Spot guidance

Retrieve (XC)

On the coast you can get good weather all year round. Depending on the exact direction and strength of wind, we will take you to the right spot within a short drive. The best time to fly on the beach is from October to May. The westerly winds tend to dominate not only on the coastline but inland too, allowing long boarder-crossing fligths into Spain. From May to end of September the conditions are the best for XC. The middle months, June-August, are more demanding which require good and confident piloting skills.

The Destination

Portugal is the hidden treasurebox in the SW corner of Europe. Its mediterranian landscapes rich in historical monuments, olive and cork trees, fishing villages with delicious food and wine along the whole country will leave you astonished. The portuguese are welcoming and warm-hearted people, always ready to help. Although we'll pass by famous spots, we will show you the real Portugal.

The Experience

Portugal offers you high-quality flights throughout the whole country. From south, through western till north-east winds, you can find amazing spots along the several-hundred-kilometer-long coastline with huge diversity on the landscape from friendly sandy dunes to majestic rocky parts. Inland you will have the chance to fly big triangles on the less windy days and go really far when the conditions set in. Always challenging but safe conditions will surely improve your skills at all levels. Astonishing and unique landscapes will follow your flight, friendly vultures will help you to find the thermals and welcoming locals will ensure that you are not thirsty and hungry until retrieve arrives.

N.B. for safety reasons and for efficient retrieve service, live-tracking device is compulsory if you go XC.

Itinerary

We offer a complete and mixed-trip. We will pick you up from Lisbon Airport on the first day and after spending the first night in the capital we will head 120km north to Nazaré, which will be the base for our costal flying. Within easy reach there are plenty of take-offs along the coast. After a few days of beach we will travel inland to the Mountains to meet the thermals and try to fly far. We will be chasing the good weather and chasing you flying. In case the weather does not allow flying in one day or another, there are plenty of alternative options to chose from (kite-surfing, sailing , caving, wine&food tasting, sightseeing, trekking in the Mountains etc.).
