Although most pilots joining this course will already have some XC experience, others will come hoping to have XC flying demystified. Paragliding is a truly extraordinary experience. We believe that learning to fly XC should be an evolutionary experience based on the understanding of how our glider flows and moves in a mountain environment and get the most from our XC flying.
We learn best by practice. Our number one aim will be to give you the opportunity to fly as much and as safely as possible. Because we know you want to be as safe as you can be and have as much fun as possible we are proposing to spend approximately one hour each day (usually in the morning) exploring topics related to XC and mountain flying.
Portugal Paragliding is proud to collaborate with Club Vertical. Located in the center of our country with one of the best playgrounds for XC and Termal flights. With a long history since the beginning of Paragliding in Portugal and with the most respected Paragliding Pilots and Instructors em Portugal.
The Clube Vertical de Voo Livre has hosted several Competitions organisations such as the Portuguese calendar and also the British and Nordic Opens, several PWC competitions and European Championships tasks. We couldn’t be more proud to belong to this club and share these flight locations with our pilots and students.
With the aim to promote what our country has to offer, you can progress in the XC Discipline with the best professionals.
Let us take you to the best experiences and meet your expectations.
Each day will be designed around a key topic with the express aim of keeping you safer and with a better understanding of what involves flying efficiently and performing better
As we encourage each and every pilot to progress at their own pace and fly only in conditions that they understand and are comfortable with, we are confident that most pilots will learn a great deal from this experience. Whether your aim is to achieve a 100km mountain flight, rack up some airtime or simply and slowly gain confidence in a flying environment; we’ll be here to help. Most importantly, we believe you’ll enjoy a lot and go home wanting to come back for more.
