Guided Weeks

Thermalling holidays in good company...

Club Pilot Plus XC Weeks Coaching with Carlucho 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 seven 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

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.

 

We have a variety of houses available including our HQ, the 'Eagle's Nest'.  Accommodation is based on twin rooms, although you can book a single person supplement to get a room to yourself.  All houses have shared fully fitted kitchens, washing machines etc. and there is a supermarket in the village for supplies. Towels are also provided. 

 

Deposits are required to guarantee a place on either tuition or holiday weeks, this should be paid via our online booking system. 

Deposits are our commitment to you to run the course regardless of numbers, so no danger of us cancelling last minute

Your balance must be paid 28 days prior to your arrival, you can pay this online by going to 'Manage My Booking' under the Calendar tab on our website homepage. If you are having a problem paying online, first check with your bank as sometimes they block payment as a security check. If this continues please email us so that we can make other arrangements.

Cancellations: Deposits are strictly non refundable. Cancellations less than a month before the course or failure to attend a course or holiday will mean the full payment of the place to be paid. We try and keep our course and holiday numbers sensible so as to achieve the great results that we do, therefore numbers are strictly limited. Please make sure you buy holiday insurance that will cover you for unforseen cancellations or postponements.

 

Thermalling is flying around in circles to stay in the areas of best lift exactly the same way as the birds, like kites & buzzards or Griffin Vultures (which you see in this country all year round). Average good climb rates in Britain during the summer are around 400 feet per minute although 900 to 1000 feet per minute is not unheard off.

There is nothing to compare to the buzz you get from banking a glider onto it's wing tip and rising skywards in a strong, smooth thermal, ground features getting smaller with every turn. One student on his first trip abroad said to me following his first thermic flight "I am so glad that I’ve not gone through my entire life without experiencing that incredible flight". All this and more is open to you in the world of paragliding and it is one of the few adventure sports where women can compete on equal terms with men as physical strength or body weight is not an issue.

Our Mentor plus Paragliding holidays are aimed at low airtime pilots, balanced courses and holidays to educate and teach pilots new skills to get the best from their flying and go cross country on a paraglider using thermals.

A bucket load of flying, thermalling and cross country flights depending on what the weather offers and what standard you are. we offer full Gps tracking support to help you concentrate on your flying and leave the logistics to us.

 

 

We include full retrieve, daily briefings and route planning, use of our FlyMaster trackers and full guiding from one of our top paragliding pilots. Also included is airport collection (1pm drop off and pick up on dates given on the Calender), accomodation, guiding and transportation during the week.

 

Yes if you are on a guided or Siv week, two metres, not PMR or shortwave.

No if you are on a tuition week, all kit is provided.

 

Yes, it's all about going up and going distance, that said if you want to stay on the hill and soar and not go Xc that's fine too.
