COLOMBIA, ADVENTURE PARAGLIDING

Wayne Apia 2

Select 'Book a Trip' to see available dates.

After another fantastic Colombian adventure in 2018, Akis and I are pleased to announce we’ll be offering another two opportunities to join us on our Colombian XC adventures in 2019.

For us Colombia is an easy long haul decision to make. Not only are the conditions perfect for some winter XC but Akis previously lived in Colombia for a year so we have his extensive local knowledge at our disposal. He is very familiar with the sites we will be flying, the language and the people which all combines to make your trip to Colombia authentic and hassle free.

Since the change of government 13 years ago Colombia has turned itself around and has become a very popular winter destination for pilots from all over the world. The PWC have a regular spot there every January and lots of Brits make the pilgrimage for what are the best XC conditions for any pilot wanting to escape the long European winters.  With easy landing out and retrieve options, there’s never any fear of leaving the hill, just join a gaggle and away you go.

We would recommend pilots interested in this XC excursion have a minimum of 20 + hours and be confident with unassisted launching and landing. The focus of this trip is XC so to get the best out of the conditions you should also be comfortable with thermalling.

If this paragliding adventure tickles your fancy contact me to confirm your place. This trip is strictly limited to 8 places per two week trip and will be on a first come first serve basis.
