Ideal conditions for model pilots

Slope sailing in Samnaun

Hangsegeln & Modellfliegen in Samnaun, Schweiz.
Good thermal conditions and two take-off and landing sites offer excellent flying conditions for model pilots and hang gliders in Switzerland.

Slope flying 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 pylons. The area can be reached on foot or by car.

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