Post CP Development Clinic
£1195 half board, own room en-suite
The most reliable winter location we have found in the northern hemisphere. Moroccos charm and intrigue doesn't just deliver a unique and exciting environment, it delivers super reliable coastal soaring and often light thermic conditions too. We are based on the take off, which is just 25 steps from your room at the fantastic Nid d'Aigle hotel.
I love the flying environment in Southern Morocco. So much so that I am on my 15th season at this superb playground.
Here, not only do we have smooth coastal soaring, which is ideal to learn how to really start to understand and pilot your wing, but also gentle thermic conditions which will prepare you for the
challenges that lay ahead.- be that top landing, high wind launches, soaring, turning, confined landings or reading the weather and so on.

What is a Post CP progression clinic?
Qualifying as a Club Pilot is only the first step on a long journey. Your next steps into the air as an independent pilot are, for sure, exhilarating but there is still so much more to learn to make your progression both safe and enjoyable. That's why I have created my Post CP Progression Clinics, tailored to you to make you a safer & better pilot to tackle the next steps on your path to being an aviator.
With a maximum of 6 pilots per clinic, this ensures that I can tailor my detailed coaching to your needs. Your progression will be accelerated, safe and fun with much of the coaching 1 on 1.
I will provide you with the skill set and confidence that will make you a better independent pilot equipped for the challenges that lay ahead - be that thermalling, cross country, confined landings, reading the weather and so on.
Pre and post flight briefings are an essential part of the clinic and compliment the in-flight coaching as well as evening video analysis.

My Teaching Philosophy
People learn in different ways, at different speeds and want to be pushed to different extents and to different levels. Much of paragliding is a mind game. Hence I don’t try and make you conform to a fixed system. I find a system to suit you. Although we laugh, play and fly as a group, as much as I can, I try to keep the coaching one to one.
My aim is to teach you to ultimately teach yourself. It all starts in the head and creating an environment where you feel comfortable and safe and up for experimenting is vital. That means sending you up on sites & in conditions where you’re comfortable then further challenged but not terrified and where conditions are consistent so that you can really consolidate the skills I teach you.
Small group power.
Many of the techniques, I will teach you 1 on 1. However, in the small group, you may learn as much from others on the course as you do from me! Watching people of a similar standard confront and overcome the same hurdles is powerful and inspirational, as well as being a whole lot of fun.
Just some of the skills I will teach you on this clinic:
strong wind take-offs
light wind take-offs
general ground handling
getting down quickly & safely
reading the conditions
We are located about a 1.5 hour drive south from Agadir airport. My technique centre is based on our main take-off site at the fabulous Nid d'agile hotel. In fact your room is about 25 steps from the main launch!
Our other sites are approx. 20 - 40 mins from base.
I believe that comfortable and high quality accommodation is an important part of the learning environment. You will be staying on a half board bases. The friendly pilots lodge serves beautiful local dishes and alcohol is available at the bar. Why not chill on the rooftop lounge and take in the beauty of the massive Saharan night sky.
