    Who is this trip for:

    Complete beginners can start their paragliding adventure on this course, It is also suitable for pilots who have had a lay off of 6 months or more to get back into the sport, with lots of ground practice and nice easy soaring conditions typically. Paramotor pilots may wish to take this course as a very important part of their training. It also makes a lovely relaxed flying holiday for more experienced pilots.

    11 day option (Includes Atlas week)This option starts in Agadir for a pilot who is somewhere close to completion of EP recently, Or is EP qualified and hoping to complete CP, who has perhaps been on one of our dune trips and has not flown for a few months, This option gives the chance for refresher training, before starting CP in the Atlas, where the site is very high,. This option means we may not be able to collect you from Agadir, but can arrange a taxi (£40 ish) to meet you. ( you will need to book 2 single flights outbound Agadir, return Marrakech)

    2 week option (1 wk Agadir, 1 week Atlas) This week can be combined with the following week to complete the BHPA CP qualification, there is a reduced cost for 2 weeks.( you will need to book 2 single flights outbound Agadir, return Marrakech)

    Warning. Paragliding in Morocco is certainly for the adventurous, it is a wonderful experience in a different culture and for most people, it is a fantastic experience they remember for the rest of their lives. We strive to keep these courses as safe as possible, and at all times your safety is our priority. It should be noted that we are in remote locations without access to UK standards of rescue. Marrakech / Agadir hospitals are of a high standard, but there are no Helicopters for rescue or ambulances with Paramedic outside the city. Axis staff are remote location first aid trained and qualified, but each client should understand the dangerous nature of the sport they are undertaking, and the difficulties these locations can present. Each pilot must have an Insurance policy, to cover rescue and repatriation and medical expenses that specifically states the policy will cover paragliding activities. These policies are available from many companies, we have listed some on our links page.
