Learn to control your glider in any situation. Focus on flight high and far! You will practice in a safe environment and with an effective method continuosly updated, minimazing stress and adapted to every pilot. We are one of the most experienced SIV school in Europe. To pilots of any level, specially thought for pilots with low experience, bofore fly in strong conditions
SIV instructor is Jordi Marquillas. SIV and ACRO instructor since 2003. APPI Master instructor. EN norm test pilot since 2005 for Aérotésts (FFVL). He is in constant connection with paraglider design evolutions and reactions. He has been in acro and XC Spanish and Catalan national team.
Courses take place in Sant Antoni lake, near La Pobla de Segur, 40’
far from Àger where we have the school. The area is known for its regular
breeze and protected from West and North strong winds allowing us to fly many days
over the year and practically we have to cancel 0 courses every year.
This is not a flying site and only it’s possible to fly with a towing boat, so we
are flying alone, without any disturbing gliders or pilots around.
Also is a touristic place with a little beach and a bar-restaurant (Xiringuito)
near the take-off/landing place where we normally go to lunch.
Quality vs Quantity
Flights per day is intentionally limited. It's impossible to assimilate any knowledge in a stress situation. Every flight has an average usable height of 800m, so 2 flights for day is enough to do a lot of manoeuvres. Also, we need more days for the theoretical part. We will do 2-3 flights per day, what almost all pilots can assimilate. More flights only put more stress and no knowledge. Only more unsafe and frustration feeling. Every day we have practical and theoretical lessons.
At Entrenúvols we are specialists in towing with a lot of experience in courses, competitions, test sessions and shows.
You will fly in a safe environement with a very experienced team of professionals.
First day: 17h. Meeting at Entrenúvols paragliding school to be able to do the registration, gear safety check and first day briefing. Rest of the days: 9h - midday: We meet at the lake (near the Xiringuito) to do the flights. Afternoon: Flights video analysis, theoretical lessons and next day flights briefing.
