During the flying season, that is from the beginning of April through September, the Schänis airport is open to all for flights on Sundays.
Thanks to the airport's location at the base of the Alps, it provides the ideal starting point for lengthy flights to Austria, the Swiss Alps or France.
Switzerland's largest gliding group has its home-base at the Schänis airport. A day of flying adventure includes a theoretical introduction to engine-free flying and a one-hour flight in a glider plane with an experienced pilot.
