    Colombia XC 3

    Colombia gives you a great opportunity to get some equatorial XC flying while northern Europe is still in the icy grip of winter. You should go home having flown hundreds of kilometers and dozens of hours, completely current for the start of the flying season in the northern hemisphere. The course includes tuition, briefings, air-to-air training and lectures. For an additional feel, we will also manage the transport, B&B accommodation for 13 nights.

  3. Israel XC Tour

    Israel XC Tour

    After the success of our first trip to Israel in 2018, we are very excited about our second paragliding trip to this beautiful, diverse country. Sites and conditions should be suitable for most levels of pilot skill in this amazing historical area.

    April is considered spring time in Israel, and should give us the opportunity to fly several fascinating and diverse sites before the weather settles down and becomes stable with a constant wind direction for the summer months.

    Imagine soaring the eastern shoreline of the Mediteranean, north of the city of Tel Aviv, along cliffs and sand dunes, leading on to soar the tower blocks and hotels of Natanya, then the next day perhaps flying XC from Mt Tavor over the sea of Galilee on to the Golan Heights.

    We also plan to go back to fly at the Dead Sea, where we had fantastic flying this spring. We took off at 7 meters below sea level, flew for and hour and a half landing 25km further north and 407 meters below sea level!!

    Spring time in Israel hosts the migration for many bird species. You will most likely be soaring and thermalling alongside great bird species migrating between Africa and Europe, this year we had the pleasure of flying with gaggles of hundreds of storks, an unforgettable experience.

    The course will start at 9am on July 7th and finish in the evening of 13th July.

    You will learn all aspects of controlling your wing during the SIV. Then, you should be able to fly XC with the added confidence and skill in glider control, which allows you to focus on positive things like finding lift and coring, which frees your mind and helps you fly further.

    Followed by this week of intensive training, if you choose, you can participate in the Ozone Krushevo Open competition, run by Jocky as the Meet Director, from 14th July to 20th July.
