Andreas “Grüni” Grünbacher, grew up in the Upper Austrian lake district, is a trained vehicle technician and has been an aviator enthusiast since 2013. Chronically good-humored and always a good saying on his lips!

For as long as I can remember, I have been doing sport and measuring my performance in competitions or personal projects. In addition to my work as an electrical engineer and bike trainer, I completed my training as a paragliding instructor and tandem pilot in 2019 & 2020.

Having grown up in the “Ländle” (Vorarlberg) and now settled in Upper Austria, I work full-time in the chemical industry. In my spare time, I pass on the joys of flying to other people as a flight instructor or tandem pilot. Thanks to my calm and relaxed manner, the nervousness before the first flight disappears as if by magic.

As a professional tandem pilot, I have already taken off from many launch sites throughout Europe. Nevertheless, I always enjoy tandem flying in the Salzkammergut because the panorama from the Zwölferhorn is particularly impressive.

Hi, I’m Mario and I’m from the Salzkammergut. I am an enthusiastic paragliding pilot and would be delighted if I could soon show you on a tandem flight why flying is my great passion. I am sure that you will then understand what I love about this sport.

Paragliding is my passion – as a flight instructor, safety trainer and tandem pilot I try to pass on this passion. I’ve been paragliding since I was a child and, depending on the time of year, I fly hike & fly, cross-country or acrobatic flights.
