ZERO GRAVITY PARAPENTE IS THE SPANISH LOCAL PARAGLIDING SCHOOL IN ALGODONALES.
ZERO GRAVITY PARAPENTE is the name of our company, and it is also the name of our Paragliding School in Algodonales (Spain).
Years ago, when Algodonales started to become a popular destination for paraglider pilots, specially during winter and autumn season, we thought that it could be a good idea to offer our services for them. So, we created PARAGLIDING SPAIN, our sister company.
Nowadays, we are an International Paragliding School and Flight Center which provides to hundred of visitor pilots all what they need to enjoy their holidays in Spain.
Why Flying by Locals?
We are in Spain, and we are spanish guys in love with these mountains and proud of the place we live. Some foreign paragliding companies come to here only for the winter season, but we learnt to fly here, we are made here, and we know our place.
Of course, we know the flying sites and the sky, but we also know the best places to eat tapas, to drink the sweetest tinto de verano or where to celebrate a fantastic flying day with an ice cold beer.

Chief Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. Flying since 1991. >> At first Jose was a civil engineer… but he was also a paragliding pilot fully motivated to become an Instructor. He spent a long time flying in competitions. One thing led to another and some years later this fortunate turn of events has lead him to have his own paragliding school.
Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. Flying since 2001. >> Javi loves surf, cats, and “bodybuilding”. But he is also good in the kitchen! You must try his moroccan sweets or his cookies… but to be honest, his macrobiotic salad tastes bad. Fortunately he is a very good paragliding tandem pilot and the healthiest instructor that we have in our staff.
Paragliding Instructor. Tandem & Acro Pilot. Flying since 2006. >> Pablo is the young boy of our crew… but this doesn’t mean that the other members are old guys at all… ok? His favourite toy is a paraglider, but he also loves the electric guitar & drums… so, his neighbours are very happy when he goes to fly.
Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. Flying since 1991. >> When Jose Javier is not being a jerk by forgetting to switch on his Go Pro camera during dual flights, he enjoys sailing his boat. On the other hand, he is one of the best paragliding instructor that we know and, because this, we love him.
Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. Flying since 1999. >> Luisma was one of our students and we did a good job teaching him to fly because some years later he has became in one of our instructors!
Just finished para1 and 2.still buzzed. Am 52 years old (shush) and found the course was exactly what i thought. If like you have a genuine fear of heights this is for u. Slowely slowely no pressure. Guys Pablo and Jose are calm and understanding with slow guys like myself. My advice is go for it. Its a nice way to stay in a village in the spanish mountains and although you get your own space in the accomadation you are part of a group. Village resturaunts are cheap cheap cheap.Again go for it. Bollox you only live once. A paddy

To live is to fly
I've always dreamed of flying.
It was my childhood passion. It was my grown up dream.
It was just something out of my reach, for many years. I tried to pursue it - with simulators, games, and eventually with real aircraft. Never did it fulfill my desire until -
I booked a 2 weeks course at Zero Gravity to try paragliding.
I didn't jump into the sports blindfolded, my coworker recommended to try it. And he praised it.
He was not wrong. Training with you guys is easy, safe, and effective.
It was an exhausting 2 weeks, but probably the best 2 weeks of my life so far.
I could not think of a better way of spending time than with you.
I don't have to dream about flying anymore, now I can fly.
Have attended 03-10 September¨16. Great CP+ week despite temperature of 40+ degrees. In average two flying hours per day accompanied with vultures. A lot of patience from Pablo and Jose, amazing experience.
be the holy jezus,be gora be gora
Best experience of a lifetime, Jose and Pablo hit all the right notes, done Para Pro Satge 3 on a return course to Algodonales and found the beginners course which was run in tandem... ha ha... was a great refreshing experience. Para Pro Stage 3, was a bit more entebce and the guys encourage you to excell. No regrets here, will be back.
I had high expectations for this the Para Pro 1/2 course but it managed to surpass my expectations! Jose and Javi were really good instructors and gave very clear instruction and advice for every aspect. Instruction via radio was perfect and they let us make more and more decisions as we progressed. The took us to 2 different locations for hops and 4 different sites for our proper flights. I would highly recommend this company and hope to come back for more in the near future.
