Located in the west coast of Italy, the region Lazio offers great conditions for soaring above the huge rocky landscape and old stone villages. In the autumn there are still gentle temperatures with thermal activity, which give you good opportunity for XC flights. All flying sites are situated 50 km south from Roma. We will be staying in beautiful village Sermoneta in a friendly, fully equipped hotel, which was originally a stone convent. A Nice pub is also nearby. Close to our location is Mount Vesuvius and UNESCO World Heritage Site Pompeii, an old Roman city, which was completely buried on 24 August, 79 AD by the volcano’s eruption. A trip to Rome is also possible.

Come and join us on our trip to still sunny Italy, along with good flying and traditional great Italian cuisine.

The price includes:

  • Transfers to and from the airport Rome Ciampino Airport (Fiumicino)
  • Transports to and from all flying sites
  • Meteo analysis, forecasts, daily weather updates
  • Fees for using airspace and take-off places
  • Launching supervision
  • Flying tips, tasks and goals to achieve
  • Radio communication and coaching during flights
  • Theoretical tailor-made coaching
  • Analysis and debriefings together with the instructors
  • PG Base T-shirt
  • Photo CD
  • One tandem flight ticket at the half price

On our trips we always work minimally in a team of one chief instructor and a driver, however most of the times you are looked after by three and more instructors to give you the maximum value on your XC day. One is flying in the front of the squadron with high performance wing, searching for the best thermals and route and the second pilot is closing the group looking after the slower ones and pilots flying school wings. If you are unlucky and had to lend, there is always our driver here to pick you up. This is ideal way of flying in a group and maximizes your chance for a good flight. Not like the others we do our best to keep you airborne.

The price excludes:

  • Accommodation; we organize the best deal for whole group according your requirements well in advance. (Usually 15 euros/night).
  • Meals, lunch, evening meals and drinks are not included.
  • Single rooms are most of the time available at extra charge.
  • Flight tickets, you will be advised about flight tickets.

 

At the moment return flight tickets are available for about £110 with the luggage.

As soon as we receive deposits from the minimum number of pilots required for the trip then we will try to find the best price for flights and then pilots pay for them directly themselves.
