2008 was a record year for Flyspain.... Make your 2009 holiday count

Flyspain has seen over 300 visiting pilots last year alone. All learning to thermal, improving their personal knowledge of flying, climbing out with the local Griffin vultures and making regular Xc flights from Algo to Ronda and beyond....

05th January 2009

 As ever the tuition has been brilliant here, we have qualified over fifty to sixty pilots since September of either Ep or Club pilot status and around 160 over last year, congratulations to all and safe flying over winter. How did the year finish? Two weeks of great thermic flying and a 30 K Xc flight to Ronda on Xmas Day….can’t be bad. Anyway we hope you enjoy the newsletter, just remember Southern Spain is the first place to warm up and the last to cool down! Happy New Year
