For the lightheaded ones: just take-off!

What would Friedrichshafen be like without aviation? You can take-off in your leisure-time, too. Glide away with the Zeppelin along to the alps, book a sightseeing flight in a helicopter or a microlight airplane. And if you seek pure adventure, you can become a pilot and book a trial flying lesson.
