We are pleased to announce our 2020 dates

We are pleased to announce in 2020 Free Flight Academy are once again returning  to the fabulous region of central Italy called Abruzzo. In the past this trip has proved to be one of our most popular trips, with people frequently returning for more, so with only two weeks available we’d recommend signing up quick!

This trip is a relaxed thermalling course, aimed at both the low air time pilot who wants to build confidence and skills and the more experienced pilot wanting to enjoy some of the most beautiful flying sites I have found in Europe. It is an ideal location with wide grassy launches , football field sized landing sites and the added bonus of Italian food. I can assure you we have (rather selflessly) done some intensive research on your behalf and located some fantastic places to eat and debrief the day’s flying. I guarantee you the metre of pizza,  BBQ meats, pasta and wine will not disappoint.

At Free Flight Academy we pride ourselves on always offering good quality accommodation and in Abruzzo it is no exception. Our accommodation is set amongst some stunning scenery, with room options to suit singles, twin or doubles.  Photos can be found in the image carousel below.

2020 Trip Dates

  • Week 1: June 6th to June 13th 
  • Week 2: June 13th to June 20th 

Book just one week or two together! Airport: Flight schedules for June 2020 to Fiumicino (FCO) are still not very comprehensive, however the pick up will be 1.45pm and drop off  10.15am as this seems to enable flight bookings from both London and Manchester with the current schedules for Easyjet and Jet2. Wi-Fi: It may be possible to make occasional trips to an internet café throughout the week, however please note there is no internet access at the house.  

Some items of kit to remember:

  • 2M Radio
