Learn in the Sun :)
Puerto de Mazarron...a beautiful place to learn to fly
The coastal area of Mazarron is home to some of the finest beaches in Spain. The main bay of Puerto de Mazarron is also surrounded by the mountain ranges of Sierra Moreras, Almenara, Algorobo, Lo Alto, Muela and slightly further to the North, Sierra Espuña. This gives the bay of Mazarron a "microclimate" which invariably results in better weather than the rest of Spain. Puerto de Mazarron boasts more than 300 days of sunshine every year. Other areas of Spain might be greener, but there is a good reason for that :)
Melodie who is one of our T.I’s grew up in Puerto de Mazarron, her parents being one of the first English families to move to the area, back in the early eighties. She fell in love with the stunning back drop of mountains, only separated from the sea by a small fishing village and a beautiful beach, out towards Isla Plana and La Azohia. When we decided to look for a brand new location, we wanted to be able to offer an equal balance of paramotor and uncrowded paragliding sites, and also a much better selection of things to do on non flyable days, and for non flying partners. We explored the area and it became obvious that Mazarron bay would be perfect.
For paramotoring there are several areas where you can launch safely and fly around the Coastline, and so in addition to the courses and training that we currently offer, you will have the unique opportunity once qualified, to simply pack some clothes, arrive and hire a motor and wing to fly. Travelling abroad with your paramotor, in search of sunshine can be hard work and costly, so we hope this option will appeal to motor pilots wanting to get some more airtime in a dry and stunning location.
For non flyable days, partners & family, or indeed if you simply want to split your week between flying, and spending time doing something else, the beaches are beautiful and offer an array of water sports. There are kayaks, jet skies, pedalos, fishing, glass bottom boat trips, a beautiful new marina and several diving schools, all within a 15 minute stroll from our accommodation. The diving in the area is superb and there are several wrecks that qualified divers can explore. A short car ride away you can also visit a Roman Amphitheatre, natural free hot springs, the “Guns of Mazarron” (google this on you tube, it’s a stunning location and definitely worth a visit) Sierra Espuna natural park and Cartagena, to name just a few of the many places of natural beauty and interest. We will also be able to offer cycle hire in the very near future, giving you an even nicer way to explore the coastline.
Eating out you will be spoilt for choice, as there are some fantastic fish restaurants, as well as traditional Spanish, Chinese, Italian, English and Indian,
so something for everyone’s taste buds.
Mazarron allows us to offer something for everyone, and our aim is to be able to offer you a flying holiday, where you can learn, train, progress, relax, and either fly every day and really build up your hours, or split the week between flying and other activities, giving you the opportunity to spend time with non flying partners,
where they will also get the most out of the trip.
We are also able to offer free use of a pool and sun terraces,
only a two minute stroll from the school.
No more worrying about how you’re going to be able to manage a flying trip AND a “traditional” holiday to keep your other half happy ;)
