Paragliding Holidays

LEARN TO PARAGLIDE IN FRANCE OR SPAIN

Cheap flights and generally good weather make Southern Europe ideal for Paragliding holidays. We have many years experience running paragliding holidays abroad to France, Spain Austria and Greece. To paraglide, beginners need gentle safe slopes and stable conditions, with the more Advanced Pilot requiring larger sites with conditions suitable for cross country flights.

A guide to Airsports Paragliding Holidays in Europe.

Complete Beginners
will require, stable, light wind conditions with little or no thermal activity, low slopes for the first few days and then higher sites with large landing and take off areas. France in May and September is normally ideal, Spain in November and February can be good.

Elementary to Club Pilot
paragliding Holidays abroad are perfect for completing your Club Pilot tasks. With good weather this can be achieved in one week and normally some thermal flying as well! Nearly all the guests on our paragliding holidays have met each other while training for their Elementary pilot and this makes for a fantastic atmosphere.

Club Pilot and beyond.
These Paragliding holidays are available to all our past students who are welcome on any trip. If you are not on our mailing list please drop us an email

France
where paragliding started, has more flying sites and schools than any other country in Europe. With grass slopes, stunning scenery and generally very good flying conditions.
Spain
is good for winter flying, generally October November, January and February can be good although the sites tend to be more rocky and less forgiving.

PLEASE NOTE
Paragliding abroad is not the same as paragliding in the UK and unless you only intend to fly abroad we would recommend starting or completing your Elementary Pilot in the UK during the summer, when the weather is generally good, and then complete your Club Pilot on a holiday.

BHPA British licence.
