Morocco CP completion and progression - Nov 2020
21st - 28th November 2020.
We will again be venturing to Southern Morocco for some sublime coastal soaring in this amazingly reliable and easily accessible flying paradise.
This trip is ideal for any pilots struggling to finish their CP tasks in the UK due to the winter weather or any pilots wishing to progress further and rack up some flying hours. Suitable weather conditions can never be guaranteed anywhere but this area is one of the most reliable we have found at this time of year. We expect people to finish their remaining CP tasks quickly and then move on progressing and refining their skills. Although this is primarily a coastal soaring location, there are gentle thermals at times, and once finished with your CP tasks, you can learn to do 360 turns and try some gentle thermalling. We will already be staying on the main and best flying site but, if the conditions dictate, we will also visit some other local flying sites within a short drive.
We will be staying in a resort dedicated to paragliding with it’s own purpose made launch just a few steps from your room. The hotel is on a half board basis and it includes your own room, breakfast and evening meals. The hotel has a bar/restaurant, authentically decorated Moroccan rooms, infinity pool, table football, table tennis, rooftop sunset bar/briefing area etc etc. You can even visit their hammam for authentic Moroccan massages after a days flying.
- Half board (breakfast and evening meal) accommodation with your own room
- Airport transfers
- Six days of possible tuition including transport/retrieves
What’s not included
- Flights to/from UK/Agadir
- Insurance cover
You will need to be a current BHPA member and also must have additional holiday accident cover that includes paragliding. You can get this from a number of places online. I use jsinsurance.co.uk with additional sports cover. Paragliding is covered if you call them although not shown on their website.
You should have your own paragliding equipment which is new or recently and suitable serviced including a glider, reserve parachute, harness, helmet and good ankle supporting boots. You don’t need a vario but it will help you once you finish your CP tasks if you do. Please see https://airsportsparagliding.co.uk/shop/ for a selection of altimeter/varios if required. If you don’t have your own then we may have some available to rent.
To make the airport transfers simpler all participants should arrive on the same flight from Gatwick which will be arranged nearer the time. If you are arriving on a different flight then you may need to make your own transfer arrangements. Taxis are available.
This flying holiday will cost £995 and a £200 down payment will be required to secure a place with the balance payable nearer the time.
