On non flyable days we offer alternative activities see here if you would like to take part in these?

Designated landing fields

The west landing field, which is known as the "bull ring". This is an official landing field and only a couple of minutes away from the La Muela de Algodonales village. Here usually there is a catering kiosk serving cold drinks and snacks, or if it is not there, the bar in the village is close by for a cool drink! There is also a landing field we use next to the village of La Muela de Algodonales when the wind is light, which has the convenience of walking back to your accommodation in La Muela de Agodoanles. There are also other fields which can be used to land in however these are more like "bomb out" fields. When the wind is strong we use a landing field about 5 minutes drive from the village which has big open spaces. 

When flying the south side of the mountain there are vast open areas where it is possible to land however there is a designated landing field, (this is known as the tunnel landing field) which is the closest landing filed to Algodonales. As with flying anywhere else in the world you have to act responsible and not land in a field with crops and livestock (unless it is an emergency). When the conditions are right, there is a Venta towards the east side of the mountain range where we land for lunch.

On the ideal day the morning flights are from the south side of the mountain where you can explore the mountain ridge, if the winds are light it is possible to push out into the flats in front of the mountains then on to the hills and mountains flying satisfying circuits.
