Paramotor to Paragliding Conversion Course

Why just stick to one form of flight? If you are a paramotor pilot why not explore the world of Paragliding and see if it could also be for you? It is the purest form of free flying and a great way to up your skill in PPG.

We are offering a new conversion course for paramotor pilots to learn the additional skills required to be a proficent and safe paraglider pilot.

On this course you will learn the different takeoff and landing techniques, thermal flying, ridge soaring, descent techniques and flying with others.

At Free Flight Academy we are enthusiastic about both sports and believe each one brings its own skills and benefits so combining the two offers you the opportunity to become a better all round pilot.

The course is run in Algodonales, a paragliding mecca located just an hour and a half from Malaga airport. As our home location, we have hundreds (if not thousands) of flying hours on the flying sites in and around this stunning village. It is the ideal location to train and this four day course (with two additional days consolidation) will give you the opportunity to qualify as a BHPA Club Pilot.

Our accommodation is in a beautiful and unique house, built by a well known local architect. Right on the edge of town, it has stunning views and is just a 7 minute walk to the plaza where you will find a wide number of restaurants and bars. It is also just a 5 minute walk to the local supermarket and with access to a well stocked kitchen this is ideal if you wish to self-cater or alternatively prepare breakfast and pack lunches.


The cost of the trip is £895
