Madeira is a beautiful volcanic island west of Morocco with inland and coastal soaring and thermalling. The island’s microclimates mean that the sun’s usually shining on one of the island’s flying sites.


We’ll be staying in lovely self catering apartments above the seaside town of Calheta, a few minutes drive of the main take-offs.
