In November the Free Flight team will once again be closing the season by heading down to the Atlantic coast of Morocco for some relaxed and chilled out flying. We are going to be based in the town of Mirleft in the South of Morocco, which is a small town and rural commune approximately one and half hours south of Agadir. It is a lovely location, which takes you away from the tourist areas and into the heart of this enchanting country.
We will be staying a short drive to the main flying site, which consists of a 5km thermic soaring ridge set back 2km from the Atlantic coast. The daily sea breeze combined with thermals generated in the flat and dry land at the front of the ridge, creates near guaranteed flying conditions for long flights along the entire ridge.
In addition to the home site there are 3 other flying sites within 20km, giving us the chance to get a good look at the local area and try some of the local culture and cuisine that Morocco has to offer. It is at one of these sites that one of my all time favourite landing spots is located. You land on a beach of rock arches, which at sunset is truly stunning and then enjoy fresh seafood, Moroccan cuisine and post flying sunset cocktails at a restaurant right on the beach.
The accommodation on this trip consists of traditional Moroccan style rooms and the price of the trip is on a HALF BOARD basis. It really is the perfect place to soak up the sun, relax and enjoy paragliding without any fuss.
This trip is ideal for all levels of pilot as there will be two instructor guides available and the take off area is large and easy. It is a particularly ideal spot for some top landing practice.
So don’t put your glider into winter hibernation too early, come and join us for some end of season fun in 2019.

To benefit from the free airport transfers you will need to arrange your flights to fit set pick up / drop off times at Agadir (AGA) airport.
- Pick up times will be at 20:15 (Saturday 2nd November and 9th November)
- Drop off time will be 17:00 (9th and 16th November)
These pick up and drop off times are to meet the Ryanair flight from London Stansted and Manchester and the Easyjet flight from London Gatwick the easiest direct flights from the UK (both arrive and depart within 10 minutes of each other).
N.B. If you wish to choose flights which do not match the transfer times, we can arrange an airport pick up for an additional 70 Euros per transfer (max 4 people per transfer)
