High up – Ideal conditions for model aircraft

Hang sailing in Samnaun

Good thermal conditions and two take-off and landing sites offer excellent flying conditions for model and hill gliders.

Slope soaring area Chè d'Mot

The slope flying area is located in the meadow next to the Chè d'Mot, the wooded hill with the four cable car masts. The area is accessible on foot or by car.

The slope faces south. Thanks to a flat plateau overgrown with grass, Chè d'Mot offers ideal landing conditions, even for less experienced pilots. The best flying conditions are in the late morning. The airspace is large enough to allow several models to be flown simultaneously without danger.

The starting point remains the same for both wind directions. The landing field is laid out in a north-south direction, which allows landing against the wind.
