on La Palma is often difficult. Even when you find opposite information
in the web. If you are flying on la Palma without school or Guide,
you should be absolutely sure in the interpretation of the weather
situation. In addition, you should not only be an experienced pilot.
Manouvers as spiral, B-Stall and Big-Ears in order to loose altititude
should be well known by you. Althought the landing spot in Puerto
Naos is good, precise landing skills are important too.
which do already have some experienced may book the ParaGuide
Service of Palmaclub.
am recommending all unexperienced pilots to visit la Palma only
together with a paragliding school. Many are offering holidays on
of the time we are flying in lee conditions on this island. The
weather, specially the winds may change rapidly. It needs experience
to discover those developments in the air. The winds are often strong.
Good backwards starting technique is supporting you. If you are
experienced enough and like to visit the island without school and
guide, listen to the locals. And do not fly before you have talked
to the local pilots!

page folder to print out.
