    The dates shown on the calendar are Arrival and Departure dates only.

    The course starts the following morning. i.e. our calendar EP course dates 4-10 march. Arrive with us on Sunday 4th to settle in, the course starts early on Monday. The course finishes on Friday evening, your departure travel day being Saturday 10th.

    Courses vary,  such as the Zero to Hero ppg course, Please check dates carefully. 

    If you arrive outside those times we can help organise either a taxi or point you to a bus or car rental.

    Spain courses:

    The shuttle is at the airport at 1pm on your day of arrival. Please aim to land by 12:30 to be clear of the airport building by 1pm (Spanish time). On departure day (Saturday) it leaves the village at 11am and drops off at the airport for 1p.m. Flights leaving after 15:00 give plenty of time to check-in. If you can't coordinate your flights within these times, alternatively grab a taxi or hire car.

    Turkey Course: No Free Shuttle

    Airport transfers, typically everyone arrives at slightly different time in to Dalaman, there is a shuttle that runs fairly regularly to Oludeniz, or you can get a cheap 30-50 euro taxi, we might be able to organise a joint pick up (shared fare with others nearer the time)

     

    Paragliding Ep beginners courses or paramotoring make for a great family activity holiday. You can now qualify at age 14  but you can learn to fly earlier with an adult present depending on your weight and fitness.

    We’d only encourage children to do what they felt they were happy to do so if they felt too nervous with high altitude then they could stop there. There are issues with weight, so in truth any student pilot under 35 kilos would probably struggle.  Drop us a line if you are unsure

      Fortunately our courses are very popular, they are regularly fully booked often months in advance. We like to run small groups so our clients get the best service we can offer which means last minute cancellations are quite inconvienient both for the client and ourselves, equally we want to try and be as accomodating as possible. If we can refill your place then we are happy to move your booking to another date but if we are unable to refill your place we  sadly wont be able to refund your money. Life is full of unexpected events so we urge everyone to insure their holidays as soon as you make your booking, that way, should something unexpected arise no one needs to be inconvienienced.
