Cross Country Course in Algodonales

THE WEATHER CONDITIONS ALLOWS US TO FLY THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE YEAR!

Cross Country (XC)

Intended for XC pilots who want to make the most of the flying opportunities in the Algodonales area for practicing thermal and cross-country paragliding.

Also suitable for those who want to start and learn XC flying with the assistance of an instructor and guide, or for those looking to advance their flight techniques to improve their thermal and cross-country flights.

 

Each day will include a theoretical class, a participatory day planning session based on the weather, and a subsequent analysis and review of the day’s flights.

 

Our flying areas:  Algodonales or, depending on the weather, in nearby areas such as El Bosque, Montellano, or Cañete la Real. If the weather conditions only allow flying on the Atlantic coast (Matalascañas), we will offer the option to travel there.

 

OBJECTIVE:

The goal of the sessions is to achieve distance flights and create a group of pilots to exchange experiences and foster a positive and motivating sports atmosphere, both in the air and on the ground.

 

We will travel in a spacious and comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. If we can’t fly due to unforeseen weather conditions, we’ll offer alternative activities in the area.

 

Algodonales is a world-renowned spot for long-distance free flight, and the region offers ideal conditions for all types of flights. On many occasions, we might fly twice a day, with an evening flight following the XC (cross-country) flight.

I took my first course with Alex over 12 years ago and have flown with them ever since (we usually spend between 2 and 4 months in Spain every year), so over 260 flights to date. Alejandro and the other tandem pilots are all excellent - from piloting skills (essential), to ensuring you understand the process of taking off and landing. As important, is knowing when to fly, and when it is best to either wait for conditions to improve, or occasionally reschedule to another day. Safety is Paramount. Unfortunately some companies are more interested in making money, than client safety. I've seen a number of tandems flights when it has been dangerous, but they have still taken off with an unsuspecting client - who may have landed safely but had a bad experience !!! Airbourne Adventures (Alejandro & Carina) really is a "club". Everyone is made really welcome, regardless of whether you are doing a full course or a once in a lifetime tandem.

Alex and Carina who gave me my first lessons are excellent instructors with many years experience - they offer tailored instruction to suit the individual. They work at your own pace and nothing is too much trouble. We travelled to different locations in the local area and met some very interesting people. We also flew tandem as part of the course and felt very safe during the flight whilst being taught the basics of flight control. Airborn is highly recommended to any one who wants to learn this exciting hobby/sport. Adiós till next time......
