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 the large difference in height between the take-off and landing area, there is plenty of time for comfortable entry into the first thermal tube.

On this tour we have two main focuses: Firstly, we focus on learning and improving thermal flight 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.
We provide you with relevant basic theoretical knowledge in easy-to-understand briefings in the morning, after which you draw the perfect thermal circles in the updraft under observation.

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 thermalling, just stop by the pool and enjoy the Greek hospitality.
