Club Pilot Plus XC Weeks The Chorizo Cup

Club Pilot Mentor Plus

Learning doesn’t stop at school 

A Holiday based on building your confidence not battering it. FlySpain pioneered the Club Pilot Mentor Plus holidays here some ten years ago. It’s aimed at rusty or low airtime pilots looking to build airtime, build confidence and learn new skills. 

Why Pilot Mentor program?

Unlike other guides, we will assign you instructors who will work with you from Day 1 specifically to your flying needs. This ties in well with the BHPA pilot development program, but we've also put together a thermal syllabus which you can also work through while you're here.

  • Who does this suit? - (Cp + or Para P2/3) Newly qualified to rusty pilots 
  • What can I expect? - Friendly launches, big landing fields, instructors on hand and time spent polishing your ground handling. Tips and tricks to give you confidence when you go back home plus work through our very own Thermalling 101 syllabus
  • Aim of the week - Boost airtime and confidence, learn how to thermal in perfect learning and flying conditions
  • Morning Daily Met briefings
  • Thermal lectures
  • Post-flight debrief
  • Personal Mentor plan with your instructor
  • Planned goals each day
  • Time set aside for ground handling if needed
  • Learn to control your glider on Launch and In flight
  • Learn to thermal, track and map climbs
  • Learn how to find second climbs
  • Get in-flight air to air coaching
  • Fly with more confidence
  • How often do they run? - 2-3 weeks per month from September until June.
  • When is the best time to come paragliding? - From high bases to long soaring days... all year round
  • What do I need - Complete set of Pg equipment, including a 2-meter Radio 

If you are unsure what course would be most suitable then do drop us a line, we are here to help!

New for 2018:  Buy an hours tandem flight with your guide

They'll take you up in the middle of the day and work specifically on both flying, thermalling technique and decision making. To buy a tandem flight, simply add it to your booking whilst putting in your flight details in the manage booking area
