About us

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, especially 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 hundred of visitor pilots all 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 learned 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.

Our team: Professional instructors

We have put together our knowledge and experience to build up a team a of professional paragliding instructors that provides an excellent service for our clients. We all come to work every day because we love what we do… and we love flying.

Our Team

  • Jose Ramon Perez

    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 to lead him to have his own paragliding Continue Reading

  • Javier Garcia

    Paragliding Instructor. Tandem Pilot. Flying since 2001. >> Javi loves to 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.

  • Pablo Andreu

    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 favorite toy is a paraglider, but he also loves the electric guitar & drums… so, his neighbors are very happy when he goes flying.

  • Jose Javier Chavero

    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 instructors that we know and, because of this, we love him.

  • Luisma

    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 become in one of our instructors!

Professional & Dedicated Paragliding Training

I went to Spain in mid-May to do the Elementary Paragliding course. The training was for six days, and the first three days were excellent. Jose and his team are very professional, know what they are doing and are good teachers. They are well organised, too, and do their best to help you whatever level you are at. The accommodation in the village was fine, although the swimming pool pictured in the website was empty. The weather got bad on day four and sadly it was not possible to complete the course. However, I would go back if I got the chance and highly recommend Jose, Zero Gravity and his team.

Great experience!

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.

An Andalucian Paragliding Experience

Breathtaking landscape, traditional Spanish food,and friendly professional instructors. The mountains were amazing, its the first thing that you notice when you get to Algodonales. The night life consisted of real Spanish food and drink with the locals being genuinely friendly. Flying in the morning with a stop at lunchtime for some Spanish food at a local restaurant. Flying continues sometimes late into the evening. Accommodation was amazingly clean and fresh. Safety during training was paramount. I felt confident and safe all of the time. The week just flew by......
An amazing experience.
