  • Our Take-Off Areas

    Our Take-Off Areas

    In Monte Grappa you will find many take-offs oriented in all directions to fly with any kind of wind, except the north wind, which blows rarely thanks to the protection provided by the alpine arch.

    South-oriented take-offs (Stella Alpina and Tappeti) are the most used and can be reached in about 15 minutes by shuttle vans. They are located at an altitude between 700 and 850 metres.

    The East-oriented (Antenne) and West-oriented (Casette) take-offs are wide grassy areas at an altitude of about 700 to 1000 metres.

    Dedicated to the hang-gliders is the Pedana Delta at 850 metres and the large take off Col Campeggia at 1080 metres, area especially dedicated to competition.

    Finally, the legendary take-off Panettone at 1563 meters allows flying close to Cima Grappa.

    Cross flights

    Located in the center of the Veneto foothills, Monte Grappa is a great starting point for cross flights. You can fly both towards West and East for several kilometers without bumping inside a no fly zone, always taking advantage of the ascending currents that float on the mountains ridge. A theater for national and international competitions, our flying zone has given the competing pilots the opportunity to complete more than 100 kilometre-long tasks.
