Hello, my name is Xirli and I look forward to taking you to fly in a Sailplane.
But before flying, it is important for me to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable whilst in the air so you can fully enjoy this wonderful experience.
“You’ll be flying at the very best flying sites around Barcelona, with a personalized plan that suits you and your flying needs”.
Do you want to fly in a Sailplane tandem safely, with professional knowledge and advice, every step of the way?
Fly with Xirli offers Sailplane flights to passengers who have never done sailplaning before (who will fly in tandem with a pilot).
Flying a sailplane is a sport that involves piloting an aircraft without an engine, taking advantage of the movements of the air masses.
The objective of the sport is to learn how to take advantage of the opportunity to ascend, gain altitude, and travel distances.
This sport is practiced in an extraordinary environment, surrounded by mountains that favor the practice of this aerial modality.
Choose one of 3 flight options:
- a 25-minute, basic flight
- a 45-minute, long flight, or
- a 90-minute, very long flight.
Are you ready? We will use a tow plane to make the sailplane take off, to perform the option you have chosen.
A 25-minute, basic flight
This option is ideal if you want to fly for the first time on a Sailplane.
You will receive basic theoretical instruction explaining how the sailplane works, how it turns, what we have to do to pilot it, etc.
We can take off now!
The instructor will pilot the sailplane until it has climbed to 2000 m above the vertical of the aerodrome, then we unhook the cable from the tow plane. From this moment on, it is the passenger who pilots the sailplane.
A 45-minute, long flight
This option is highly recommended for passengers who wish to have more knowledge of this sport or pilots from other disciplines who wish to experience new sensations.
On the long flight, in addition to explaining the theory of standard flight, the passenger will receive an explanation of the thermal, such as why the sailplane goes up and why it stops going up.
The instructor will pilot the sailplane until the thermal is centered. From this moment on, it is the passenger who pilots the sailplane.
A 90-minute, very long flight
Normally this option is ideal for pilots from other disciplines who want to fly with higher performance.
On the very long flight, in addition to explaining the standard flight theory, the passenger will receive an explanation of the thermal, why the glider goes up, and why it stops going up.
The instructor will pilot the glider until the thermal is centered. From this moment on, it is the passenger who pilots the sailplane.
Feel the pure adrenaline! It is a fantastic experience.
It is true, that the turns in thermals are 45º upwards, but they do not represent great complexity.
Discover the pleasure of flying in silence in the company of birds. The aim is to fly between mountains, close to the clouds… and without a motor. Simply indescribable!
You have to experience it!
We are in a privileged area for sailplaning, flying without a motor, taking advantage of its unbeatable orographic and air currents characteristics, essential for this kind of flight.
The meteorological and orographic conditions of the valley have placed the aerodrome as a European benchmark for the practice of this specialty.
For many, it is the purest discipline of flight. A sailplane will allow you to experience unique sensations, such as staying in the air with no other fuel than the energy you can use from thermals and air currents.
The aerodrome offers a friendly and familiar environment with a restaurant, a swimming pool, a children’s play area and wonderful views of La Cerdanya.
The valley provides great conditions for the pilots to practice sailplaning as well as enjoyment for friends and families.
