  • further information

    Students should aim to arrive and depart on a Sunday as the Courses start at 09.00 on Monday morning and end on Saturday afternoon. The courses follow the APPI PPG training syllabus.

    During the day please bring appropriate footwear (ankle supporting boots are recommended), water, food suncream and suitable clothing for the time of year, including a jacket and trousers as it can get cold while flying.

    The nearest airports are Jerez, Seville, Gibraltar and Malaga. We recommend students hire a car in order to not only make your travel from the airport to Lake Bornos very easy but also to give you more freedom to explore the region when not training.

    We will connect students together on a WhatsApp group a month or so before the course allowing you to discuss sharing hire cars. We require students sitting a course in Spain to have their own Insurance. If you have any questions please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you offer Paramotor Training in Spain?

The training sites in Spain are Lake Bornos, which is about 1 hour south of Seville and 2 hours west of Malaga. We also fly from Conil de la Frontera on the coast, which is 1 hour west of Gibraltar and close to the famous Cape Trafalgar.

Where and when do we fly to in Spain and when do the courses start and finish?

Students should fly into and out of Malaga or Seville Airports on a Sunday. The courses start at 9am on Monday morning and finish around 18:00 on Saturday afternoon. Sunday is the Team's day off.

What are the best transport options in Spain?

Most people share the cost of hire cars having liaised together over the flight times via the WhatsApp Group that we send out in the pre course email. This helps keep the transport costs down quite considerably.

How easy is it to learn to Paramotor in Spain?

The consistent weather, both at Lake Bornos and on the coast, as well as the large, unobstructed sites, makes Spain one of the best Paramotoring and ParaTriking training locations in Europe.

What is the best place to Paramotor in Spain?

Our favourite site is on the coast at Conil de la Frontera as the on shore breeze makes the conditions extremely smooth. It is also possible to fly all day as there are no thermals on the coast. When not flying there are plenty of good restaurants, some of which you can fly to!

How safe is it to Paramotor in Spain?

It is very safe to learn how to Paramotor in Portugal. The golden rule is to never fly low over the water. The wide open training site at Lake Bornos ensures there are very few obstacles that create rotor or for the the student to be distracted by when taking off or landing. Likewise the wide, open beaches ensure we never need to fly over the sea at any stage. The on shore laminar winds make flying on the coast really smooth and ideal for Paramotoring and ParaTriking.
