Aerodromo Ordis is approximately 10 minutes from Figueres, the birth place of Salvador Dali, and only 25 minutes from the Costa Brava coastline. The location is easily accessible both by air, road and rail. The AP-7 motorway runs straight past Figueres making the French border less than 30 minutes to the north and Barcelona 2 hours to the south. It is also now possible to travel from London to Figueres by train in less than 11 hours.
All courses start at 9.00am on Monday morning and end on Saturday afternoon. Students should therefore aim to arrive and depart on a Sunday.

Directions to Aerodromo Ordis
If hiring a car from Girona Airport we recommend one takes the AP-7 Toll road north towards Figueres. Leave the AP-7 just south of Figueres at Junction 4. After going through the toll booth take the first right hand exit at the round about along the GIV-5128 sign posted Olot, Besalu or Navata. Follow this road for approximately 5 minutes going straight over every round about until you reach a T junction. This is the N-260 and at this point you should turn right and drive approximately 500m before turning right again at Kilometer marker '45', sign posted 'Aeroclub Ordis' on a yellow background. If you get to 'Mas Pau' you have gone 2 kilometers too far. The gate is electronic so text Alex on +44 7747 097 527 to be given the code.
Accident and Travel Insurance
SkySchool recommends Sports Cover Direct or Dogtag for insurance and we also recommend all British students bring an EHIC card which is free and offers reduced cost medical treatment in Europe. Travel Insurance is also a necessity in the event of flight cancellations and other unseen events. For further information contact us.
