We are close to the start of our season in June, but the worldwide, Covid-19 pandemic is likely to cause problems.
As soon as the Spanish government allows it we will be open for business, but we don't know what restrictions will be placed on visitors to Spain. Some airlines may be operating, but some have already cancelled flights to at least mid-June. If you able to get here, we are open for business and like most of you are extremely impatient to get back to flying.
If you have problems with travel restrictions or flights we can move your booking to later in the year or even into next year. If the basic service places are included, around 50% of the places for this season are still available and most of these are towards the end of the season, so we have the capacity to make changes. This could mean that although you booked on full service we might not have room for you in the house, but if there is the demand, we could look at booking another house in the town.
Welcome to flyPiedrahita. Within this website you will find information about paragliding and hang gliding in Piedrahita the legendary flying site in Spain.
Whether you make your visit with us or arrange your own trip, we hope that this website will give you the essential information you need and a flavour of this unique and wonderful place, Piedrahita.
We have played an important part in the growth of Piedrahita as one of the most famous sites in the world, pioneering flying routes, organising some of the worlds premier events and escorting hundreds of pilots on their early XC adventures.
We hope you enjoy our website and find it interesting and useful.
Airport collection and return, breakfast and accommodation, an evening meal, retrieves along the day's specified route, guidance, instruction and XC tandem flights if desired. All this is described in detail in our bookings section.
We also arrange alternative activities if the weather is bad and can offer white water rafting/kayaking, power kiting, kite and windsurfing and trips to Salamanca or Avila at no extra cost and other activities such as horse riding and skiing as an extra.
The flying is a mixture of mountain and flatland flying. The area is famed for its convergence, high altitude and easy XC and soaring conditions for both low airtime and expert alike.
We do our utmost to ensure you get the maximum from each flying day. This gives opportunities to those looking to get to grips with their first thermals during the morning and evening flights, as well as to those chasing their XC personal bests during the stronger convective part of the afternoon.
