In summer, both take-off sites can be reached via the Zillertaler Höhenstrasse (toll road) in the kiosk area at the top of the Höhenstrasse, below the Arbiskopf. The ascent is possible by car, by regular bus or by shuttle bus from the flying school. From here you have many possibilities to fly in the thermals of the Zillertal. Those who do not find any updrafts in front of the take-off site and above the rounded, wooded ridge can take a trip to the Perlerbart on the flight path to the landing site, which is not visible from here above, and hope for updrafts. If you manage to catch one of the updrafts, you can expect unforgettable flights along the Zillertal towards the Inn valley or even the Pinzgau. The Gerlos Pass, however, is a difficult passage, but it is only a digression. The breathtaking view from the high road over the Zilletal Alps and the main ridge of the Alps is a blessing for body and soul, even if you can't fly or can only glide 1400 meters. As the wind conditions in Melchboden are not clearly visible from the valley, information can be obtained from the kiosk staff (tel. +43/(0)664 100 30 10).
