Pilatus Aerial Cableway: An Idea becomes Reality

In 2008 we had an idea in the context of the development of a master plan for the Pilatus: Why not design the inside of a aerial cableway like an arena, so that not only the passengers around the edges can enjoy the view, and everyone can have the experience of «floating in the air»? On 1st April 2015, the Pilatus cableways opened the «Dragon Ride» – the new aerial cableway from the Fräkmüntegg to Pilatus Kulm. The cableway is the real version of our idea. Thanks to its roomy interior, cockpit-like shape and large windows, it makes its passengers feel like they are flying.
