BOOK TRIP

We are pleased to announce our 2017 dates

After yet another very popular and successful summer in Ager, Free Flight Academy are pleased to confirm we will be continuing to include this fantastic XC location in our 2017 calendar.

As before the guided weeks will be instructor driven guided XC workshops based in the beautiful region of Catalonia. This trip aims to combine land base theory lectures with airborne guiding and tuition  and is  targeted at individuals wanting to take their XC potential to the next level.

The course will cover all aspects of XC flying from getting up and staying up through to having the confidence to leave the hill . To get the most out of this trip you should be confident on launch and not require an instructor in the landing field. Some experience of thermalling would also be of use to get the best out of the conditions; although we will help and guide pilots from both the ground and the air to build your best thermalling technique. Flight distance is no problem as there will be a retrieve van following all XC flights.

Catalonia is the perfect location for a trip of this nature, with Ager, Berga and Organya being just three of the well known flying sites in this region. . The trip aims to provide a great combination of full on thermic XC flights and smooth early morning or late afternoon/evening sessions, where certain valleys benefit from that magic type of air you can boat around on until sunset.
