Northern Greece Thermal/XC Beginners Camp

Pleasure flying thermals and XC

The best cross-country flying area in Greece is located in the north, protected by high mountains and within the influence of the continental climate. Reliable thermals and near-perfect topography create the ideal terrain here for beautiful thermal flights and creative XC adventures. Thanks to a large difference in altitude between the take-off and landing field, there is plenty of time for a comfortable entry into the first thermal.

On this tour we focus on two things: First, we focus on learning and improving thermal flying skills. We show you how to move optimally in the terrain to find thermals. Then we practice techniques to get the most out of the thermals.

We place a second emphasis on planning and executing carefree cross-country flights.
In easy-to-understand briefings in the morning, we will teach you the relevant theoretical basics, before you start to observe the perfect thermal circles in the upwind.

As always, the focus is on the fun of flying. At the same time, it is our ambition to improve the flying skills and theoretical understanding of every pilot. If you’ve had enough of cranking, just stop by the pool and enjoy the Greek hospitality.
