INTENSIVE XC WEEK, SPAIN

Select 'Book a Trip' to see available dates.

Over the last few years we have been asked to offer trips with smaller group sizes and so this September we are trialing the first of our ‘intensive’ trips . These trips will be limited to a maximum of four pilots and will focus on ensuring each pilot gets the individual dedicated instruction and feedback required to take their flying to the next level.

Algodonales located just an hour and  half from Malaga is a paragliding mecca that both Akis and I know extensively. Both of us have lived in the village for 9+ years and combined we have thousands of hours flying on and around the local sites, so it is the ideal location to host an XC master class for a small group.

With two instructors and only four pilots, we offer the perfect environment for some intense theory and in air XC training. Lee and Akis have different XC flying styles, so they will alternate flying in the air with you. This will enable you to learn a range of tips and tools and find out which combination works best for you. If required this course can also offer the opportunity to sign off pilot tasks.

We strongly believe September in Algodonales is the perfect location and time of year for this type of course. The last two years have produced 8,000-10,000ft cloud bases and a range of different XC flights, from open distance at 150+k and 100+k FAI triangles.

This trip is priced at a higher rate to reflect the personal nature and small group size.
