Re: recommendation for paragliding-Zurich

Dear all…As I had a horrible experience with Paraworld
(http://www.paraworld.ch) in Zurich I would like to share this with you. It would be beneficial for all new comers especially foreigners whom wants to take Paraglider course with Paraworld ! In short Paraworld is not a place for foreigners or maybe dark-skin foreigners…Both trainers was so rude, sarcastic, ironic and mocking! I was the only foreigner in the group and they did not bring equipment for me … they told me if someone make break I can use his/her stuff !… Simply they ruin my whole day without even apologizing! Finally only one of trainers apologized because at the end I denied to shake hand with him and told them I would like to report them as a xenophobic !
Sorry it didn't work out for you, really.
On the flip side of your story, I started with Paraworld about 18 months ago as a non German speaker & a very careful (read slow) learner, all the way Paraworld.Ch instructors displayed great patience & persistence in coaching. Even when I got their equipment hung up in a tree.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ueli, Dominic & Co for anyone interested in this sport. They have a place in Luzern now too, since this summer.

I have no commercial interests in paraworld just a satisfied customer.

Re: recommendation for paragliding-Zurich

Check out mountainoclock.com

They give amazing paragliding experiences from Zurich and they cover a great part of Central Switzerland (they mostly fly around Lucerne and Engelberg) and from the Uetliberg only with the right wind

Transport / Shuttle from Zurich / Zug and Lucerne too

I totally recommend then
