Who or what is "Tandem Kurt"?
Tandem Kurt is a tandem-flying company registered in the company's book, with the legal name Tandem Kurt Paragleitflüge e.U.
We have been completing tandem flights for more than 19 years since the license was granted in 1997. Kurt Burger (therefore also "Tandem Kurt") is the holder of the permit, since the beginning of 1983 he has been a glider pilot and knows the parachute scene very well from the start. From 1989 to 1992 he was actively involved in the Austrian league as a pilot and was able to win some successes during this time
Tandem authority since 1995.
Since 1992, the first legally approved tandem flights have been held in Austria. In July 1995, the authorities were already registered with the Federal Ministry of the Interior. The permit for the professional transport of persons and things took place on 21 July 1997. The permit for the start of the flight operation took place on 26 January 1998.
Our pilots used meet all legal requirements for commercial tandem flights and are supervised by the aviation and aeronautical departments. In addition, our pilots have to complete an annual marine safety program. An emergency is practiced.
Only TOP equipment is used with our equipment. The screens used are maintained annually in accordance with the provisions of the applicable law. This is confirmed by a stamp on each screen. The customer has the possibility to check this directly. Our paragliders are produced by a well-known Austrian manufacturer and are custom-made. The umbrella is provided with our logo specially for us in the factory, and specially sewn for us. For info: Our tandem screens are max. 4 years in use.
Another top quality feature is the "ROGALLO" rescue. This allows us to further control the tandem flight in emergency / emergency situations even after a rescue operation.
Harness and camera:
Also in the remaining flight equipment we have our high level standard. The harnesses used by passengers and pilots are perfectly coordinated with each other. All components are tested and are also serviced annually. The cameras used are also of the latest generation. Videos can even be recorded in 4k resolution.
We are still one of those companies which have been approved by a two-stage, state approval as a certified tandem-flying company. For some years, a simple registration with the commercial office is sufficient and everyone can "tandem"
