axa/english
Enjoy your flying in Austria!
