Site guidance, transport and retrieves

pgguide2We have more than fifteen years’ experience of free flying in Algodonales and will provide a weather briefing and take you to the best site each day. At the site we will offer advice about local conditions, landings and cross country flying.

Early morning flights with 2000 feet top to bottoms offer calm conditions for those who want them. Later in the day thermal and cross country flights are usual. In the evening conditions become smoother again.

We will pick you up from landing fields and along designated cross country routes and take you back up for a second or sometimes even a third flight every day.

Paragliding holidays are offered for qualified pilots with CP (or equivalent) and at least ten hours flying experience. The decision to fly is always the pilot’s. If you don’t fancy it for any reason – no worries, we will drive you down again.



pgguide3You will need your own approved glider and harness, parachute, and mobile phone. Radios, varios and a GPS are highly desirable but if you don’t have your own we may be able to help you.

Insurance: you must have accident and repatriation insurance to cover you for paragliding including, Also a European Health Insurance card (EHIC). Pilots also need to be a member of the BHPA or similar association.
