Changes for 2013
We would also like to take the opportunity to announce a few changes for next year’s flying season.
Extra Pilot Spaces for the Big XC Months
Our decision to open the booking for 2013 earlier this year has resulted in most of the weeks in June to early September being fully booked before our usual booking calendar publishing time in January. We have had a number of emails from disappointed pilots who have not had a chance to book weeks that are convenient for them.
We have therefore decided to increase the limit on the number of pilots we take during the most popular months of June to September in 2013 to 16.
The introduction of another vehicle and the further refined live-tracking system will enable us to offer an improved retrieve service. Two vehicles will allow more flexible retrieves and enable those landing early to get back sooner (perhaps for another go), rather than spending the day on the road chasing those still in the air. It should also give us easier airport runs with more scope for late and early pick-ups.
For the extra pilots we will offer a “flying only” service, without accommodation, breakfast or evening meals, at a reduced price.
We can help you arrange your local accommodation. For groups we can organize another house or we can assist individuals with hotel reservations. For those who prefer a higher standard of hotel accommodation, we now have an agreement with a 4 star hotel in El Barco at almost 50% discount for our clients. The latter is an excellent option for those coming with non-flying partners and a hire car.
Full details can be found on the booking pages on the website.
Trips to Southern Spain
We have also once again started our trips to southern Spain during October, November, March and early April as the XC and thermal soaring gets going earlier and tails off a little later down south.
Our New Admin Manager
Paul Russell, who has been our webmaster for many years and the brains behind our new “Live Tracking” system, is now taking on the role of our Admin Manager and will be dealing with bookings and payments from now on. Paul lives in the UK but spends much of the flying season with us. Puri will now be able to dedicate more time to her ¨Spanish Experience¨ venture.
We look forward to seeing many of you once again in 2013.
