Shop
We have very (very) good prices but only for our clients. If you been with us at least once, or plan to come over, you can order wings, harnesses reserves. We import Niviuk, Axis, ITV, SupAir and KarpoFly and resell Gradient, Ozone and Ava Sport. Just check with us.

How long to come for?
We see regularly how people on longer stays are more relaxed, 90% of our bookings are now for 9 or 10 day. Why? Everybody needs around 3 days to get back into flying and get a feel for the place, with a week you start to feel good just before leaving, with 10 days, you got a week in front of you!

Even in the best spot in the world you can have 2 non-flying days, on a longer stay it doesn't matter anymore. It gives you some time to go kayaking, visit the ancient theatre or the island close by, it's more like holidays! Pilots are more relaxed, not so much in a hurry to run to fly each time a minibus is going up. It of course, improves our income per customer, but it makes our job easier. It’s also on these last days that medium pilots see the result of their progress. But we understand perfectly that it’s also relative to your availability.

When is the best time to come?
It’s actually flyable all the year round but we choose to open only during the best 6 months of the year. July and August are really too hot and too strong and December to February are too stable. Note that: In late June and the first 2 weeks of September the flying conditions are fairly strong during 12 to 15 c'clock, but we have plenty of options depending on pilots levels! Days are longer in May and June and get shorter at the end of October. Sea temperature is not too warm in April for us (but very good for UK standards) but is warm from May and stays very warm until November.

Early booking!

Radios
Radios are mandatory, simply because they can save your life or the one of another pilot. If you have not got one, we have some for rent. They are also useful to call other pilots to join for a XC and to inform of where you are. Make sure that you know how to change the frequency (bring the manual). Note that the microphone system with contact on the finger is banned because of intermittent transmission while flying.

Visiting Pilots Warning!
As from 2008, following some serious problems, all our sites are now completely private and reserved to our customers. We can’t unfortunately spend 30 minutes (really necessary) to brief each visiting pilot, taking time away from our customers. There are many others flying sites not so sensitive in Greece. Medical facilities. Greece is now a rich country, their hospitals are well organized, up to the western standards and their medical staff speak English perfectly. Don't forget to bring your EHIC card with you (old E111). You can get it online here.
