World Class XC Guiding in Southern Spain with Carlos Cordido

We are excited to announce that next season we will be joined by a remarkable and seasoned pilot Carlos Cordido. Carlos will be guiding our XC Guided weeks and sharing his XC knowledge and competition secrets. He will also be hosting some workshops during his time here focusing on developing keys skills in XC and competition flying.

Let us introduce you to Carlos Cordido. Carlos started flying at the age of 11 along with his father and brother, they felt so attracted to the sky that they never stopped flying since. After more than 20 Years as a pilot, Carlos has had some nice accomplishments, achieving a 3rd Place at paragliding World Cup Brazil 2012 and 5th place at Paragliding World cup France 2012, in 2013 along with the National Venezuelan team finished in 3rd Place by Nations at the FAI Paragliding World Championship in Sopot Bulgaria. In 2014 Carlos was the Venezuelan National Champion.

Today Carlos loves to take people high up in the sky and travel around the world to be able to keep on flying. In the past years Carlos has been constantly flying his tandem in Vancouver Canada, The Cauca Valley in Colombia and of course beautiful Cape Town South Africa. Earlier this year Carlos guided the Flyspain Columbia Trip and he did not disappoint. In true wolf style, leading from the back, Carlos would regularly spiral down to the lowest or last pilot and guide them up to base, ensuring his group stayed together, and did so with ease. Check out a video of our adventures in Colombia with Carlos.

As part of Flyspain's increasingly popular XC Guided Holidays and continued development across our growing business we wanted to offer our customers more insight into the mysterious world of competition flying. Our XC Guided Holidays have been such a success in the past few years with many memorable flights and some eye watering distances achieved by our guests. The world of competition flying eludes many pilots with potential and we hope to break those boundaries and open up new dimensions to XC paragliding for many.
