Italy, Abruzzo - June 2020

We are pleased to announce in 2020 Free Flight Academy are once again returning to the fabulous region of central Italy called Abruzzo. In the past this trip has proved to be one of our most popular trips, with people frequently returning for more, so with only two weeks available we’d recommend signing up quick!

This trip is a relaxed thermalling course, aimed at both the low air time pilot who wants to build confidence and skills and the more experienced pilot wanting to enjoy some of the most beautiful flying sites I have found in Europe. It is an ideal location with wide grassy launches , football field sized landing sites and the added bonus of Italian food. I can assure you we have (rather selflessly) done some intensive research on your behalf and located some fantastic places to eat and debrief the day’s flying. I guarantee you the metre of pizza, BBQ meats, pasta and wine will not disappoint.

At Free Flight Academy we pride ourselves on always offering good quality accommodation and in Abruzzo it is no exception. Our accommodation is set amongst some stunning scenery, with room options to suit singles, twin or doubles. Photos can be found in the image carousel below.


The cost of the trip is £650 per person

Book just one week or two together!
