How did the idea come up?

A genuine Tyrolean (Philipp Zellner born in Tyrol, Wörgl) created TirolAir in summer 2019.
The foundation was set by this enthusiastic pilot, which practices paragliding in solo disciplines, such as aerobatics and cross-country flying (Himalayan mountains, European Alpine region….).
And countless of tandem flights with local as well as international tandem companies (in Tyrol, Salzburg, Carinthia, Guatemala, Canary Islands …).
With great passion and heart for his work and people, the step to self-employment came across.

Our mission:

We are here to make your dream of flying come true, and we want you to experience the positive effects of flying and take you in the air.
In paragliding, we only need our wing and the wind to carry us through the air. We don’t need an engine or gasoline. This makes us proud to be able to call this sport a “green activity”.
We are for the region and strengthening the Kitzbühel Alps tourism (region: Wilder Kaiser, Söll, Brixental, Hopfgarten im Brixental, Westendorf …).
We are for transparency and togetherness in the paragliding scene, and maybe we revitalize the community!?

Philipp Zellner

Philipp is the founder of TirolAir … you just have to get to know him.
Whether on the slackline, hanging on a rope in a steep wall or circling above the summit like an eagle, his big playground is the mountains. His trademark includes his dreadlocks and his arrival with his VW T 3 bus. India is his second home. There he loves to take his tend and wing and explore untouched areas in the Himalayan mountains.
