2 Days paragliding trip with a P3 pilot from Oxford (England). June
A pilot from Oxford hires guide-accompanying service “Fly with Xirli” to paragliding for 2 days, around Barcelona.
I prepare a Fully personalized trip to suit you. I will show you the best flying sites according to the weather forecasts. Every day we will move to the best flying site to avoid stormy weather, using a Fly with Xirli’s car. It’s an Off-Road High-Performance Company car, with easy access even in the most difficult landing sites.
Exclusive service only for you. No waiting for other people to fill the car.
My client is an English pilot who has not flown for a long time, although he has a lot of experience, and wants to regain the sensations of the flight.
We have 3 days so that my pilot can fly in suitable conditions for his expectations, but the weather forecast will only allow us to fly in a single area, and only 2 days.
So, once the weather forecast for all the flight zones in Barcelona has been checked, I propose to my pilot to move to Castejón de Sos, which is about 3 hours away from Barcelona and we will spend a night in the town. In this way, my pilot will be able to know the flight area well.
Castejón de Sos is the farthest flight zone from Barcelona, but it is the best area for my pilot to fly, for the following reasons:
- The weather forecasts will let us fly throughout the first day and part of the second day.
- The takeoff is at 2,100m a.s.l. and landing is at 950m a.s.l. There is 1,000m of elevation gain between takeoff and landing, so you are guaranteed a minimum glide of 20 minutes, in case you don’t find any lift during your flight.
- My pilot has made 5 flights, one of which, the last, has been a performance flight, in which, finally, my pilot has recovered the sensations to do good piloting.
The last flight was spectacular. My pilot ascended using thermal currents, and he flew so long that he decided to land because he was already tired of flying so long.
I was proud to see that my pilot has fulfilled his dream of regaining the skills to fly well in high mountain areas.
Not only was he flying but we also discovered the area, where farmers cultivate the land of fruit trees and sell them to the customer without going through the supermarkets, but directly from the trees to the customer’s shopping cart.
We also take the opportunity to enjoy the local restaurants and the tranquility of the valleys of the Pyrenees mountains.
Anyway, my client was very satisfied with the experience of flying with me and promised to come back!
