How did the idea came up?

A genuine Tyrolean (Philipp Zellner born in Tyrol, Wörgl) created TirolAir in summer 2019.
The foundation is set by this enthusiastic pilot, which practice 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, to 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 strengthen 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 revitalise the community?

There he loves to take his tend and wing and explore untouched areas in the Himalayan mountains.

Matthias Hohlrieder

“El Chico que ama viajar y volar”
Matthias, a Tyrolean, is also fluent in Spanish and loves to travel.
He is uncomplicated and if the cable car is not running, he carries his wing up the mountain to fly down (hike&fly).
If he doesn’t fly in the Alps, he travels to Colombia, among other places, and does cross country flying there.
Convince yourself of his rich experienced flight qualities.
