Here the climate conditions are unique in Europe, open to most wind directions providing us with consistently good flying conditions that enable us to fly uninterrupted and where one can fly thermals and cross country nearly all year round, depending on the pilot's skill.
Paragliding and hand gliding instructors, Airborne adventures are running paragliding and hang-gliding holidays for pilots and for their partners and/or families who are more than welcome to participate on the trips, or to get involved in other activities available. Popular local paragliding area, Valle de Abdalajís, has a number of launches with different orientations and the micro climate gives rise to a cloud base of between 1,500 - 2,500 metres, providing good size thermals.
South-westerly winds from the Straits of Gibraltar offer the opportunity for an early morning take-off, but flying can start as late in the day as 2pm, in the summer as late as 6 – 7pm when the southwest launch area is in full sun, and can continue through to sunset.
Paragliding and hang-gliding holidays, expert paragliding pilot with more than seven years flying experience in this area. Paragliding coach and experienced flyer in competitions in Andalucia.
