This one week Paragliding BHPA  EP course in Southern Morocco for complete beginners, starts on the dunes of Aglou beach, and by the end of the week, you should have completed EP, be flying off an 800' 25km ridge at Nigels, and possibly started the first tasks of a BHPA CP Course. This course is also great to get started in Paramotoring.

Please book early! these courses often fill quickly, and we cannot deal with last minute bookings as permissions to fly in Morocco, and from the BHPA need to be sent in good time. Also, flights get very expensive the closer you get.

Who is this trip for Complete beginners can start their Paragliding/Paramotoring adventure on this course, It is also suitable for pilots who have had a layoff of 6 months or more to get back into the sport, with lots of ground practice and nice easy soaring conditions typically. Paramotorists starting out, this course should get them to the point of being ready to fly with a motor

11 day option This option is 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, 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.

2-week option  This week can be combined with the following week to complete the BHPA CP qualification, there is a reduced cost for 2 weeks. Week 2 takes place in the Atlas Mountains near Marakech. If you do the 2 week course you will have to fly into Agadir and return from Marakech. ( ie book 2 single flights)

Getting there. Flights are not included, and you will need to arrange your flights. The earlier you book them, the cheaper they are. If you can book early you may get flights for £150 or less, close to the departure maybe £200-250 You might be able to be on the same flight that we go out on, which will make collecting kit easier, if you are using ours. Each student will be responsible for transporting the kit out, and possibly back to us. (please check with us before you book flights and baggage) 

Flights to Agadir available from Gatwick (Easyjet) and Stanstead (Ryan air)

Staying there We have a few great places to stay whilst there. Sometimes it will be at Hotel Abertih, or sometimes on take off at Nigel's place, possibly even a night in a cave hotel, but where ever we stay, be prepared for an adventure and experience of the best kind.

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.
